Is it possible to have a script constantly running without it "freezing" filemaker?

Case in point: Could I write a script that constantly poles the size and position of a window so that regardless of what I may be doing in the other window it stays in a specific place and size? I've tried this already but it seems to "Freeze" filemaker do to the looping inside the script. Am I maybe missing a script step of some sort that keeps this from happaning?

When a script is running or paused, you are stuck in the current window. If you are working in another window, why would you care where the other windows are? Is the other window a navigational tool? Do you need to see both windows at the same time? Give us some more information and we can possibly provide an alternative solution.

I'm not so much looking for a work around as much finding out what is feasible and what is not. I've only been working with filemaker for a little under a year so i appreciate your patience as well as everyone elses on the forum.
