Diablo® III

Diablo 3 minimizing itself

game keeps minimizing itself every few seconds its very annoying

it can be fixed if u run game in windowed (fullscreen) mode but it lags like hell for me

and i also don't have any antivirus or programs running in background

Histerix,

Leave the game in fullscreen mode and try rebooting once in selective startup mode and see if it still happens.

Similar happened to me out of nowhere. I do tech support so I had an idea of what to do.
I wrote down the time sit happened and turned out to be always on a 15 minute increment.
Checked event viewer logs and a citrix application I use for work was running. This would check for an update, even though its all behind the scenes, that would cause a minimize..

TheGlow, you are 100% correct that this is usually caused by other applications on the user's computer taking priority. The OP just needs to figure out which application is doing it. It is not an issue with D3 in and of itself.

That means an application that was set to autostart at bootup is the cause for your D3 minimizing. You don't want to keep booting this way, you need to figure out which app it is and take steps to stop it from interfering, usually by removing scheduling for updates or something like that.

Close the game if it's open and then edit your D3Prefs.txt file in your My Documents\Diablo III folder.

Change the line:

DisplayModeWindowMode "0"

to

DisplayModeWindowMode "1"

Restart the game now and it will be in windowed mode.

I just fixed my problem (minimized every 1 minute!!!)
It was the TuneUp Utility, I tried setting it on Turbo Mode and it fixed the problem.

Try finding the application that's causing it - disable or close one at a time

I just turned off my Run in Admin setting and the minimizing seems to have stopped. Hope this helps

Glad I found this,

I use a Citrix Receiver on my PC too and the game keeps Minimizing.

gonna try to turn it off during gaming and see if that helps,

Citrix Receiver caused two problems for me:
1. Diablo 3 would minimize, often
2. Diablo 3 would have really bad latency (or lag if you prefer), unplayably bad

Extremely frustrating.

To work around these problems, I go to Windows Task Manager and kill receiver.exe (cause of problem 1) and redirector.exe (cause of problem 2).

When I need to connect to the office, I just double click the Citrix Receiver application.

When done, I task kill receiver.exe again. redirector.exe does not seem to start with the app, only on boot.

Sometimes, the process concentr.exe remains after a connection to work. I then also have to process kill this.
