You can make the Dock icons stop bouncing off the walls, even when an application is trying to notify you of something, by entering the following command in the terminal. But first you may need to know where terminal is located at! This is found in Applications > Utilities. Now you can type the following: defaults write no-bouncing -bool TRUE Then you’ll want to restart the Dock by killing it for the changes to take effect: killall Dock You can get the bouncy Dock icons back by changing the command to FALSE rather than TRUE, and of course kill the Dock again. It makes you wonder why didn't apple call the DOCK a PLANK it sure looks like a plank to me!
