Some applications may grab the mouse or keyboard. When this happens, you can't use TotalView (or any other application). Here are three solutions: Using your mouse and your window manager, iconify the windows of the application that grabbed the keyboard. Use VNC to set up another logical display for TotalView or your application, it doesn't matter which, so that the grabs don't affect TotalView. Use a rootless PC X-server like Exceed in native window-management mode. This runs the window manager within Microsoft Windows instead of X.
