hi,

look at the result of C-h b (runs the command describe-bindings).

you will find

  C-x o runs the command other-window

there is also the command

  bury-buffer is an interactive built-in function.
  (bury-buffer &optional BUFFER)

  Put BUFFER at the end of the list of all buffers.
  There it is the least likely candidate for `other-buffer' to return;
  thus, the least likely buffer for M-x switch-to-buffer to select by default.
  If BUFFER is nil or omitted, bury the current buffer.
  Also, if BUFFER is nil or omitted, remove the current buffer from the
  selected window if it is displayed there.

you may bind it to key of your choice.

have fun

martin
