    There isn't anything you can really do to have that happen, considering that is based on each different program. the only program i have ever seen able to do that ... aside from using Wine and running windows applications, was the newest version of Gaim. but that was a little buggy so i went back to pre-0.6 version days when it doesn't allow for it. but if anyone else knows a way, please share so i can learn something new and not feel like a complete goober for telling Satyanand he couldn't do it.

    There's a great one for Windoze called TrayIt!, but I don't know of an equivalent for Linux. Or if there even is one...
