Before I installed any patches I was able to minimize the game for hours if I wanted to, and it would pop back up without a problem. But ever since I patched the game (1.4 was the first one I installed), it simply wouldn't respond when I tried to pull it back up unless I only had it minimized for less than 10sec or so. I didn't mention it before because I was hoping the 1.5 patch would fix this, but it didn't. Does anyone else have this issue and know of a workaround? It's not a huge deal, but I do frequently minimize the game while playing for various reasons.

Basically, hit ESC and then ~, then alt-tab so that when it brings it back using as few resources as possible. Bar that.... I dunno.
