How can I configure Unity's launcher auto-hide behavior?
How do I always show the launcher (i.e. disable the auto-hide functionality)?

The sidebar in unity by default hides and getting it back means keeping your mouse on the side of the screen for 1~2 seconds for it to appear again.

To me, that's a huge delay.

I understand why they don't make it appear instantly because you accidentally keep bringing the sidebar up which is also annoying.

But, since I'm on a wide screen monitor, is there an option to tell unity to keep the sidebar always visible? (And obviously shrink the maximized windows so that they don't go under the side bar)

I dont think so, the problem in the post mentioned above is far more specific. – Dominik Oct 28 '11 at 14:39
