I don't think this is possible with standard R graphics devices.  Have 
you taken a look at the 'tkrplot' package; if you produce a tcltk window 
with an R graphics device embedded, instead of opening/closing raw R 
graphics devices, perhaps you could gain more control over the 
opening/closing of the window (?)
