When combining a lot of files (word, ppx, pdf, etc) into 1 pdf file, after every seperate file from te list is converted the Acrobat windows becomes te active window. This is pretty annoying when multitasking. How can i stop this behaviour and make Acrobat perform this task in the background??

This is on Windows 7 64bit

That has nothing to do with it. Acrobat is NOT meant to be used as a background service.

AFAIK, Adobe doesn't offer any tool that will do that, except maybe some web-based services, like the PDF Pack.

Ok.. Guess that's why they call it 'Pro' right? Any idea of tools that can do this for us?

Not as a background service, i agree. But this is just bad design. Its intended for professional users. User who need to make money with this. We don't make money watching software perform it's tasks.

Thanks for your time! Guess we have to install an extra pc to make this work.

Hello people from five years ago, this is the only thread I've found on this topic. For the past couple years mine had been doing this, right up until last week. I'd always assumed that's just how it was.
