Sometimes when I alt-tab between applications, the application will just be a white screen. This has happened with terminal and with firefox. I can fix the problem and get the program to render by maximizing or minimizing it.

I am using Unity-3D and my graphics cards is a GeForce GTX 460.

Any ideas? Thanks.
