Regarding rainmeter and windows 7 sidebar

Is it possible to use the skin of some customized rainmeter gadgets for the gadgets provided by windows 7 sidebar itself? Because it's annoying whenever I click on "show desktop" at my quickbar, gadgets from rainmeter automatically minimizes too while gadgets from windows 7 sidebar sticks to the desktop, but the skin i downloaded are all for rainmeter and they're really pretty, otherwise is there a solution to make the gadgets stick when i press show desktop?

In rainmeter you can set it so the rainmeter gadget is on the desktop meaning it is the same as the back ground so it can't go away. You right click your rainmeter gadget and then its one of the choices there. I do not have rainmeter any longer so I can not be more specific but it is possible.
