Slider on Full Screen Editor

I’ve noticed that when using the editor in full screen mode, the slider at the right hand side of the screen fades away to a solid colour strip after a few moments, much as it does on Internet Explorer.

This is just as annoying in Scrivener as it is in Internet Explorer. Is there some way I can turn it off?

The slider shows whereabouts in my document I am, and if I want to use the slider I have to hover my cursor over it for a few moments before it appears and I can use it.

A minor quibble in such a monumentally useful piece of software, I know, and maybe I’m over sensitive. But it does niggle.
