This question already has an answer here:

The title kind of explains itself. Docky will just randomly crash. It will ask If I would like to restart or keep closed, If I try and restart, it wont. Its becoming frustrating as I prefer Docky over Launcher. Anyone have a fix for this? BTW I'm a Ubuntu noob.... Thanks in advance for your help.

this is to be reported as BUG not an answer. use this command to generate and report bugs.

apport docky. that will collect and inform launchpad about docky.

ps: my docky also crashes very often but at that time I.will use report bug button in the crash window.

How : Just open your terminal and type as

ubuntu-bug docky

then you will get a windows like enter image description here

that will collect all the information about your application and with positive actions you can report it to launchpad.
