To start the hidden function:
When CN is moved to the side of the screen, it is hidden outside to the screen.

How it works:
When moving mouse to the screen rim where CN is hidden, CN shows up.
When moving mouse outside of the CN window area, CN restores hidden.

This is very handy when using CN to take notes when reading other materials.

I reckon this is similar the auto-hide feature of the Windows taskbar, right? You would dock CN to one of the screen/desktop edges and have it show on mouse-over and hide on mousing off...

It's not the same as the suggestion but in the meanwhile a user may try the Silent Clipping option (menu Options > Silent Clipping) which allows to take notes while doing other things without interruption. We also have a customizable hot key to show the main CN interface.
