Can not find autostart option and docking option in preferences. TheBrain9 do not autostart and do not minimize to icon. 
Dock and Auto-Hide
Here is Harlan's explanation of why the Dock & Hide option was sunsetted.

Here's the lengthy forum discussion from which Harlan's feedback was excerpted.

I do sorely miss this feature, but I'm managing now with a dock/hide work-around that leaves TB9 parked on my task bar. Not ideal by any means, but it works.

I'm not sure to what "auto-start" feature you are referring. I am working on Windows 7, and I've just added TB to my startup menu so it loads automatically.
