I would like to have it not docked, but not in front of (or on top of) all the other windows I have open. Most other software offers me a choice of on top, on bottom, on desktop, normal etc.

Well I've been using it for a couple of months counting down important birthdays. I set it up in a corner of the screen where it autohides until activated as a strip across the screen. Simple and effective.
Am we there yet?

This program is very good, but isn't possible to disable the "always on top" state?

Also will be amazing in gadget for the windows 7 sidebar  :-*

btw if you disable the "always on top state" it can stay opened forever below other gadgets without problem :-)

Can you try this new beta:
DOWNLOAD:

You should see a new option on General tab to turn off OnTop behavior.  Uncheck that and see if it works ok.

Can you elaborate? You found the new checkbox option and turned it off?  How are you testing it?

yes but can you be more specific -- what exactly doesn't work? What happens vs what you expect to happen?
