    I have had this problem for as long as I can remember. If I leave a set of books open in NV2 and do not use it for a period of say 30 minutes, when I try to click anywhere or perform a task it takes forever. The speed does not pick back up even if I am patient. The only way to fix this I have found is to exit out of NewViews altogether and re-start. Is there a reason for this? Is there a fix? I have been trying to remember to shut down when I go for lunch or to a meeting, but it is a bit of a pain.

    Thanks,

    Are you by any chance using this from a server? We have the same problem here with 3 workstations. I’ve posted a question in the networking forum.

    Hi John;

    I’m glad I am not the only one with this problem. I was beginning to think it was just me that seemed to get all of the ‘bugs’.

    Although we have a server, I am running NewViews from my harddrive as a single user.

    Thanks,

    Kristie

    When a program is idle, windows moves the displayed program from memory to disk in a windows swap file (page file) which is supposed to improve machine performance. When the program is used again, windows tries to restore that program from thw windows swap file back to primary memory (RAM). This process of moving from the swap file to RAM is long delay you are encountering.

    There are methods of increasing the speed from the swap file to RAM but the best method is to purchase a faster hard disk. A few years ago, hard disks that came with computers were usually 5400 rpm (revolutions per minute) and today the standard is becoming 7200. I suggest that you double it and get a hard disk that is 15400 rpm.

    Regards to all,
