Cancel meshing

Why does cancelling meshing or simulation in Inventor's FEA take so long? If the meshing is taking way too long I usually assume I have a meshing error and try to cancel the process so I can correct it. However, when I try to cancel the meshing for these parts, it always takes forever to cancel. Usually I end up waiting a fewminutes then doing a hard restart of Inventor. Once I left it running overnight and it was still trying to cancel the meshing come morning. And it's not just one part, this happens everytime I try to cancel a mesh that's stalled out. Is this just something to expect? Anybody know what Inventor is trying to do before it abandons the process it's trying to complete?

I get the same issue. I hit escape and it still continues to compute the mesh, as if its hanging in a loop.

FWIW, there's already a post in the Idea Station to have the escape key force stoppage of command execution.  This idea has already been tagged as "Accepted."
