    Another handy tip for Hot Corners is, you can add a modifier key to a corner gesture, such as the command key. This way you won’t have a corner action accidently triggered unless you are holding down the modifier key while moving your mouse to the corner.

      I added a modifyer key to hot corners in Snow Leopard. It worked great, but the modyfied key disappears on me after a while and the hot corners get activated again solely by the mouse!

        Not sure why that would happen. Try adding it bacl and see how long it lasts.

    Greeaatt!! I had a complete misunderstanding of what hot corners was. I was in system preferences and had done all you stated, however, I thought hot corners was having to “click” on the corner of the trackpad. Great explanation. Thank you.
