hi friends,

I m facing very strange behaviour of pb.I m working with pb6.5 (build 444) on windows2000 (service pack 4 installed). I created one test application in which only one window object is there. And following scripts i have written in the application

OPEN EVENT:
open(w_idle_test)
idle(5)

IDLE EVENT:
halt close

now running the application it opens window w_idle_test and starts timer for the idle event to fire.so after 5 seconds it should close the application if the appln is idle.
But it's not happening !!!! B'coz my mouse is on the window. If i will remove my mouse from the window area to anywhere else, it will execute the idle event after 5 seconds idle time. It's really strange. It took 2 hours to find out the reason and accedently i come to know about the reason. Is It Bug ? OR any configuration settings in windows2000.
