    I'm causing a Fetch mirror document to open (via a shell script) on a regular interval, and each time Fetch insists on coming to the foreground. Is there any way I can suppress this behavior and let Fetch do its thing while remaining hidden?

    Mac OS 10.0.2
    Fetch 4.0

    I think it's the Finder that is bringing Fetch to the front, and I don't know of a way around that. I will look into this and see what I can do.

    Have you found a way around this? This is preventing me from being able to run my script in the background continuously, as Fetch then continually pops to the foreground.

    You can add this snippet whenever you want to make sure Fetch is not in front:

    tell application "Finder"
    set frontmost of process "Fetch 4.0" to false
    end tell

    or you can hide Fetch this way:

    tell application "Finder"
    set visible of process "Fetch 4.0" to false
    end tell

    I hope that helps,
