I just did the same thing, roshman's link is an excellent resource, just remember there is a difference between closing and application and minimizing it tot he system tray.  If you "Close" your application it will not show up in the system tray, if it does(because you didn't destroy your icon) it won't work because you've closed your message handler with your app.  To make it appear in the system tray the program has to stay running, you merely hide the interface and show the icon in the system tray.
