How to disable 'switch application'

Hi everyone,

 

Long press blackberry keys will pop-up  the 'switch application'  screen in the MainScreen,

 

I want to disable  'switch application'  function in my application. 

 

Can anyone tell me what to do?

 

Thanks!

You don't want to disable this, even if you could (I bet you can't). Why do you want to cripple the user so they cannot multitask and switch applications?

You can't disable it, its built into the OS.

a screensaver does usually go away after you press a key. if you need a password-screen you could use a global modal one i think.
