In single player Minecraft, I like to get the full experience and I hit F11 to go full screen as soon as I log in.

But unfortunately when I did this on multi-player the game crashed unless I waited at least half a minute after joining.

And with the recent update single player now emulates a server, so the crashing happens on single player too!

Is there any way to stop this happening?

Did you try going to fullscreen before connecting? – Zommuter Aug 4 '12 at 7:32
That worked! Thanks for the help. – Matthew Aug 4 '12 at 20:25
You're welcome. I'll post this as a real answer then, since otherwise this question will still show up as unanswered – Zommuter Aug 4 '12 at 21:42

I had similar issues when trying this. However you can switch to fullscreen before connecting while still in the menu. This reduced the amounts of crashes for me to "rarely".
