help with Amiga Shell - quiting shell windows properly
Hi, So I got this app called NASP (it's a sort of sample player DJ tool,where you smash the function keys and it plays samples)
I'm having trouble closing nasp lists (lists are custom lists of 10 samples you make your self)

I bring up a nasp list via toolsdaemon, it's CLI mode, and the argument is something like (Cli) "HDD:NASPv1.11/NASP" dubsiren"
and then a hotkey assigned to ie (ie 1)

this works, it bring up a tools output window, I think it's a shell window
So I want to close it to bring up another list say, If I click on the close gadget (top left) it's all good, it terminates properly. but I want to use this WITHOUT a mouse!
So I go for control + \ which closes the shell window just fine
HOWEVER (and here's the problem) the list (or mabye just sample memory) hangs in the background! even thought the window has clearly disapeared, the samples from the previous list are still present in memory which is no good.

One thing I discovered today though, was that if I click on the window first (anywhere in the window) to sort of activate it to the top level, THEN hit control + \ it disposes of it properly.
How can I get the window to be active without using a mouse?
or just, how can I terminate it properly. ???

Partial workaround: in case you didn't know, you can control the mouse pointer with the keyboard. Hold Left Amiga and use the arrow keys to move. Hold Shift to speed up movement. Press Left Amiga + Left Alt for a left click, Right Amiga + Right Alt for a right click. Not quite as quick as a hotkey, but if you're doing a DJ set you don't need to bring a mouse with you.

Only other things I can think of are to check the documentation (full package is on Aminet in case you only have a partial version from elsewhere) or to try a CON: replacement with more options.

This is really just an idea; probably won't solve your problem but...

What if you add "HDD:NASPv1.11/NASP" dubsiren" to a script file and then from CLI:


Run <script>
