Let me open Sametime from the systray icon.

Having my Sametime list built into Notes 8 has proved to be a mixed blessing. I'm greedy for the screen space in my Notes client, so I leave the sidebar completely minimized most of the time.  When I want to start a conversation with someone over Sametime, I find myself clicking the icon in the systray to try to open up my contact list...which doesn't do anything. I have to go into Notes and cllick on the teensy sidebar arrow to get my contact list open.
It would be much more quick and convenient if that systray icon served as a shortcut to Sametime instead of just an indicator of my availability status.

Yes, I do the same, so hopefully this is fixed

It worked fine in 6 & 7. Why'd you break it? OK, it could have been cleaner then. But now it is at least 4 clicks just to get logged in. And you can't login to Sametime at all from Designer or Administrator clients. Those indicators in the status bar are dead. And yes, the arrow to collapse the right sidebar that contains Sametime, RSS feeds, etc is way too small and it only closes. It doesn't open. Was any of this run through usability testing?
