    I think the unfocused MediaPortal window throttles down animation speed, to save CPU time (from what I recall). It may not be desired for some users to keep full speed, so this should at least be an optional fix.

    So do I.
    But this patch smoothes the animation only when "Keep on top" option is on, but the focus was lost.
    This combo is possible only if the new option "Keep the focus" is set off. Otherwise such window is constatntly refocused and always eats the CPU. So, I don't see any extra CPU time losts.

    Just want to say thanks for doing this - the idea is actually pretty smart.

    Only having one PC for general purposes and at the same time using as Home Entertainment center

    Consumes less power
    Less OS Maintenace
    Only need 1 Windows license

    Great work, guys
