When th window lost his focus you have to acquire the keyboard and thw mouse again.
The code is something like that:

if(FAILED(pKeyboard->GetDeviceState(sizeof(KeyboardState),(LPVOID)&KeyboardState)))
{
pKeyboard->Acquire();
if(FAILED(pKeyboard->GetDeviceState(sizeof(KeyboardState),(LPVOID)&KeyboardState)))
{
return false;
}
}
