I think that you can't.
At least as long as you run it as "fullscreen". Try it also with other
fullscreen applications (e.g. games) you'll find that they are
automatically minimized whenever you switch to some other application.
Instead you should try to not run X in fullscreen mode (i.e. removing
"-fullscreen") and then you'll be able to switch to other
application/windows without having X minimized.
