Launch xfce4-terminal & then conky....

Hey.. I'm trying to launch conky inside a xfce4-terminal window with the following command set to a keybinding.

xfce4-terminal --hide-menubar --geometry=32x10 --execute conky -c -q /home/furycd001/Dots/conky/terminal.conf

The terminal window opens for no longer than half a second before closing by itself. I can confirm that the config does indeed work inside other terminal windows, but have no idea why the terminal window is just closing. Any help is much appreciated....

Adding a -H to the options should prevent the window from closing I believe.

xfce4-terminal -H --hide....

Tried using the "-H" option & everything now works, except there is this blue bar appearing now. How do I remove this blue bar :?
