I want to keep ConEmu minimized no matter what happens. For example I have the following bat called test.bat:
"timeout.exe /T 10
START test2.bat"

This bat is launched using conemu shortcut that has the following arguments:
"ConEmuPortable.exe /Min /Dir ... /cmd test.bat"

The problem is that when it reaches START test2.bat, ConEmu is brought to foreground instead of being kept minimized.

How can I prevent this?

I've tried the following:
In Settings-Startup-Tasks:
I've used :b for {cmd} like this:
"cmd -new_console:bC:cmd.exe"

but nothing has changed.

Why do you talking about {cmd} task? It is not used in your batches.

Running ConEmuPortable.exe implies activation of active instance. Do you really need that? Have strong doubt...

Use http://ConEmu.GitHub.io/en/NewConsole.html

I've used the following in test.bat
""%windir%\system32\timeout.exe" /T 5
ConEmu /cmd test2.bat -new_console:b"

Still no success, the windows goes to foreground when the tab is created.

Posted wiki page shows proper usage of -new_console switch. Why do you still run ConEmu.exe?

timeout /T 5­
cmd /c test2.bat -new_console:b

I've updated as you said, but it still brings ConEmu to foreground.

Can I send a clean close/quit/exit cmd to conemu from a bat file?

Not sure what do you mean. Close ConEmu?
