I can alt-tab out fine and dandy. Lately, I've been noticing that on certain programs it stays running in the background, rather than just minimising (maybe something I've done, rather than the game) - but I can still run FireFox and MSN convos over it just fine.

In fact, having it in the background while doing so is quite handy - as it means I can chat on MSN while travelling between systems. :p

The game doesn't really allow you to get stuck into doing anything else while you're playing, anyway though. If you're idle for more than 15 minutes, you get booted. You're just as well actually just closing down the game and doing work if you need to do it.
