Diablo® III

Much slower FPS in fullscreen Windowed?

Hello, I have a laptop that is capable of playing Diablo 3

Rough specs are i7 3610
8 GB Ram
Nvidia 660m

I have a 1920 x 1080 screen hooked up to my 1920 x 1080 standard laptop monitor

Basically, when I run the game in full screen, it runs fine at 60 fps, but when I try it in full screen windowed, it always drops to around 40 fps and starts to stutter and lagg! I haven't adjusted any of the graphics settings, just changed it from Fullscreen to Windowed (Fullscreen)

I don't understand what's causing this to happen! Any help would be great

im not sure about this but when in full screen windowed the graphics card is displaying everything at the same time, and diablo 3 over top of that. Instead of not having to display windows and all that other stuff when it just has to display d3 in full screen
