I''m coding a full screen openGL game and I want my window to be alt+tab compatible. I am probing the WM_ACTIVATE message to determine when I need to pause the game. The problem is I need to know how to minimize my window, and re-maximize when my app regains focus. My program can handle WM_SIZE messages but how do I initiate a window resize or minimize/maximize?

Have a look at NeHe''s demos, he uses full screen and handles this kind of thing pretty well.
