If tooltips are active, they tend to pop up on their own.  This can be
disconcerting for menus, but perhaps that's because I'm slightly more
used to the MS-Windows approach.  In that case, tooltips for menus
only popup if you use the "What's this?" command (Shift-F1).  This
"What's this?" command can be applied to any widget on the screen (but
not every widget answers it).

Perhaps you want to think about this approach for menu tooltips?
