By "another window" do you mean other applications, or just other windows within your application?

Maybe the easiest thing would be to have each timer (or a separate one that drives the process) periodically check the global mouse location (via Windows API call) and determine whether it's within your form.

You can write the code in Control's Mouse Move and Form's DeActivate event for Timer2
and Form's mouse move for Timer1
