Windows 7: Window Nagging with Auto-hide Taskbar

Window Nagging with Auto-hide Taskbar

I would really like to see MS pay more attention to the auto-hide feature of windows.

With the new compacted taskbar icons it would awesome if, when a program/window needs attention only the corresponding icon popped up instead of the entire bar.

Like a manilla folder tab peeking up.

Disable taskbar Auto-Hide when taskbar isn't covered?
Is this possible? I want to make it so that when no windows are maximized (when the taskbar isn't covered with anything) auto hide disables itself and the taskbar is shown. Is this possible?
Auto Hide Taskbar only when a window is maximized
I do not know if this is possible but ever since I switched to windows 7 it seems to me the task bar takes up an annoying amount of space and just throws off the flow when I'm reading websites. I could set the taskbar to autohide but I like the taskbar to be up at all times except when a window is...
