I've been having this issue a very long time now, but it just got annoying enough to try and fix it.

Every time I launch a full-screen game, doesn't matter which game, it runs fine for a while but then within a minute it minimises. Most games handle this fine but BF4 decides that it doesn't want to process my input anymore so I have to restart the game. Every full-screen game does this every time I launch it.

At first I thought it was some video card issue, but I recently switched from AMD to Nvidia and it's still happening. I also tried connecting another mouse and keyboard and even used another network port on my motherboard.

I've also tried the following potential solutions without success:

  • Disable f.lux
  • Disable malwarebytes
  • Enable quiet hours for notifications

I'm running Windows 10 Pro (with the anniversary update) with a GTX 1080 and some 3rd gen i7

  • When this behavior is experienced, check your task manager for a process called wermgr.exe. Does it appear to start and stop frequently? – JaredT Aug 4 '16 at 20:38
  • @jatuttle0 I can't see wermgr.exe in task manager at all. – cascer1 Aug 4 '16 at 20:39
  • Does the problem persist if the game is rendered in windowed-fullscreen mode? – JaredT Aug 4 '16 at 20:41
  • That's weird. :) Does it still happen if you log in as a new/different user? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Aug 4 '16 at 20:49
  • @jatuttle0 it also happens in windowed-fullscreen (borderless) mode :( – cascer1 Aug 4 '16 at 21:24

I'm not sure this is a useful answer for anyone else, but for me the issues stopped after the August 2016 Windows 10 Anniversary update.
