Game minimizes to desktop

So my game keeps minimizing to desktop. It's been doing that a long time but today, while in a DD, three jucy nice bbs are going to emerge on the other side of an island I am keeping between us. I will be able to drop my torps and stay in cover - it's going to be epic! Just gotta turn a little to line up my torps. Voila - desktop. Get back into the game - I am stuck on an island, thre BBs come around the corner at secondary range - OH LOOK! a Minekaze - all three open up on me. Yeah did not go so well... It's really annoying.

 

So - I know this have been posted in wot and whatnot with the answer - don't press the windows key, or tap shift five times etc. Well I don't - and it still happens. I run full-screen with no option to run full-screen windowed. Why? Why of all the games I have does this game have to randomly go to desktop?! And even IF I hit the windows key - so what? No other game I have minimizes if I do! NONE! That is actually the reason I prefer running games in full-screen windowed mode. Then I can just hit the windows-key. Do what I need to do with the game in the background (no alt-tab mess) and go right back into the action.

 

Please fix it - whatever it is.

I've got the same problem. The game simply minimizes randomly, for some time. Just now was very annoying, as it also decided to freeze while being minimized. Logged in some 30 seconds later, I found a squad of enemy torpedo bombers happily flying away from my sinking ship.

 

Please fix it.
