Michael is using the "/b" command line switch in Stata for Windows
to invoke batch mode.  If Michael uses "/e" instead, Stata will exit
after running the batch job and the dialog will not be displayed.

For more information, see section [GSW] C.6 Stata batch mode in
the Getting Started with Stata for Windows manual.  We have also
recently updated a FAQ on the Stata web site with details about
running Stata for Windows in batch mode, including tips for setting
the starting directory and automating batch jobs using the Windows
Task Scheduler:
