Toggle position fixed depending on scroll position

I have the following code which fixes the position of a menu at the point that it is going to scroll off the top of the page.

$(function () {
    var msie6 = $.browser == 'msie' && $.browser.version < 7;
    if (!msie6) {
    var top = $('.menu').offset().top - parseFloat($('.menu').css('margin-top').replace(/auto/, 0));
    $(window).scroll(function (event) {
    var y = $(this).scrollTop();
    if (y >= top) {
    $('.menu').addClass('fixed');
    } else {
    $('.menu').removeClass('fixed');
    }
    });
    }
}); 

css

.container {
    width:400px; 
    margin:auto;
}

.header {
    background-color:#096; 
    height:150px;
}

.fixed {
    position:fixed;
    top:0px;
    left:50%;
    margin-left:50px;
}

.bodyContainer {
    overflow:hidden;
}

.menu {
    float:right; 
    width:150px; 
    height:250px; 
    background-color:#F00;
}

.bodyCopy {
    float:left; 
    width:250px; 
    height:1000px;
}

.footer {
    background-color:#096; 
    height:250px;
}

HTML

<div class="container">

<div class="header">
    <p>Test Header</p>
</div>

<div class="bodyContainer">

    <div class="menu">
        <p>test</p>
    </div>

    <div class="bodyCopy">
        <p>test</p>
    </div>

</div>


<div class="footer">
    <p>Test Footer</p>
</div>

What I now want to do is make it start scrolling again when the user reaches the bottom of the page (so that it does not cover the footer in the page).

var top = $('.menu').offset().top - parseFloat($('.menu').css('margin-top').replace(/auto/, 0));
var _height = $('.menu').height();
$(window).scroll(function(event) {
    var y = $(this).scrollTop();
    var z = $('.footer').offset().top;
    if (y >= top && (y+_height) < z) {
        $('.menu').addClass('fixed');
    } else {
        $('.menu').removeClass('fixed');
    }
});

If you want the menu to simply stay where it is when it reaches the footer you'll need to add more logic to append it into the DOM:

var msie6 = $.browser == 'msie' && $.browser.version < 7;
if (!msie6) {
    var top = $('.menu').offset().top - parseFloat($('.menu').css('margin-top').replace(/auto/, 0));
    var _height = $('.menu').height();
    var _original_top = $('.menu').offset().top;
    $(window).scroll(function(event) {
        var y = $(this).scrollTop();
        var z = $('.footer').offset().top;
        if (y >= top && (y + _height) < z) {
            $('.menu').insertBefore($('.bodyCopy')).removeClass('stuck-bottom').addClass('fixed');
        } else {
            if ((y + _height) >= z) {
                $('#menu').insertBefore($('.footer')).removeClass('fixed').addClass('stuck-bottom');
            }
            else $('.menu').insertBefore($('.bodyCopy')).removeClass('stuck-bottom').removeClass('fixed');
        }
    });
}

I'm sure there's a more elegant way to do this. Play around :) http://jsfiddle.net/AlienWebguy/CV3UA/2/
