    Anyone know how to stop messages from appearing or stop them from coming on top?

    Alright so while setting up my PC, I remembered reading a thread (cant find it now) where the person set their computer to sleep when the power button was pressed, then to hibernate after being idle for 30 minutes. I did a similar set up to allow me to make quick stops and not have to resume my PC from hibernation. In attempt to stop the PC from hibernating while I'm driving, I scheduled a tack that makes a window appear every 30 minutes. It is set to do this indefinitely and not wake the computer to do it. My issue now is that the message window becomes the active window whenever it occurs. It is less of an annoyance than the computer hibernating while driving, but it is still annoying, and I'm wondering if you guys have any suggestions of how I can stop it from being brought to the top window position. I'm not sure if this will even keep it from hibernating yet because I've not let my computer sit for the duration until hibernation.

    Well I found a program that does what i was looking for, but it is a bit unreliable in the testing, but if anyone else wants to know, it is called deskpins. it puts a thumb tack in the top right corner of the screen which means it is pinned on top. The problem that I've run into a couple times so far is when trying to exit Centrafuse, sometimes the exit menu will not appear as if it were a different window. but it does come up sometimes. ill have to play with it some more to figure out exactly what is causing the issue
