all the RATEs to none.
view/new main-box: make face [size: 300x300]
main-box/pane: layout [
box rate 10
feel [engage: func [f a e] [probe join "box " random 6]] with [
pane: layout [
sl: slider rate 10
feel [engage: func [f a e] [probe join "slider " random 6]]
hide main-box/pane ;try to comment this line :)
main-box/pane: layout [text "no slider, no box :)"]

Holger said looong time ago: "For removing timeouts without hiding a face ?
The solution is probably something like "face/changes: 'timeout show face"
in the next version. We are already using face/changes in some other places
