I'd like it so that when the i3 bar is in hide mode the SIGSTOP and SiGCONT signals are NOT sent. I want the bar to continue processing.

I found a good lead which shows a function in child.c that runs and sends SIGSTOP.

Unfortunatly I found no better solution then just to comment out the lines in ./i3bar/src/child.c that call the stop and continue functions. Then I backed up to the ./i3bar directory and ran

sudo make install

it just replaced my current i3 bar with the modified one without the sigstops that I made.
