NotifyIcon not disappearing after timeout

Does anyone know why my Balloon is not disappearing after 5 seconds? Here is my code:

        With Me.NotifyIcon
            .Icon = Me.Icon
            .ShowBalloonTip(5000, "This is the title", "Program is running", ToolTipIcon.Info)
        End With

It does disappear if I click the close button or the bubble itself, but not after the timeout.
I've just started using VB2005.

Thanks.

Hi JedNebula,

Don't know to well but the notifyicon doesn't work for me to. What i have made is to add an additional timer to do the hide. Somehting like this:

Private ToolTipTimer As New Timer
Private nf As NotifyIcon

Sub ToolTipTimerEnd(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        nf.Visible = False
        ToolTipTimer.Enabled = False
End Sub

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

nf = New NotifyIcon
With nf
      .Icon = Me.Icon
      .Visible = True
      .ShowBalloonTip(5000, "This is the title", "Program is running", ToolTipIcon.Info)
End With

With ToolTipTimer
       .Interval = 5000
       .Enabled = True
End With
AddHandler ToolTipTimer.Tick, AddressOf ToolTipTimerEnd

End Sub

@jpaulino nice code to get round this issue.

FYI I would add "nf.Visible = True" to your ToolTipTimerEnd Sub. Which will then stop the notify icon from disappearing, and I would stop the timer first.
Sub ToolTipTimerEnd(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        ToolTipTimer.Enabled = False
        nf.Visible = False
        nf.Visible = True
End Sub
