I was searching for that also but I believe it's impossible with tkinter
according to this :

> from Tkinter import *
> root = Tk()
> root.withdraw()                         # Hide the window
> root.deiconify()                                # Unhide the window

I'm using also deiconify for a windows app. It worked fine as long as I was
in the "main thread" but I had random problems when using it from another
thread (which I couldn't avoid).

I'm trying/learning wxpython now for a proper systray control and to see how
the "deiconification from another thread" behave.
