Default Full-screen minimizes

Hi guys. I am having a problem with my PC's, Every hour on the hour Windows XP minimizes whatever I'm doing in full screen OR if my screen saver is on, it will turn off.

How do I find out what is causing this?

It did to me that a long time ago, so it didn't alow me to play games when I wanted, holly cr@p. Do a virus\malware scan or sth. I don't think that anything harm has occured. It also might be keyboard incompartibillity if it is wireless (probably desktop button is executed or sth), try downloading the latest drivers for that. I can't imagine what else could it be. Maybe you should ask someone more expierienced with windows than me, but i would be happy if I helped.
