If I try to minimize it to the dock (by using the middle button) it minimizes to the dock, and then clicking the dock icon brings it right back.
Generally I don't minimize to the dock, though, I just use command-H to hide Aperture (and then clicking the dock icon or alt-tab brings it back). So in all cases, it works OK for me.
I'm on Mountain Lion though... Are you on 10.7.4 or 10.8?

- If you hide the Aperture Application with command-H, it is send to the Applications section of the dock; you unhide the Application by clicking the Application icon in the App-section of the dock.
- If you minimize a window, it will be send to the documents section of the Dock, at the other side of tthe dashed line separating the dock. To bring the minimized window back, don't click the Aperture Application icon in the Dock, click the Aperture Window icon in the documents section of the Dock. Or ctrl-click the Application icon and select "Show all windows", then select the Aperture Application window.

Note your point #2 is not necessarily true. In System Preferences->Dock there is a setting "Minimize windows into application icon." If you check that, then windows actually mimize to the app icon instead of into the documents section of the Dock. I highly recommend it ;-)

Right, thanks for pointing that out. I tend to ignore that option, because then I can see the documents in the Dock at a glance. Pictures and GarageBand documents are very easy to recognize when minimized in the Dock.

Thanks for the quick responses Wiliam and Leonie! When I minimize to the dock Aperture does not minimize to the documents section and never has in my case. Command + H does work, clicking the dock icon brings it back again as well. But after minimizing it does not. Very odd behavior........

I had the same problem, after reading all the comments, I tried something different.
Remove the Aperture Icon from the dock (right click, options, keep in dock)
Than start Aperture, and set it again to keep in dock.
Worked for me that way.

Thanks Miisamm, I tried your suggestion and was very hopeful - as it is very simple. Unfortunately it did not help me. The problem does not occur as long as I do not go full screen. Once I did that, the problem is there and does not go away.
