ok do this...
on your popup

window.opener.window.location = '/sample/index.php';

and use this to open popup
function openStaticPopup() {
	$.openPopupLayer({
	name: "mySecondPopup",
	width: 550,
	target: "myHiddenDiv",
});

The reason is very clear; when the page loads it is redirected instantly... You could do one thing, on the page load show the popup... and on the popup close event redirect the page.

problem with that solution hainkurt is that it also closes the popup which i want to keep on top and let the client close the popup. i am using the code below which is called from this:

onload="openStaticPopup()"

many thanks
function openStaticPopup() {
	$.openPopupLayer({
	name: "mySecondPopup",
	width: 550,
	target: "myHiddenDiv",
	success: function() {
								window.location = '/sample/index.php';
								}
				});
