In many fullscreen games and with various drivers, I ALT-TAB to back to the desktop, but the screen flickers to the desktop and switches immediatly back to the game. It stays locked on the desktop only after 2 or 3 tries.

I've assigned a ALT-TAB macro to my mouse just in case it was my keyboard the problem. Nope. The issue still remains even if I ALT-TAB with my mouse.

Try opening a program such as notepad before you launch your game and alt tab into it.
