apps pop open when moved to the side of the screen.

I have been searching for an answer to this but have not found a good answer. When I move an application over to the slide of the screen on Windows 7 x64 bit OS (Lenovo laptop), and I move my mouse back over to the application the application pops out (to the right or left of the screen the open application). Is there a way to disable this? This does not happen on my Dell Desktop only on my Lenovo laptop and I cant figure out how to disable this feature.

Wait, you want to not have the application snap to the side or don't want the application to snap off from the side after you snapped it? I'm confused.

thanks for the reply, I do not want the application to snap back once i place my mouse over the application. Do you know how to prevent this from occurring?

Other then not using that broken application? I guess it is a "feature" of that application.
