    What do you mean by "to inactive"? Do you mean to have the second frame be modal and keep control until it is closed?

    Use a JDialog that is modal instead of a second frame.

    Have you tried putting your code into a JDialog? What problems are you having?

    closed the notepad without saving the data
    There are listeners you can use to catch a user closing a window.
