When you use Media player classic in minimal preset
(you may work and watch video) it is some times need to
minimize (and stop) player. but it is impossible. To do
that you need turn on system menu, and stop and click
minimize button.
It will be greatest if:
1. MPC stop play video file if minimized
2. In right-click mouse menu apear "minimize" command
3. On escape(or backspace) in minimize preset MPC will
stop and minimize.

It has to be very simple but very imortant for those ho
work in "multitask-mode".

sorry for bad English

    I will forward your feature requests to the author.

    - It is not possible to pause the player with the left mouse
    button as in minimal preset mode (state) the mouse is used
    to move the player window.

    - The minimize command will be added to the player's context
    menu (right click menu) in the future (hopefuly). But the
    auto pause with minimize will not be added. If one want to
    listen to music (mp3) and he minimize the player by this
    way, it will pause the playback for him too.

    - Finally you can press SPACE button to pause the player in
    minimal preset mode and if you left click on the taskbar
    icon of MPC it will minimize it to the taskbar. Or if the
    Options/Player/Tray icon option is checked in, it will
    minimize it to the system tray. Clicking again on the
    taskbar icon or on the system tray icon will pop up the MPC
    window again. And you can use the space button again.

    There is no need to set back the normal preset.

    Gabest added the "Boss key" feature (default key: B) with
    that, MPC will instantly pauses and minimize the player.

    Now you can use MPC even if the boss is near :)
