Window / Detect the mouse leaving the window

Well, this game would mostly be played while doing something else at the same time. Like when you're chatting but in between conversation you play some puzzles.

So only allowing full-screen or locking the mouse to the window would annoy players a lot, I think ^^.

This is something that I'll probably think about for SFML 2.

That's nice ^^.

For now, I'll make the game deselect a block as soon as it collides with the puzzle's border (not really fair, because they might accidentally hit the border when not wanting to place the block near it, but it's a fix for now).

Thank you for your help!

I am making a puzzle game in which you drag stones with your mouse.
After letting several users test-play the game, I've noticed they all have this urge to click a stone, just sweep the mouse in the direction they want it to move and then release the button.
While doing this, very often the mouse moves outside of the window and the button is released there. This gets to the point where it ruins the gameplay and players get agitated.

When I googled on this problem I came upon this thread:

Is there really no way I could check for the mouse to leave the window? Or does anyone have a different solution to my problem?

Thank you in advance,
