Without knowing precisely what effect you are trying to achieve, this 
suggestion might be useless...

However, have you investigated using the 'cantSelect' properties of 
objects? If an object has cantSelect set to true, then it acts as if it 
is in browse mode, rather than pointer tool mode. Even if it is not 
useful for your precise use-case, knowing why might help evolve it into 
something more useful in the future.

Warmest Regards,
