    It happens when the processor runs out of cache memory. If the game is running less than full screen, say 1/2 screen size, or 3/4 screen size, it may not minimize. If there is a quad core processor with much more cache then it probably would not minimize. It just depends on how much process the system can run without the processor going 100%. As soon as it hits 100% it dumps the video. It happens on single screen setups too. There's little that can be done without upgrading the motherboard and processor.
