it is probably losing focus

ie. even tho it is in full screen and in front another program has become more active and keyboard input goes to this program.

Possible solution #1
- Run MP Config
- General Settings
- Select keep mediaportal always on top

Possible solution #2
Either click with the mouse, or press alt+tab to bring MP back into focus
