Simple SQL 2005 questions

I've just upgraded to 2005 from 2000, and have a few simple questions about the new user interface.  I'd be grateful for any pointers :-)

1) What happened to the system tray icon that allowed you to turn off/on the SQL Server service?  Do I have to use the Surface Area Config tool now or is there a quicker way?

2) Is it possible for SQL Management Studio to remember the current tree node from the last user session?  This was available in Enterprise Manager's options

3) When executing queries from the query editor, is there a way to hide the Results window after execution ends?  There was a button to hide this in Query Analyzer but I can't find an equivalent

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

SQL Server Service manager is no more available with 2005, yu can use probably make use of the services ( start->run->services.msc  )  to start / stop the service
