Re: always on top

Originally posted by gboy
So again a little problem with "always on top".

I found something that Scorpio9a also mentioned in his post:
namely: main window disappeares after a time using other programs (like firefox, tcmd, wscite...).

I think the reason is the "Disable always on top while fullscreen applications are focused" setting as it cannot decide whether an application is fullscreen or not.
Another thing is that it disables AOT permanently, so I have to manually untick and tick it again, to work properly after eg. pressing F11 in firefox or IE.
If I turn off "Disable AOT..." everything's fine.

System info (if it helps):
Winamp 5.094 clean install
mobo: Dell Optiplex GX60 (i845GL)
OS: XP Home 5.1.2600 SP2
Video: Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV
Intel 82801DB(M) ICH4(-M) - AC'97
DirectX 9.0c

No third party plugin, no language pack, classic skin...
The "Always on top" is lost when someone clicks on "Show Desktop" shortcut in WinXP, which I personally click a lot. Unchecking "Disable always on top while fullscreen applications are focused" fixes that problem, but then you lose this specific feature.

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Show Desktop command is a fullscreen app
