You need to put glutPostRedisplay(); somewhere--either in a glut timer or idle function.  This will tell GLUT to call your Display function at the next possible chance.

Oh wait, sorry, I'm brain-dead.  That wasn't your question.  Give me a minute and I'll try to answer it properly.  Sorry!

Could you explain your problem further?  When you pause your mouse over the minimize button, the tooltip appears, and then glut triggers the display function?  Do you not want that to happen, or am I not quite getting your problem?
