Are you sure it's "ALT-tabbing" and not another application being put in the foreground (notification or other reason).

 

You could try to run your game in windowed mode to see if you have something popping in the task bar when that happens?

 

You could also have a task manager running in the foreground and keep an eye on the process tab to see if you have something running that could be causing this.

There could be stuff running in the background, that's why I mentioned looking at the task manager while you have a game running in windowed mode.

 

Also, as @LukeTheCoder05 mentioned, try another keyboard even if you didn't have that issue before.

 

The point of troubleshooting is to try everything, even stuff that you think might not be related. That way, you get a confirmation.

Additionally, make sure you're playing in "full screen", not "full screen windowed". Even then, if you have multiple monitors with games that "lock" your mouse to their window (e.g. FPS games), you can still accidentally "tab out" if you move your mouse away from the window faster than the game can recenter it. I personally had the latter problem when I set my mouse DPI too high.
