Dashboard when screen sharing!
A great tip submitted by Dominic P. Tremblay: Dashboard when screen sharing! I always use the F12 shortcut to launch Dashboard, because I think dragging the mouse to the Dock to click on the icon is so much longer. I finally found why the icon is useful though. When you are using Leopard's new screen sharing feature, pressing on F12 will launch dashboard on your own Mac even if you mouse is in the shared screen window. The only way that I found to open Dashboard on the remote Mac is to click on the icon in the Dock. Thanks for the tip Dominic!
