Docking windows

I'm looking for research or suggestions on the interaction and feedback
when docking a window within an application with the mouse.

Old-school docking used invisible drop targets and showed outlines to
indicate where the window would dock. Users would get frustrated poking
the mouse around trying to find that sweet spot that did what was
wanted. New docking methods use explicit drop targets to eliminate the
guesswork, see <http://www.bcgsoft.com/FeatureTour/tour170.htm>.

Logitech Harmony Universal Remote - positive feedback...

Anyone here own one of these?
Anyone here work on this thing?

Just had an unprompted fly-by from one of the software engineers in our
organization who was quite impressed by the way the device approaches

Apparently, when he presses the help button, the device actually
attempts to help (by actually changing its response to the most recent
button press).

I found no discussions of the device in the IxDA archives and thought it
was an interesting approach.

Behavior of "Previous" button

I'm looking for a standard on this! All comments welcome.

When in a web-based, form-based application with multiple pages (Previous,
Next buttons on each page), should the previous button validate/save dirty
data when clicked? Or should user be warned that data on current page is
dirty and be asked to make a decision to either save or continue to
previous page?

Aside from standards, what would your preference be?

Hot Key standards

I have been asked to provide hot key standards for a desktop application
that is suffering from clashing mnemonics due to a desire to put a
hotkey on every piece of functionality, Menu bars, menu items and icons.
For example, depending on the context Ctrl P could do more than one
thing: Print or access a polygon icon, and did Print open the Menu item
or access the Print icon
The product manager wants to remove hotkeys. On first look it seems to
me they need simple rules based around the grid layout of their dialogs.
