Windows 7: Force popup balloons and notificaitons to stay open until user closes

Force popup balloons and notificaitons to stay open until user closes

I am wondering if there is a way to make a popup for an application (balloon, notification, etc) from the system tray to stay open until the user manually closes it? I know that you can adjust the timing of how long they stay up but we have an application that we want a popup indicating a new communication to stay open on the desktop until the user closes it. Any ideas? Thanks for any help.

You can set them to stay open (until user clicks close) for a maximum of 136 years. I suppose that's long enough.

Notifications - Change How Long to Stay Open

Option Two = Step 6

Time in seconds. For 136 years try 4294967295 seconds.

Open Box - or STAY AWAY!
Greetings, I am looking @ some motherboards and other items on Newegg and they sometimes have items discounted since they are classed as "open box." Should I run away quickly from any open box items, or would it be okay to purchase an item like that? Thanks for your thoughts. :)
