It's matter of setting window rules in compiz config setting manager, but I don't know what awn applet dialogs are known by in compiz. You might have a better chance getting an answer for this over in the official AWN forums since a lot more people will see it. Here's the link:

Through a lil' trial and error, I figured out a way to customize the compiz animation for a few awn applets (terminal, stacks, etc.). Go to CCSM (Compiz Config Settings Manager) -> Animations -> Open/Close. You need to add a new Window Matching rule. Click on 'New', set effect to 'None' and paste the following (single line) in the 'Window Match' field (for stacks applet):

( & ((type=Normal | Unknown) | name=sun-awt-X11-XFramePeer | name=sun-awt-X11-XDialogPeer) & !(role=toolTipTip | role=qtooltip_label) & !(type=Normal & override_redirect=1) & !(name=gnome-screensaver)

Stuff after '( &' just matches a generic regular window, so don't worry about that. Personally I have the Zoom animation with a delay of 400 for both Open n Close so the stack has a nice spring like open/close effect.

Can you help with this problem?
