SW 2010 and Taskbar Activation on Win7x64

When I try to activate a minimized SW 2010 window on my Win7x64 Pro system I run into a strange timing issue.  First of all, if I click the SW taskbar icon with multiple documents open nothing happens.  I think that is just normal behavior for multi-window programs under Win7 since Outlook does the same thing.  Ok fine, I'll click one of the preview thumbnails that pop up showing my open docs.  However, this doesn't always work because there is a lag associated with hovering over these preview thumbnails. If I quickly move my cursor to a thumbnail and click, the SW window quickly flashes and then goes away.  In order to make it work right I have to hover the cursor over the thumbnail long enough for the SW window to come up.  This takes about a second.  Now I can click the thumbnail to keep the SW window open.  This is probably a Win7 issue, but I'm relatively new to anything more modern to XP, so maybe someone who knows more about the OS can help me get rid of this annoyance. Thanks.
