Well the panel plugin is called the notification area. Apps such as 
Pidgin, Rhythmbox, etc use it to be minimized to an icon sometimes. 
Typically to minimize applications to the notification area you can just 
click the icon (as with Pidgin).

But if you shade the window first and then try to minimize to the 
notification area, nothing happens.
