win7 64 sp1 bit autocad2012 sp1

Autosave is turned on and set for 10 min. every 10 min the autocad freezes up.

the cross hairs freeze in the drawing area but i can move the mosue around in the command area.

I can save the drawing. and close auttocad. if i open autocad but it is in the same freeze pattern.

I must reboot the computer and start autocad to get aout of the freeze.

Has this always happened in 2012, or is this a recent event that started today/this week?

Are your files stored locally, or on a server? If Server, what are your network type/Server OS?

If you tested by locating your files on your PC, does the problem go away?

Are you an Admin, or local admin, in Windows on your PC?

Only a Doctor would say thing like: If it hurts when you touch it, then stop touching it.

It's like insurance: you don't need it until that day you do. At 30minutes it does sound as though the OP relies on it more than they wisely should, unless that was just a test.

 

Now behave you two :smileyhappy:
