    I filed a bug about the 'stealing focus' several days ago as it applies to the ZASS/Vista beta version (7.1), and also mentioned that it applies to the current 'shipping' version (7.0).
    The stealing focus prevents my monitor from going into power saving mode (set to power down after 1 hour of inactivity). I tested this several ways and was able to pin down the cause...it's due to the hourly updates.
    As usual...I've heard nothing back from the developers as to whether they can repro it or not.

    Yes...that can be done (if needed)...but it's just a work-around. This issue needs to be fixed.

    I'm not sure which 'feature' you're referring to.
    I don't care so much about it updating every hour...
    My complaint (as I mentioned in an earlier post, and what I'm referring to when I say it needs to be fixed) is the problem of it stealing focus when it updates.
    I don't consider 'stealing focus' a &quot;feature&quot;

    I'm confused as to that link you just provided... ( http://forums.zonealarm.com/zonelabs...ssage.id=42959
    )
    Unless I'm missing something...How does that relate to the issue of the updates stealing focus?
