Hello Jeremy,

While I'm not sure how to position the windows, I have created a  
script to minimize windows based on name.


Take a look at the last three functions called an you can modify the  
criteria for minimizing.  This version also makes RAT always on top  
and disables the X to close it.  All of this is for windows only.

If you come up with a good way to launch this after AG starts, let me  
know -- Also, perhaps this could be modified to position windows.
