DragonMage - Starting visible is what I planned, but I don't think there would be much of a difference if I started invisible. Either way is fine, as long as every mouse over it changes. I don't quite have it yet... so I await your code. Thanks ahead!

So I'm stuck, who could've guessed?
This is what I've got so far:
[Rainmeter]
MouseLeaveAction=!Execute [!RainmeterSetTransparency #Hide#][!RainmeterSetVariable Hide #Show#][!RainmeterSetVariable Show #Hide#]
DynamicVariables=1

[Variables]
Hide=1
Show=255
Aside from it well, becoming invisible and not coming back.
I have a feeling even if it did work: #Hide# becomes #Show#. Then #Show# becomes #Hide# - but #Hide# is now equal to #Show# - so the second command ends up being #Show# becomes #Show#. Is this correct?
And I have a feeling DynamicVariables might not work under [Rainmeter] which would be the main cause of it not working.

Based on my messing with it, I think you may be right that variables are not dynamic when used in the [Rainmeter] section.

No, the [Rainmeter] section does not support dynamic variables.

If the horse isn't dead yet, I believe OP can accomplish his goal if he can live with using DeskHedron (http://tokyodownstairs.blogspot.com/2008/10/deskhedron.html) as his virtual desktop manager.

The "desktops" are so isolated in DeskHedron that you can actually run different instances of Rainmeter on each virtual desktop if you so choose.
