I am trying to automate my computer system  "showing taskbar, chat programs, media programs etc" by Hovering over the specified location. Atm i am using code like this

**Example Code

;Chat Hover
$pos = MouseGetPos()
if $pos[0] <= -1880 Then
   if $pos[1] <=360 then
  sleep(75)
  $pos = MouseGetPos()
  if $pos[0] <= -1880 and $pos[1] <=360 and $ChatHover=0 Then
   $ChatHover=1
   WinSetTrans("Windows Live Messenger", "", 255)
   WinSetOnTop("Windows Live Messenger", "", 1)
  EndIf
EndIf
If $pos[1] >=360 and $pos[1] <=720 Then
  sleep(75)
  $pos = MouseGetPos()
  if $pos[0] <= -1880 and $pos[1] >=360 and $pos[1] <=720 and $ChatHover=0 Then
   $ChatHover=1
   WinSetState("Friends","",@SW_RESTORE)
   WinSetOnTop("Friends", "", 1)
  EndIf
EndIf
If $pos[1] >=720 and $pos[1] <=1080 Then
  sleep(75)
  $pos = MouseGetPos()
  if $pos[0] <= -1880 and $pos[1] >=720 and $pos[1] <=1080 and $ChatHover=0 Then
   $ChatHover=1
   WinSetTrans("Skype™ - lann1990", "", 255)
   WinSetOnTop("Skype™ - lann1990", "", 1)
  EndIf
EndIf
Else
If $pos[0] <= -1700 and $ChatHover=1 Then
Elseif $chathover=1 then
WinSetTrans("Windows Live Messenger", "", 0)
    WinSetOnTop("Windows Live Messenger", "", 0)
WinSetTrans("Skype™ - lann1990", "", 0)
WinSetOnTop("Skype™ - lann1990", "", 0)
WinSetState("Friends","",@SW_MINIMIZE)
WinSetOnTop("Friends", "", 0)
$Chathover=0
EndIf
EndIf

Is there any better way of detecting when mouse is over a location rather then using lots of ifs?
