Is there any way to setup the game so when you alt-tab,it doesn't pause ??... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.

Totally depends on the game.
I've found that usually if I can play a game in windowed mode (full) then it doesn't mind when I alt-tab. Otherwise it'll pause. That's just my experience though. Usually MMOs and competitive games won't either way."Halo is designed to make the player think "I look like that, I am macho sitting in my undies with my xbox""

Oh, sorry... did my dismissive one sentence posts not meet your approval? Surely you, of all people, who constantly makes dismissive one sentence posts, should appreciate them, ne? Maybe I should have gone with...
"Play on console lol"
or, "DaftPunk asking for help and expecting to get it lol"

Fullscreen windowed mode.

As Finicky suggested, try finding a fullscreen windowed or borderless windowed mode in the graphics settings. Simple Borderless Window for Skyrim has made my life so much easier.

For all those suggesting windowed - I thought running that instead of fullscreen om-nom-nom'ed performance? Or am I 10 years behind the curve?"Swans are so big, they're like the Ostriches of the bird world"

Some games still pause if they lose focus in windowed mode, though.Stealth Mode!

Oh, you need performance to play these crappy console ports? Are you running Windows 3.1 lol? Any decent computer can run everything on max settings borderless windowed with no problems!
I never noticed much of a performance hit on borderless windows and some games even perform better for some reason.

Most games perform slightly less well. If you aren't pushing your computer to the edge of good performance without window mode, you'll probably only see a tiny bit more stuttering in window mode. If you're already at the edge, you might have trouble with window mode. There are certain games that, with certain graphics settings, run better in window mode.
It's a all over the place. Utterly random. Check out tweak-guides and forums for the specific game. It's about all you can do.I think of [the Internet] as a grisly raw steak laid out on a porcelain benchtop in the sun, covered in chocolate hazelnut sauce. In the background plays Stardustís Music Sounds Better With You. Thereís lots of fog. --tomeoftom
You ruined his point by putting it in context thatís cheating -bull0

This should work:

If you have serious performance issues playing a game in windowed mode, make sure part of the game window isn't on a second screen. If its trying to render on 2 screens you'll get a big performance hit.
