Running one VB6 form while a timer on another form is executing

I have a form in a vb6 program that runs a timer every 10 seconds.  I would like to have that work in the background while I work on another module.  If I open another form in non-modal, can I do work on that form without the script from the timer running on the other form interfering?  It seems like that does NOT work with a modal form.

Thank you!
