If I attempt to alt-tab out of the game at any point, I see the windows mouse, but the game is still up in the foreground (but it's paused, like it looks frozen). I have to then use the task manager to force minimize it, but if I click anywhere on my screen, it puts me back into the game.

Note: This only started in 88279, just tested 88251 and alt-tabbing functionality works great.

Cannot repro.

For me this only happens on a receiving screen.

Yes, I remember that, but it always used to happen within the Receiving screen, not only since latest beta.

For me, if I'm on beta 88279, I just attempt to alt-tab and it happens. Only on beta 88279 and it doesn't happen in any other games (DirectX, OpenGL)

Related to any mods you load maybe, since you checked the box? Maybe try without?

No problems here (I have a 560ti too), aka cannot reproduce.
No matter if I start the vanilla game or tons of addons with whatever OA version.
ALT-Tab works like a charm (and much better than in other games).

I can confirm, that this issue happens periodically all the time, at least for me, but I don't know at what circumstances. It is not consistent and I can't imagine how to reproduce. If it happens I just try to alt-tab back and forth several times until it works.
