Ah, I think you have a pretty unique situation. Most people want the leds
to keep functioning even when an other screen is in front. Or well
actually there are not many people that run multiple clients ;)

But why don't you only send the "output" commands when the server has
send you a "listening" and stop doing that when it has sent "ignoring" ?
That way the client in the front is the only one controlling the leds...
