    OK, simply put I'm sick and tired of other programs running in the background hijacking my current window.

    ie: I start a process in one window that may take awhile, switch to something else to work on... when the background process is done, depending on the program, it will often force itself to the front. VERY frustrating when you're working on something else, then some background task decided "No, I'm going to take you out of that form box your typing in because I'M coming to the front".

    Is there a setting anywhere that can stop background program from hijacking the current window you're working in?
