in reply to windows system tray 'pop ups'

If I were doing this, I would use a microsoft development kit make an app to sit in the tray and monitor. When conditions were right, call on your perl TK app to create the 'tray' slideout/popup.

Simply create a main window the size and position and define the activities you want it to have. To make it look like a 'popup/slideout' (drawn without window border/controls) call overrideredirect(0) on your window. Like so:

$mw->overrrideredirect(0)

Good luck
