Windows 7: Is it possible to make secondary window sound play?

Is it possible to make secondary window sound play?

Kinda of a weird question I know but I play OnLive ALOT in fact I run a website for it here: ** LINK REMOVED ** (shamless plug) and I have a two Monitor setup.

When I put OnLive in the second windows I hear the sound and voice fine in windowed mode. However if I focus on another application word etc, or the browser the sound stops from the game. Is there any way to allow the sound and mic to still work from the non-active/focused on window???

Tried that it still does not allow me to hear any sound from the application once I un-focus on it.

Anyone else have any ideas?
