Background Applet?

Is it possible to run one applet on top of another on a page?  I have two applets:

1.  A grid applet that interacts with a database
2.  A listener applet that runs a timer, which resets on mouse movement (thanks to the folks that helped me here with that yeterday).

I would like the listener to run in the background of the page, and the grid applet to be on top of it...  basically, I want the timer to reset whenever the mouse moves on the page, not just when it's over the listener applet.  Is this possible?

Unfortunately, I can't modify the grid applet in any way as it's not our code.  Any suggestions?

actually I take that back, problem you have is with the mouse listener.
you cannot achive that easily, what you would need to do is write an applet that could run another applet inside it. Not a simple exercise.

objects,

LOL I was afraid of an answer like that.  I'm starting to think this is a lost cause.  I'm not sure what else I can do to accomplish it.
