Many DirectX Samples show how to do this (Space Donuts for example). You should look at their sourcecodes.

I'm having problems with minimizing and maximizing my game, and having it actually work. What I need to do is have the game not do anything (change the game state) when it is minimized, and have the state changed back, and restore all surfaces, buffers, and input devices when it's maximized again. Can somebody tell me what I need to do? Should I use the WM_ACTIVEAPP or WM_ACTIVATE message? How should I do this?
