Topic: Javascript Audio Player Problem....

I am trying to create a "flash like" audio player  for a new site using a jquery slideUp to a hidden div with the audio player in it. The problem is because the <div> is hidden when you close it, the music stops and restarts when you open it.

Is there a way to have the music keep playing even when the div is closed, or even just pause and not start over?

You can see it here: http://jbirdmedia.org/clintbrown/

I'm using this player: http://www.macloo.com/examples/audio_player/

Any ideas?
