    By default, the LayoutFloatingWindowControl will set its owner. So when the owner is minimized, the owned window is also minimized.

    To prevent this, you could go in file Xceed.Wpf.AvalonDock/Controls/LayoutFloatingWindowControl.cs,
    in method OnLoaded
    and remove the line :
    this.SetParentToMainWindowOf( Model.Root.Manager );

    This way, your FloatingWindow won’t have an owner and shouldn’t be minimized when the main window is minimized.
