Maya child windows behavior in OSX


I recently started using Maya on Mac OSX, after having always used it on Linux at work, and I'm really baffled by the child windows behavior (think Hypershade, Graph Editor, Script Editor, etc...)

The shortcut Cmd+~ does switch focus, but they stay on top of the main window. That means that if I opened one of these, but need to work in the main maya window, I need to click on the minimize button (because Cmd+M doesn't work on these!!!), and I need to click in the dock to recall them...

Surely I must have missed something, didn't I? Can't be possible people work like this ^^ Is there a way to ensure the child windows are hidden by the main window when I switch focus using Cmd+~?
