    I'm sure this is due to me being a new Mac user, but quite often I'll click on an open window and the active window will gray out a bit and another open window will move to be active. I'm not sure what this feature is called, but I'd like to turn it off? Any suggestions? Thanks!

    that's the way Macs work... that's why open windows don't maximize to fill the entire screen like they do on Windows - you want to be able to see at least a little bit of other open windows behind the active one, so you can click on them so they become active.

    If you don't want it to become the active window, why are you clicking on it?

    Leopard improves on multiple window views. Will make it easier to navigate multiple windows and know which window is active.
