Usually, I just click on the Lubuntu Menu icon (far left of the 
task-bar), and the menu will disappear on the first (or second) try.

I just tried it (adding PulseAudio Volume Control to the desktop), and 
it worked that way.  I'm using 14.04.

However, in experimenting more with this, I ended up with the first menu 
staying there, without ever going away - regardless what I did.

In that state I could move the mouse-pointer around and click on things, 
but nothing would respond - even the shut-down menu, or switching to 
another workspace.

The CPU indicator in the taskbar showed no above normal activity, but my 
system was essentially hung, and the ONLY way I could get out of it, was 
by turning off the power.

This is apparently a very dangerous thing to experiment with...
