In my experience a silly but effective trick to regain control of the 
palette is to change your screen resolution to another setting and then 
set it back. I often run into this problem when I take my laptop away 
from my desk.  At my desk I use dual monitors and the palette seems to 
forget that it should be on my laptop monitor when I disconnect from the 
second monitor.
