I have added a cewp to my sharepoint 2010 page. I want to hide the webpart. When I click Edit the WebPart and expand the Layout section, the Hidden checkbox is grayed out. Is there something I am missing? Thanks in advance.

ACH1LLES,
When I click the arrow in the top right corner of the CEWP the options I have are: Minimize, Edit Web Part and Export. I clicked on Edit Web Part and expanded the Advanced section this is what i have.

You need to select "Edit Page" in the ribbon before the Close option will show up

I selected 'Edit Page' in the ribbon and then clicked on the dropdown arrow in the CEWP. The options that I have now are :  cewp menu
Next I selected 'Edit Web Part' the options under the Layout and Advanced sections are stilled grayed out. I am not able to make any changes to them.
  cewp properties
Is there a setting I have missed in Central Administration to allow these changes?

No.  Explain to me why you can't just delete or minimize it?

In SP2007 I used the CEWP to modify the page by adding code (CSS or javasript) to the CEWP. I would then just hide it. If I minimize the CEWP the user can just restore it. If I delete it then I am not able to modify the page.

Appending the query string to the end of the URL allowed me to add the CEWP to my page and hide it .
