    you can drag them around by holding the command key... the battery can be hidden by unchecking show battery status in menu bar under energy saver preferences

    Apple > System Preferences > Energy Saver > Un-check "Show battery status in the menu bar"

    It's the Menu Bar, not the Status Bar.
    Holding the Command key will allow you to move some of the icons, but not all.
    Many icons, such as the battery icon, can be removed by holding the Command key and dragging them off the Menu Bar.
    If you hold the Option key while clicking the AirPort icon, it will give more details.

    Thx for correcting me :)

    Option key is not giving me any extra options... apart from what you usually get by clicking on the icon.....

    How do I set my avatar? from the Forum FAQ (on the toolbar near the top of this page: FAQ/Rules)
    You're holding the Option key while clicking the AirPort icon?

    I'm not sure why it's not working for you, but this is what it should show:
    Without the Option Key:
    without.PNG
    With the Option Key:
    with.PNG

    Taking Screenshots in Mac OS X
    No, the Option-click works on Leopard and Snow Leopard. It's a built-in function.
