Im looking for a way to make my map disappear when I'm in combat to help free up some screen real-estate.Currently, I'm using sexymap, and if possible would like to continue to use it, but I would really like to make the map vanish when entering combat like my chocolate bar does.Any suggestions?

Larger chocolate bars so that they take longer to vanish and you don't mind the minimap?

Try Kong UI Hider i think it's called. You can set it to different opacities (real word?) For combat, no combat, no combat plus target, etc

One alternative is to turn on the Fader in Sexymap and then set the Normal Opacity to 0% and the Hover Opacity to 100%. You will want to set all of the buttons to display "On hover" as well.This will turn the map (and the buttons) transparent by default; they will re-appear when you hover your mouse over the map location on your screen. Only flaw is that selected items (target, focus) will still be displayed unless you turn that function off in the main WoW options.Not a perfect solution but since I only need/use the map once in a great while, it works for me.I suppose you could also get Minimap Button Frame and set the opacity in Sexymap to 0% in all cases (there may even be an addon out there that just turns off the Minimap completely.) Use Button Frame access buttons when you need them, use the main map to see where you are, when you need that, and do without a Minimap completely.

Just realized you can turn off the tracking of Target and Focus - click the Tracking button on the Minimap and de-select those options. doh!
