Just installed the 10.7.3 combo on two towers. Instantly Hot Corners are not working.  FYI…

 

Please fix.

    Thanks, I hadn't noticed that!

     

    I was just about to say 'Is OK on my machine' when I discovered that after trying to re-wake (I use one hot corner for instant sleep), I couldn't get out of the screensaver (if this happens to you, choose 'switch user' from the login window, and then re-enter the same name and pwd, that seems to kill the screensaver).

    Hot corners still working for me on a 2011 MBPro & a C2D Mini. I use it to start the screensaver.

    I used Onyx to repair disk permisisons, etc. and then rebooted.

     

    My hot corners are now working properly again.

     

    I would guess using Disk Utility to repair permissions and rebooting would accomplish the same thing as well.

     

    Hope this helps somebody else!

     

    Thanks,

    I had the same problem with 10.7.4 and Lion, came here and read this thread and "LifeonTheDigitalFarm" has it right on... Go to Disk Utility and "repair permissions".. reboot and it fixes the problem.

     

    Thanks everyone!
