MIDI mapping a windows focus. Possible?

I love my MIDI mapped and automapped control surfaces! But I still have to mouse around to get focus on a window before Automap kicks in. Is there a way to MIDI map the focus of a window (say an Instrument Rack) so it becomes active, and thus automapped, at the press of a single button?

Example: Track one is currently active. I press a button on my Launchpad that activates track four, and puts the focus on one of the several Instrument Racks on that track. Now my automapping Nocturne controls that rack.

    Same problem still here.

    Some automapped plugins (especially Spectrasonics VST and AU) can only be controlled when the GUI is visible.

    Updated to OSX Lion, Automap and Live to the latest versions incl beta and no solution.

    Had opened Ableton and Novation support ticket one year ago without a satisfying answer until now.

    Yes you can use Midistroke app for mac... It's really easy to use and you just have to keep it open while running Live.

    Ctlr + m / cmd + m and then select the title bar of the device, twiddle a knob/button etc & it should do the trick
