Why not just close it?  In Access VBA...

DoCmd.OpenForm "Your Second Form Name"
DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.Name

Another option would be to open the second form with Modal=True, which would mean the user couldn't set the focus off of that second form until they close it.

docmd.OpenForm "Your Second Form Name",acNormal,,,,acDialog
