powersaving revert to opaque on battery no longer functioning

Recommended Posts

Whenever i used to go off the mains and onto battery, the taskbar (classic start on 8.1)  and menus used to go opaque. i assume this meant that aeroglass was shut down for the sake of powersaving.  Now, however, no matter how many transparency settings i turn off in classic start menu settings i can never turn off the main taskbar transparency!: either on AC or DC power.

 

many thanks for any thoughts or insight on how to restore this functionality ....

Taskbar transparency has never been handled by Aero Glass.

monkey wrench:

 

1 uninstalled CS (taskbar still trans)

 

2 uninstalled AG (taskbar goes opaque)

 

3 reboot.

 

4 reinstall AG ONLY: transparency applied to all windows as well as taskbar...

 

5 uninstall AG: opaque taskbar returned.

 

 

Whats going on? AG install is triggering transparency of taskbar and uninstall triggering return to opaque...

 

.... tnx
