Windows 7: Ctrl-Alt-s does not type anymore (US International keyboard layout)

Ctrl-Alt-s does not type anymore (US International keyboard layout)

In Windows 7 I still use the US International keyboard settings, because I often type in English, German, French, Italian and some other languages.

The settings still work - characters like , etc. are still within easy reach. But with one exception: The German 'sharp S', the sign, doesn't work.

The Ctrl-Alt-S or AltGr-S combination that is supposed to make , now deactives the window I'm typing in. It will still be full screen but not active. It is not a feature of one program only because it happens both in Firefox and in Open Office.

So it looks like Ctrl-Alt-S is a Windows shortcut for something, but for what? And how do I disable it or make sure my keyboard settings override it?
