Windows 7: Taskbar sticking in visible position...

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Taskbar sticking in visible position...

My problem is with the taskbar, which is set to auto-hide, popping up and staying up because of some loaded application wanting attention.

For example, when I launch Google Chrome, which I have set to reload all previously open windows and tabs, I generally have to go look at each open window in order to get the task bar to hide again. It gets really annoying when I am trying to do something and I have to quickly find and switch to whichever window is saying "Look at me!!" in this method when I may not want to do so right away.

Is there any way of keeping the auto-hidden taskbar hidden, no matter what these other applications say?
