Thanks for your kind reply. I just still get distracted by it and
am somehow prompted to click it away, furthermore it always covers
qjackctls main window, which happens to happily live in my bottom

Thank you! Perhaps a shorter timeout can already solve the thing for me.
Did you set it explicitely or are the 5 seconds you mention a system
