Default Loading while alt+tabbed

When im loading a level in PR sometimes i have the urge to alt+tab and check facebook or whatever to kill time.
On windows xp (64) it used to sometimes load when i alt tab but now it never does. Sometimes I would let the bar load past animations and then it would finish it between the time i alt+tab and I come back into the game.

So does anyone have any ideas or solutions to get it to always load when i hit alt tab either at the beginning of the level load, or during it?

Does this bug anyone else?

Also now im running win 7 64. And I was going to put this in the support section but i think this might deserve a conversation.

Blame windows, guys. It's not uncommon for a game to pause itself (so to speak) when you alt tab out of it.

Exactly as realistic as playing fullscreen, as long as the resolution is the same.

U mean it is possible to play in window without seeing any border of the window? o_O that'd be pretty epic ofc...
