gadgets disappear when I click "show desktop"

Pretty sure in the past when I "show desktop" (button in lower right, or Windows+D) my gadgets would still be visible, but now they disappear just like the other open programs.

Is there a way to get it back to they stay visible?

If I hoover over the Show Desktop Button they stay, but if I click on it they go away.
