Lightroom slide show multitasking on second monitor

    Sorry I know this is the PS group but I'm running a slide show in
    Lightroom on a second monitor and it worked for a while, allowing me to
    multi-task, then (probably when the laptop got hot or memory ran short)
    when I alt-tabbed to another window, it would flash back to LR and stop
    the show, clearing the second monitor to the vista desktop background.
    I've got an unwieldy catalog, it takes a long time for it to think about
    some tasks, like for example initializing the second monitor. I think
    this 3-year-old Vaio laptop's video card is sorta lame, though it's a
    premium model that I bought largely because it had a video card with
    some on-board ram. I'm currently optimizing the catalog which will
    probably help but if there's another setting I might have tweaked with
    an accidental shortcut key or something, I'd appreciate any ideas.

    Apart from that, it works great for this purpose, showing slides to
    customers at a trade show, and if they ask "What's that?" I can see in
    LR and pause it there. When it failed, I used irfanview, but I can't see
    that monitor so it's awkward to set up and blind to me as it runs.

    I am running Ultramon for some issues with dual monitors in vista, if
    that matters. It shouldn't for one application.

    Yeah, what the heck, this group was dead for a week for me after I asked
    that question. I think I intitially just didn't notice it was blinking
    out. Would've been nice to have that capability.
