So I just set up a 2nd monitor so I could see my skype and team speak chats while in full screen mode (main display) on DayZ. I know that to access the items on the 2nd screen that i have to minimize or Alt-Tab the game. This is fine, my problem is, the game is now minimizing on its own while I'm in game. It seems to happen consistently and about every 15 to 20 minutes. Any input on how to fix this glitch would be great. My displays are actually TV's, not sure if that could be a problem...

My setup:

Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz
GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
SAPPHIRE 100352OCSR Radeon HD 7950 3GB
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866

Main display: Vizio VX32LHDTV10A
Secondary: Sony NSX-24GT1 (Google TV)

This was never a problem until trying to use 2nd screen.

your display being a tv has got nothing to do with the problem.
all you need to do before you start gaming is to turn of the second monitor using the Windows key +p
you can again turn on the second monitor whenever you need,using the same method.

Only using third-party software.

1. Download Actual Multiple Monitors
2. Run the game and press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I - Ignore Deactivation feature.
3. Press Win+` to move the mouse pointer to another monitor.
4. Enjoy =)
