The graying out is Sugar's way of telling you that you'll get a fresh
instance instead of reopening the most recent. If you are seeing gray,
then it should work. Perhaps the children are releasing the Alt key
Alternatively, right click brings up the hover menu immediately. At
the bottom of the hover menu for activities on the Home View is the
option to open a new instance.
