I really like the lock application focus feature that allows me to lock my full screen videos to play on one monitor while working in other apps on another monitor without the full screen video app falling out of full screen mode. But, as with the Lock Mouse feature that was recently added as a startup feature, I would also like to be able to lock application focus on window startup instead of having to hit the hotkey each time to initiate the lock  application focus feature. Could this feature be added to the startup options as well?

Dear Nicolas,

Yes, it could. Simply we haven't such requests. I added your wish to our base. We'll try to include it before the release version.

Nick, the requested feature has been added in the just released 2nd hotfix update for beta 2. Welcome to test! :)

This is an awesome idea, I use it a ton for games. That'd be great if there were a titlebar button toggle for it though. :D

Arthur, why you don't like the hotkey (Ctrl-Alt-Shift-I by default)?

Because computing is about the easiest solution to a problem, be it a trivial and stupid solution. Remembering keyboard shortcuts is a hassle, whereas pressing a button on the titlebar is a lot easier. If you've seen most of my suggestions, they're incredibly cosmetic, but they're also what's best for the common end user who is, for the most part, ignorant of such things like keyboard shortcuts.

Arthur, thank you for explaining your point - it sounds reasonable.

Could you suggest an icon for such title button?

Thanks for adding the Ignore Deactivation feature to the window startup options. However, I'm still having some trouble with it.

On monitor 2, I have a full screen video playing while I am busy with other tasks on monitor 1. If I happen to drag a window partially onto monitor 2, it causes the video to fall out of full screen mode. Is this a bug or just a limitation of the Ignore Deactivation feature?

I just noticed another problem. When I have Ignore Deactivation set with Windows Media Player (v12), none of the controls on the control bar will work including seek, pause, stop, volume, etc. After disabling Ignore Deactivation and restarting Windows Media Player, the controls function as expected.
