Open a program, but hide it from the screen

I have an applescript that opens Safari and does some gui-scripting with a webstie. This script is set to run at a certain time of day and when ever it runs, Safari pops up and interupts what I'm already doing. I googled it and found to use "launch" instead of "activate" when I'm telling Safari to open, but it didn't work.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
axls
