Richard Beddard 6 Posted February 4, 2012 Share Posted February 4, 2012 Hi there. Evernote has been experiencing 'seizures' on my netbook for a long time, through many iterations of the software. It has frequent twenty-second or so periods where it freezes. The title bar of the window says 'not responding' and the swirly icon (used to be an egg timer on earlier versions of windows) replaces the cursor.The problem is most evident in the note editor, and so I haven't been using it, preferring to draft notes in Google docs, Word, notepad or Evernote web and then paste/send/synch them with Evernote for Windows.I've now decided I'd rather be using the Evernote note editor!I'm running Evernote on a Samsung N210 netbook with Windows 7 Starter edition, and have been through the following steps with Evernote support, none of which have worked:1. Shutting down other programmes like Chrome and Skype which I tend to run simultaneously with Evernote.2. Changing the priority of Evernote.exe in Task Manager to high priority.3. Installing the latest pre-release version of Evernote.4. Moving my database (it's big, over 10,000 records, over 16GB) and resynching Evernote for Windows with the web.The conclusion from Evernote is there's a bug, which goes into a queue of bugs to be fixed and I'm stuck with my situation for now.So... I'm wondering if anyone else in the community is in a similar position. I haven't found any problems like mine from searching but I wonder if other people are either living with it, as I have for a long time, or better still have found better workarounds. I'm also wondering whether to buy a more powerful netbook or (shudder) a laptop. The thing holding me back is that my netbook is otherwise perfect. I love the size, and the fact the battery lasts most of the day, it does everything else I ask of it, and there's always the risk the bug will still affect me. Link to comment
