Ubuntu: How to Auto Hide top and bottom panels?

Auto hiding top and bottom panels has become essential to have more usable space while working at my 14" laptop.

This is how it is done.
  1. Right click on the panel which you want to auto hide once you move away from it
  2. Goto properties
  3. Pick up 'Auto Hide' option from there
     You can do the same for the top panel.

    The wonderful thing about Ubuntu is that it never comes in your way. Auto Hiding would make you even more distraction free.
