Curious about Windowed Games

  1. I'm curious, how come when you run a game in windowed mode (Alt-Enter), it takes more processing power. Since the game resolution has not changed (i.e. 800x600 on 1024x768 instead of 800x600 fullscreen), it doesn't seem like it should be "harder" to compute. If anyone has a technical explanation, I would appreciate it!
