set the noEvents of <shape> to <boolean> Applies to shapes
NoEvents is a shape property that, when true, causes a shape to ignore mouse events as if the object were hidden. Mouse messages are sent to the object immediately beneath the shape, if any. If noEvents is true, a shape will not be highlighted automatically, even if the shape's autoHilite property is true.

Click on the shape again. The computer does not respond with a beep because the noEvents property has prevented the shape from receiving the mouseUp message.
