hey guys, i found the tweaks to make aeropeek appear faster for the taskbar and for the desktop by reducing its delays after adding in its dword in registry.

new issue is the peek hovers for too long before it goes away--i have to move the mouse far away and wait its delay for it to go away before i can do something else. example: im browsing the net and i use the peek, and it covers part of my browser. if theres a link there i want to click i have to wait for the peek to go away first. small detail but annoying.

anyone know the tweak?

I don't think the OP is talking about the same thing.

thanks for the responses, but i'm not sure what you guys are asking.
i've figured out how to make the the first popups appear faster and and the 'ghost' window (the peeking aspect that shows the main window and none of the others in full size).

what i am asking for is that once i move the mouse away, the initial (smaller) popups stay for about a second or two, which i would like to make disappear faster.

this isnt an issue with lag or cpu speed, its just a tweak that is predefined i believe. there wasnt a link or a guide for the request i have, which is why i made a post :)

Not had a chance to play with it, but looking at those links, just try different hover times, until it suits you.
