Set table position to top

My document (book) has text and floats. There is not enough text, so that all floats can be placed before the text finishes. Then pdfLaTeX puts the remaining float right in the middle of an otherwise empty page. This does not look good. Is there a way to position these floats at the top of the page instead in the middle? Placement specifiers are already given [t]. Also combinations of [h,t,!,H] don't help.

write into the preamble:

\renewcommand{\floatpagefraction}{.6}% before: .5 
\renewcommand{\textfraction}{.15} % before: .2 
\renewcommand{\topfraction}{.8}     % before: .7 
\renewcommand{\bottomfraction}{.5}  % before: .3 
\setcounter{topnumber}{3} % before: 2 
\setcounter{bottomnumber}{1} % before: 1 
\setcounter{totalnumber}{5} % before: 3
