I'm running Vista and when I run my game in full-screen mode I cannot take a screen grab with the print screen button. When I hit print screen, the buffer gets filled with whatever is actually behind the game window. I'm wondering if there is something I need to do when I create the window, or if anyone knows why Vista has this behavior. The game switches the resolution to 1024 x 768. This does not happen for XP or Win 2K, just Vista. I've also tried some of the print screen apps such as Gadwin, but they don't work either. Thanks

Looks like its probably a graphics card thing, something with my computer (Dell M1710 laptop), or my Vista settings. I just tried someone else's full screen app done with GLUT and Print Screen produces just black.
