Is your application vanishes after minimize ? Don't worry still they are running, just press Alt+Tab to see them again(it is a app switcher too). The root of this problem is that you accidentally deleted Window Listt from Gnome Panel. Right click at any black space on the panel and choose Add to Panel option, now from the window opened - click on Window List and then click on Add button, you are done man ! Again you will see your running applications as usual on panel.
