Snappy goes to sleep

Hi all. This is my first post to the group, so please forgive me if
this is
a redundant question. I'm trying to kludge together the Snappy preview
window with a shareware (freeware?) program called CUdoodle to make it
work with
CUseeme (or Microsoft's Netmeeting)? The trouble is the Snappy has a
powersaving
feature which is meant to make the battery last longer. It makes the
preview window
shut off, or into a "sleep" mode after about a minute or so.

You can defeat the Snappy "sleep" mode (to a degree) by making this
change to the Snappy.ini file

Powersaver=False

This will keep the preview mode from sleeping as long as the preview
window is the active window on your screen. The part of the problem I
haven't worked out is how to keep the preview window from going into
sleep mode when I'm in another window, (say the chat window). Does
anyone know a work around for this? I have the Snappy version 1.0
software

Also, for anyone else trying this, supposedly you get more reliable
operation from the Snappy preview window if you set:

Showprogress=False

TIA,

Matt
