Default disable auto maximize on linux mint 11

My first post, so apologies if this is not quite the right place.
i have an asus eee 1000H netbook, screen space is at a premium.
I was using ubuntu, but like many, I have found 11.04 rubbish and 11.10 completely unusable, so I am trying to defect to linux mint 11, which I have heard good things about.

just drag & dropping and resizing windows causes them to auto maximize, I'm guessing that this is 'aero snap' how do I turn this off or disable it?

cheers!

I will try to answer you, at the moment this is a test for me, I have gotten no notices from the site so am trying to see if something is wrong. I don't have a Mint installation right now, but in Kubuntu it is in the 'Window Behavior' system setting, where there are 3 sub-windows, one named 'Window Behavior', that has 5 tabs, the 4th one is where you can set the area for snapping to 'none'. The only snapping I want done is the necks of the xxxxxs who put this $%%^&&$ in our systems. Fortunately none of them have been around at certain times.... Maybe the above can steer you in the right direction for your Mint setup. Why can't they have the snapping only with say the window key depressed? Next necks that need snapping are the Unity folk, and all their genetic kin.
