    Edit This only seems to work with compiz.
    Edit2 It will work when running metacity if you remove the below option in own_window_hints.

    Use wmctrl to toggle your conky window above,below.
    Install wmctrl...
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wmctrl

    Give your conky window a title by editing your conky config.
    Add...
    Code:
    own_window_title myconky

    Also check other settings are the same as mine
    especially own_window_type normal
    eg my settings
    Code:
    own_window yes
    own_window_type normal
    own_window_title myconky
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

    Create a custom keybind in keyboard shortcuts (or add a panel launcher) using
    Code:
    wmctrl -a myconky -b toggle,above
    in the command box.
