Solved: 5 Months, 3 Weeks, 3 Days, 2 Hours, 35 Minutes, 28 Seconds ago amnesia conflict with other accelerated software

i have a fairly good system and can run most games, but when i tried amnesia, it was slow.. and i mean like 0.5fps
then by hunch i killed the flash process in my chrome browser (flash rendering is accelerated)
and tried running the game again
..and now it was silk smooth
i tried by opening a movie in mpc and minimizing it, and the game lag was back again
there's clearly something amnesia is missing that every other game is doing
claiming exclusivity of the videocard for duration of fullscreen presence, or something

oh, and also something that should be looked at..
if i alt+tab out of a bogged down game session, my mouse cursor is locked in the upper left corner of the screen
i can't move it from there to kill the game in task manager
i'll have to log out or reboot from the ctrl+alt+del screen, which isn't very nice, or kill the process remotely from a network computer (which most users aren't set up to do)
