With multiple apps open, just like you've done but, you need to hover the mouse over each thumbnail to enable the ture aero peek. A good example is to have several internet explorer tabs open and hover the mouse over each of them.

Windows 7 Ult x64(x2), HomePrem x32(x4), Server 08 (+VM), 08 R2 (VM) , SuSe 11.2 (VM), XP 32 (VM)

also it wont work if the app you are trying to get is either minimized (this one is a mixed bag sometimes it works sometimes it dosen't...) or maximized (also a mixed bag...)

and i also see you are using minefield so that can be it too..
can you try it with another application?

I does seem like it's more apparent in Apps that aren't maximized (e.g. multiple explorers open)..

Hi! I believe this is a performance issue. I just moved to Windows 7 from Vista. Occassionally, the Office 2007 applications will not show a preview using Aero Peak. (This happened in Vista but of course without Aero Peek). The issue seems intermittent and doesn't affect all open Office...
