Click on the "cashew" looking thingy on the end of the taskbar. Click on 
"More Settings". Hiding should be the sixth option down the list. At 
least that's where it is in my Kubuntu 9.10/KDE 4.2. I suppose YMMV.

I have noticed that KDE 4 is slower than KDE 3.x overall but that's just 
my own observation. I still have a few things about KDE 4.x that I'm not 
so happy with but overall I believe it will improve given time. After 
all from what I hear KDE 3.x wasn't so hot in its birthing either [ 
before my time with Linux ].
