Windows 7: Autohidden TaskBar On Top - Pops Up when I dont' want it to - delay?

Autohidden TaskBar On Top - Pops Up when I dont' want it to - delay?

When I started using RocketDock, I moved my TaskBar to the top of the screen and placed RocketDock at the bottom. Now when I go to close a window using the "X", click on the menus, or other actions near the top of the screen, the taskbar will instantly popup and I'll end up doing something that I did not intend to do. Its pretty annoying, and wastes times as I start applications or switch to other ones unexpectedly.

Can you tell Windows that the mouse needs to hover over the top of the screen for a few seconds before the Taskbar pops up?

So far Google hasn't given me anything useful.
