Epsylon is right...
Many threads here have trying to find the solution.
And it's clearly stated in the microsft documentation
that it cannot be done.

quote from microsoft:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/shellcc/shellcc/shell/Shell_Int/Taskbar.asp

"
The taskbar supports two display options: Auto Hide and Always On Top. To set these options, the user
must open the taskbar shortcut menu, click Properties, and select or clear the Auto Hide check box or
the Always On Top check box. There is no way to set these options programmatically.

"
you can only make your own shappbar's autohide by using setstate function.

if you tell us why you need it then maybe we find another workaround

if you need it because it is annoying in a full screen application
then you should the same thing games do: switch the resolution
