I would like to see the Hotlink Manager reopen to the Hotlink Manger window after updating a hotlink source (or at least do this on Teamwork projects).

In our office typically what happens is this:
1. Reserve Hotlink Manager
2. Update source, press "OK"
3. Forget to release Hotlink Manager reservation
4. In 5-10 minutes receive request for Hotlink Manager from coworker

If the Hotlink Manager went back to the window after updating it would be an easy reminder to release the reservation.

A better option would be for the Hotlink manager to be openable without automatically checking the hotlink status which is the frustrating part (having to wait for it to complete before you can reserve/release). I think I've posted a wish to that effect before.

Another option is to open the X-Ref window and release from there - the X-Ref and Hotlink Manager share the same reservation for some odd reason, but it does mean you can reserve / release without waiting for the HLMs to be checked.
