    Hi all,

    I have this issue where my active window would constantly de-activate at random times. What I mean by this is, the window I'm currently using would act as though I have switched to another window on top of it. It acts like there is a background program running that constantly comes to the front, but I can't seem to find anything. Let me give examples to help illustrate my problem.

    When typing this message, I constantly had to re-click this window as there are times when I can't type on it as it acts like a minimized window, but I haven't clicked/done anything to it.

    When playing a FPS game, the game will suddenly paused acting as though I have switched to another program to the front. I must click an extra time on the game window to continue playing.

    If it's still tough to understand, I'll have to record a video...It's extremely annoying, appreciate all help I can get. Thanks!
