It's usually caused by another program opening check task manager.

the button or your keyboard which has the windows logo(3rd from left, bottom row)on can make that happen

Usually this is because some program, Windows or otherwise, had a pop-up that boots it to the front of the screen. E.G Windows update, or an Itunes error.

Next time it minimizes, look at what programs you have running and see if anything popped up. Try to rectify what caused it.

Had this issue when MPCHC was changing file in playlist. There was no notifications or pop-ups. It simply wasn't doing anything, just minimized fullscreen apps for god knows what reason. But that was easy to find out (song changes = app minimizes. Easy one).
So yeap, it is software that moves focus (or takes mouse, so click registered out of app and l4d loses focus), but it might not be that obvious - there might be no pop-ups - he'd probably notice if there were any.

Ah, that's strange. I've never seen the mouse focus change without a pop-up. I'll keep that in mind.
