Windows minimizes everything!

Most programs or games I use if I walk away or leave it untended long enough windows returns to the desktop if I'm in full screen mode. Its even done it a few times while I was playing certain games Warcraft 3 in specific if that helps. I dont know why this would happen. I cant think of anything that would be taking away the attention.
