What would you call this?

I'd like a feature that shuts VDM down when you open a certain program, and then opens it back up when the program is closed (maybe a desktop shortcut?). I play MAME, and I have the "switch desktop" hotkeys mapped to the ctrl key which is used for player 1 button 1, and the number pad keys which are mapped to player 1 movement. I have some trouble when I try to play a game, as my computer thinks I'm changing desktops (MAME still shows on the screen though) instead of attacking (or whatever) and moving. I currently have to shut VDM down manually, open my MAME frontend manually, and then when I'm done playing, close my frontend (this I CAN/WILL do on my own:D No worries.), and reopen VDM manually.

Man, this was a long post, but I needed to explain it enough (maybe too much?).

Rather than closing and reopening VVDM every time you play, just right-click the icon and uncheck "Hotkeys" which disables all hotkeys. Therefore you don't have to loose your organization.
