So what I did is set up a hot corner on my desktop Mac, the one where I use the Magic Trackpad. To do this, go to System Preferences, then Mission Control. Click on the Hot Corners button, then choose Notification Center from one of the menus; the one for the corner you want to use. So I have it set to the top-right corner, which is logical, as that is where Notification Center lives. I just move my cursor to that corner and the Notification Center sidebar displays. To hide it, I just click elsewhere, or move the cursor to the same corner again.
