[Mono-winforms-list] Changing a background image on a button and minimising to the system tray

I'm after a platform-neutral solution here and Google doesn't want to
play nice :-(

I have some background images on a couple of winform buttons (it's for
an early learning package) and periodically they need to change - for
example, if you click on the sun, a timer clicks in and after a set
amount of time, the button image turns to the moon and the timer stops.

The timer works, the button initially has the sun on it. However, I
can't get the image to change to the moon.

I've currently got this 

	sun.Enabled = true;
	sun.BackgroundImage =
	sun.BackgroundImage =

As this is not on the parent, but a child window, I'm getting a problem
in that resources.GetObject cannot be found. I would have thought that
resources would have been something globally available!

(the app currently has 3 forms - AboutBox, Form1 and Form2 - the sun
button is on Form2).

Any idea what I'm missing here?

Secondly, is there a platform neutral method of minimising a winform to
the system tray?
