Bug Description

I would like to suggest a change in the (click-)behavior of the trayicon. Most Windows applications with a trayicon show/hide their main window when (double-)clicked.
Calibre however restores the application as it was before, that is if it was minimized to the taskbar it will just show/hide the taskbar icon. In my opinion that is not the expected behavior of a trayicon.

Also perhaps an option of "minimize to tray" (instead of to taskbar) would be nice.

Simply close calibre, when the tray icon is present, closing calibre is
the same as minimizing to tray.

As for restoring the window if it is minimized to taskbar, this is not
something I aminterested in implementing. If you use the close button
instead of the minimize button, it becomes unneccessary. However,
patches are welcome.
