Aha. Which window is flashin?
If it is the buddy list, then you can just close it (make sure you have set it to minimize to systray,
I think this is the default).

I'm running 2.6.3

By "In latest (v2.6.x) this can be set in menu Tools / Plugins : Message Notification" you mean I can UNCHECK "Message Notification".  I have ZERO plugins checked.  What I'm describing doesn't appear to be a notification.  It's just a weird flashing that happen randomly throughout the day.

I'll fire up Camtasia and take a video of it next time it happens and send it to you guys :)

David Woolley explanation sounds accurate - this seems like a low level Windowing oddity more than a feature.

		I'm running Pidgin on Windows (XP) - is there a setting/preference to instruct Pidgin to not flash in the Windows taskbar while running?  I'm not really sure why it's flashing exactly, but I'm guessing it's notifying me that one or more buddies just came online.  That's not really useful to me and because I'm using Pidgin to consolidate four different IM networks together, my buddy list is quite large.  So, Pidgin is pretty much flashing constantly all day.
		Pidgin is definitely a keeper if I can figure out how to make it stop flashing, but nothing is jumping out at me from scanning the menu options
		Any tips would be appreciated
		Thanks -kelly
