Windows 7: Dual Screen Gaming - Tabbing out takes long time

Dual Screen Gaming - Tabbing out takes long time

I recently bought an extra monitor so I could have play games on one screen while having other stuff on the other such as skype and teamspeak so I could see messages etc. without tabbing out. One of my monitors is 1440p 60hz and other 1080p 144hz so I use the 1440p primarily for gaming but the other for 3D gaming with NVidia 3D vision. I have two 780GTX GC running SLI with both monitors plugged into the main card.

The problem I'm having when playing games is that they take an incredibly long time to initialize on the screen when I load them full screen and the same happens when I tab out and sometimes I have to keep tabbing along the windows to tab out properly. This isn't an issue I used to get or have when I just change the settings to one monitor and switch the other off. I was wondering if anyone has had any similar issues with dual monitors or had any answers.

Thank you in advance for any replies.
