If the cursor is within the bottom 25 pixels, I want to return.

I can get the number for the position of the bottom 25 pixels like this:
stage.stageHeight - 25

But I do not know how to get the number for where the cursor is.
public function hideControlBar(e:MouseEvent)
		{
			if( position_of_cursor > stage.stageHeight - 25 ) return;
			myTween = new Tween( controlCont, "y", Regular.easeInOut, 1, 26, .8, true );
			myTween.start();
		}

I believe you're looking for:
position_of_cursor = stage.mouseY;

Every DisplayObject (including the stage) has a mouseX and mouseY property that says where within that object the mouse is.

what carnou said is correct.

you also have access to it in the MouseEvent, as e.stageX and e.stageY



public function hideControlBar(e:MouseEvent)
		{
			if( e.stageY > stage.stageHeight - 25 ) return;
			myTween = new Tween( controlCont, "y", Regular.easeInOut, 1, 26, .8, true );
			myTween.start();
		}
