Glad to have an alternative to F.lux, but this is nowhere near it yet. I am hoping author listens to the advice I posted in Ghacks :)

"If you start the program manually (or via CLI) and you want it to hide in the tray, add the "/hidewindow" parameter."

job_toss, thank you! That worked perfectly.

The author was pretty non-responsive. He emailed me like 1-2 months after my initial wishlist/suggestions and shot down every one. -__- I wish he had just told me that when I asked about this problem.
