I guess one could put them down on the taskbar set to "stay topmost" so they don't fight the taskbar always wanting to be in front.

Very good positioning, it even remids you of where the leds used to be (relatively). I try to avoid using "stay topmost" option, however, even I love the concept of a skin above the taskbar, because of it's persistence to stay topmost even in media player's full mode, or even screensaver. Now that we are talking about it, does your to-do list include a way to disable this? :) Perhaps by detecting a full screen (without taskbar) application?

Hi JS,

Would you be able to build in the functionality to set the state? So far I've been using a powershell script but its really slow.
