I run workrave on my computer, when I play fullscreen games like warzone2100, it would like this program to be killed automatically and restart when the full-screen app quits.

Hi,I've been trying to get games to work on my new setup and have problems running games in fullscreen mode.I have a dual monitor setup (one 720p and one 1080p monitor) and am running XMonad (config file included below).I have installed steam and it works fine. Launching games is no problem as long as they are in windowed mode.
Whenever I play a game that uses fullscreen for awhile and then quit, I notice that my screen will glitch up most of the time on different webpages and videos. Kind of looks like this. When I go to another site or open another window, it goes away for a moment, but it will pop back up every once in awhile.
Whenever I go fullscreen on a youtube video, there is a moment of static, then the controls continuously jump all over the screen, and it seems like the player is trying to center the video between both monitors (I have a two monitor system).
Never had any problems watching full screen flash videos with my dual monitor setup (same hardware) in 11.10 or 10.04.
Hello all...I have been having issues with running fullscreen programs in Cinnamon 2.0.14. When I run any fullscreen program (vbox guest, Steam game, VLC) I can't Alt-Tab, or switch workspaces out of it. If I do try and switch out of fullscreen, the screen stays but keyboard/mouse input is frozen.
I've been getting sporadic "Out of Memory" popups while playing games in fullscreen windowed mode lately (namely Arma 3 and BF4). I didn't get these before switching from fullscreen to fullscreen windowed, but it may be unrelated.
