I try to stay in the Metro environment as much as possible. I'm a fairly heavy user of Skype's chat, and am signed into several group chats that are active every day. It's stupid annoying lately though that Skype doesn't update on my SP3 or notify me of new messages (because it's not updating!) in the background, unless I actually switch to the Skype app, then it sits for a second and then updates. I do remember that once upon a time I would be doing something else and the Skype notification would pop up in the upper right corner when a new message came, but not for a long time now. I've gone into Settings in Skype and made sure notifications were turned on, etc. You guys have any other ideas?
