Stop 'Messages' box from automatically opening

Hi there!
I like using Kile’s auto-compile feature. The compiling process is interrupted when the user starts typing again. Whenever this happens, the ‘Messages’ box at the bottom left opens permanently to show a warning because of the interrupt. This happens frequently, and is quite distracting. And I would really like not to have this box open on a small laptop screen. Is there a way to stop it from opening automatically?
Thanks a lot!
