when i play a fullscreen game, after a while it goes out of fullscreen for a little while. fps players, you know this means overkill!

Are you running any desktop effects (i.e. Compiz-Fusion)

Can you try disabling compiz when running the game to see if it does it again :) I've found some games don't like running when compiz is running

There are two solutions for this. Try one of these:

1. Start Advanced Compiz Settings and disable "Unredirect Fullscreen Windows" in "General Options --> General".
2. Second solution is here http://ph.ubuntuforums.com/showpost....2&postcount=10
