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.
