Windows 7: Aero Shake problems??

Aero Shake problems??

I've been using Win 7 since January, but rarely use the Aero shake feature. In TV commercials they make it look so easy. It takes me about 25 shakes until I can get the windows to disappear.

Is there a trick to get it to work. When you move it side to side, how far do you need to jerk the window?

Thanks

Hardly has to be shaken at all, maybe a few cms across the screen but the important thing is to shake atleast 3 times. e.g. Left, Right, Left or Right, Left Right. Can also be done vertically.

supposedly meant to help people focus on a single task by minimizing all other things. but if you have gadgets on your desktop i dont see how its helping you focus :P

It would have been a lot more useful if you could instigate the shake anywhere in a window, instead of just the title bar.

I rarely use it so I tend to forget it's there.

Works better with an external mouse too.

Yeah, aero shake is my least favorite Windows 7 feature. I use Aero peek and Aero snap a lot...but Aero shake is usually just used when I demo the features of Windows 7 for somebody....i don't use it in practice.
