    I find it VERY aggravating when I boot my computer in the AM and have to wait a LOOONNNGGG time for the Downloading popup to go away since it has an AlwaysOnTop attribute.
    Would u mind removing that "feature"?

    It's by design. It's supposed to stop you doing anything to Cumulus while it's downloading the logger data. Also, it shouldn't be taking a long time to download the logger data - do you have the Cumulus logger interval and the station logger interval set the same? http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/FAQ#Cumulu ... t_start_up

    I like to progress popup as it tells me it is working/retreaving, but I don't shut down and restart every day nor do I have Cumulus start automatically - and only takes a few seconds whenever I restart Cumulus with the 10-min logger interval (set the same as the Cumulus data log).
