The Genie Effect that occurs when you send a document to the Dock sure looks cool, but things that look cool generally eat up processing power, and that holds true with the Genie Effect as well (besides, although the Genie Effect looks cool the first couple of times you see it, it doesn't take long before you want to put the genie back in its bottle for good). To turn off the Genie Effect and use the faster Scale Effect, Control-click on the vertical Dock divider bar, and in the resulting pop-up menu, under Minimize Using, choose Scale Effect. This decreases the burden on the system resources and keeps things moving at full speed.
