Taking control of the Taskbar???

For a while now, I have been trying to find a way to stop the taskbar from appearing unless I instruct it to, mouseover is a pain in the ass when I am playing WoW and other games. Does anyone know of a decent app or reg hack to stop the damn appearing?

Cheers in Advance,

Have tried that one. Not quite what I am looking for. I want the full taskbar to appear, that app seems to cut most of it out.
