... but if you have your hands on the keyboard you'll have to get the mouse,
point to the window and ... when you want to click on it ... it disappears

This is interesting, once I had kopete showing its popups in the top-left
corner but I thought it is a bug. Without changing anything the next time I
started KDE the popups were back to their place: next to kopete's system tray
icon. Do you always have the popups at the top of the screen ?
