Alarms - ACT 2010 and Windows 7

I just upgraded to Windows 7 and have a problem with alarms.  Now, they do not pop up on the screen unless I'm in ACT.  If I'm in any other program, I am not notified.  BTW, for personal preferences, I have sounds turned off, so that is not an option.


Am I missing something?  Any help is appreciated?


On another note, can ACT 2010 be run on a netbook?

Did you have this issue in your previous O/S (XP or Vista I assume). Do you the alarm window mininmized in the taskbar? This may a Windows 7 setting with the way popup windows are handled.


I regards to netbooks, I am not aware of any testing we have done on netbooks, but if the machine has a fully functional version of a supported operating system, then there is no reason why ACT! shouldn't work on it.
