Windows 7: Customize Aero Snap or alternative sofware?

Customize Aero Snap or alternative sofware?

I really like the keyboard shortcuts for snapping windows to the side (windows key + left/right) but I hate it through the mouse (dragging a window left/right/up). I know I can disable the function altogether but I prefer to have the left/right snapping features though the keyboard.

The thing that bothers me most is that I can't drag a window off the top screen (i.e. so that the title bar is off screen and more of the actual content is shown). My laptop has a low resolution with only 768 pixels in height, and I like to play games in windowed mode so that I can easily switch between windows without a big spiking "lag time" for the game to function again.

Is there a way to customize it so that only the keyboard shortcuts work, or at least make it so that the dragging to the top of the screen doesn't maximize the window? If not, is there any third party software that can do this?
