    I'm sure this is going to be perceived as yet another attempt on my part to convince the author to alter the way his program interacts with the Windows desktop.

    I've noticed that whenever LNS pops up a window to alert me to a program attempting to access the internet, dismissing that window leaves LNS with focus, even though there's no visible window.

    My Logitech G7 Laser Mouse's thumb key is programmed to "close" the window that has focus. If I press this button immediately after dismissing a LNS popup window, I get the prompt from LNS to confirm minimizing or terminating the application.

    The most annoying occurrence of this behavior happened a few minutes ago, when I dismissed an alert that Adobe Updater was attempting to access the internet. A browser window was topmost, but when I clicked the Close button to (I thought) close the browser window, I was presented with a prompt from LNS to confirm or not terminating itself.

    I clicked on the browser window, and then closed it. At this point another browser window was topmost, but when I clicked the Close button to close THAT window, LNS once again intercepted the call and asked me yet again if I wanted to shut down the application.

    This happened *4* times with 4 different windows, yet at no time was there a LNS window visible on the desktop.

    So there were a total of *4* extra mouse clicks required before LNS stopped asking me if I wanted to terminate the program.

    Very annoying...

    Yes, I agree Look 'n' Stop should not keep the focus when it is minimized.
    I will try to fix that.
