Image. I'm pretty sure it's not because of the custom theme I'm using because the windows basic one has the same result. Any idea on how I can hide it completely but keep the mouse over to show feature?

Maybe your monitor needs a little tweaking. They can drift on occasion.

It only has a on/off button, I can't tweak it anyhow. I have a linux installed on this PC and the auto-hide feature enabled on it too, no such problem there.
