yes no intelli-hide type...
I believe LXDE-panel has that tho.
So can change session to use LXDE-panel and not
xf-panel. (more limited panel tho)
Can do away with xf-panel in session if use only use other panel (but cario uses more resorces and watch for plugins that acually are based on 'Gnome' (even more dependecies/memory usage).
I actually like a 'conky' (sits a wallpaper and allway behind windows) and has a multitude of plugins/components.
