Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

Just tried the update. Very nice. Been using the first one all morning.

One thing I'd like is when I put it to sleep, it jumps out on the screen. Not a big deal, but would be nice if it stayed about where the 7 logo is on the full sized gadget. In other words, under my other gadgets.

Great job.

Thanks z3r010 , thank u all, glad I made something useful.

Garysgold, can you post a screenshot with your other gadgets to see what you mean?

Edit: I think I know what you mean, you can drag it from the bottom where it says "sleeping", not from the image.

Here you go. All pics are of the first monitor. Two monitors may be part of the problem.

If I drag the sleeping gadget back under the others, Then I get this.

Windows 7 Beta 1 b7000

Nicely done, I like it a lot. My only suggestion would be to separate the size/sleep button. Or have a way to cycle through the options in both directions. Great work though, thanks a lot!

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Yes, very nice Limneos. The border's nice and the varied sizes and sleep mode. Excellent work for your very first gadget. I'm sure you need some sleep by now, LOL.

Feedback note, changing to different sizes is kind of slow and sticky, at least for me.
