Add to that, a "rewind to previous phase" button.

I'm always forgetting to move a unit or transport and don't notice it until the end of the deployment and disclosure phases. When that happens I have to click rewind until I get back to the movement phase. That can be a lot of clicking.

On my computer it plays a sound and begins to blink the program icon when a new turn is received.

It would be useful feature... I have the same problem quite often.

Number 1 can be achieved by going into Multiplayer, loading your profile, then minimising Massive Assault (if you're in fullscreen, hit the Windows key). It will play the "disclosed" sound and blink when a new turn is received. I agree that there needs to be some sort of "official" method, like a minimise icon in the corner that does this for you.

Not only that, but minimising is a rather resource hungry way to do it.

I second this. Perhaps Shift+Backspace?

Frankly speaking I've been thinking about rewinding a whole phase...
Since I also play MA(N) I feel myself not comfortable to rewind a lot of actions, one by one. Ok, I will make such a feature.
