Bringing Window to the front

Our application has just been rolled out to Windows 2000 and Windows XP after previously only being used on Windows NT 4. We are noticing some different behavior in the toFront() method. Previously, our application would popup with its input over the current active window. Now in Windows 2000/XP, the application title bar in the taskbar starts to flash notifying the user that there is some window awaiting their attention and to be given the permission to become active window.
I believe that this is a "feature" of Windows 2000/XP, but I was wondering if there is any other way to have our application windows become the active window, regardless of the application that the user is currently working on.
I agree. Here's the link:
