Is there a way to change the method of hiding and unhiding the panel in MATE? In the properties it is possible to set Autohide, hiding the panel and unhiding it when moving the mouse pointer into its area. This is good to unshow the panel, but also has some disturbing side effects.

When both Plank or Cairo Dock and the panel are in the bottom, moving the mouse to the button can get confusing results triggering one or the other to show up. When moving the panel to the top and having a browser in fullscreen, moving the mouse to the top to click browser tabs also triggers the panel to unhide.

Is there a way to remove the mouse over event, and instead choose a keyboard shortcut to trigger panel hiding and unhiding?
