Main monitor goes black for a couple of seconds?

I recently installed a new acer monitor, whenever I've been using my main monitor on a game for example and press on my second monitor my main monitors screen goes black for a second or two, looked around but can't find the answer, any ideas? Thanks in advance

Because you're probably in a full screen application, which will go black for a second to readjust the video when tabbing out

Thanks for the reply, just seemed to never do it on my old 1080p monitor, even with full screen applications
