Windows 7: Taskbar - always on top.

Hello there,
I hope you can help me with this.
I actually want the taskbar always on top AND auto-hiding. I'd prefer to use Windows-Explorer and Firefox in the fullscreen mode (F11), but then, I cannot access to the auto-hiding taskbar.
(I wouldn't like to have the taskbar on top of fullscreened Media Center or games, but as I'm not used to use them often, I could live with that.)
Any ideas?

If you hit "Ctrl + Esc" the task bar will pop up

Yes, I know. I can equally press the windows button, but I'd like to open the taskbar just with the mouse and without popping up the start menu (cuz I barelly need it).
Thanks
