nope, after the slow down, typically by then i have more ram available, and the software is fine without reset. On clean startup the software doesn't take long either.

Im having a random issue where when I left click on the title area to begin dragging into a grid, sometimes gridmove completely locks up my computer for 1minute (mouse frozen), then shows the grid layout, then 30 seconds later mouse moves a bit more, and if i press esc a bunch of times, maybe 45 seconds later it cancels. Restarting the software makes the issue go away
Let me guess, Windows XP or any other 32bit Windows version? I had the same issue too, I think its due to gridmove getting swapped to the page file and having to be swapped back. I tried looking for ways to keep it from getting paged, but came up empty. I finally switched over to 7x64 with lots of ram it never happened again.

makes perfect sense too. It happened again today, when i was using 99% of my ram (several virtual machines), and i accidentally moved a window, and solid 5minute lockup. Plus gridmove uses 10% of my quad core 3.2ghz processor which doesn't help when your out of ram... Same thing when you first get out of standby, probably from not using for so long it got paged out... I guess we can consider it solved! thanks

Thanks for your suggestions. I never got a chance to see if the memory usage spiked as the system was too "locked up" to open task manager. Makes sense that autohotkey would take care of that stuff anyways.

I took your suggestion and use a different method, so I use drag to edge to activate gridmove instead of mouse click. Middlemouse button does not work with my logitech G5 laser mouse w/ setpoint software running. So i dont get the double click issues (i routinely dc on titlebar to maximize a window)

Just to give you an update on the lockup issue, it seems to have fixed itself, kinda of.
Reproduce:
-wake up computer from sleep (after being off all night)
-try to do a gridmove

The slow down always happens when I do that. It doesn't seem so severe now, i just wait it out the 5-10 seconds. A second gridmove attempt is back to normal speed. So its like its re-caching the grid or something that takes time. I don't reset the software to get the normal behavior back. So i guess it could be the drag method on titlebar that caused it, due to your script or due to ahk's implementation, or perhaps my mouse is to blame, it does report at 2000 reports/second (rather fast).

hello there, I use dual HDMI+DVI monitor with a custom gridmove template with 13 elements (undo + 4 quads on left, and 4 quads + edges on right).

Im having a random issue where when I left click on the title area to begin dragging into a grid, sometimes gridmove completely locks up my computer for 1minute (mouse frozen), then shows the grid layout, then 30 seconds later mouse moves a bit more, and if i press esc a bunch of times, maybe 45 seconds later it cancels. Restarting the software makes the issue go away (eg: software works as expected). FYI: i leave my computer on for weeks at a time, going to standby overnight. Can you think of some kind of memory leak or something that could cause this? Anyone experience this before? Could my grid be at fault? I can post it if needed..

Also minor: when i accidentally double click on the title (within the 100pixels) it sometimes jumps to the wrong monitors grid. Any thoughts?

Thanks! It really is great software when it works, but having it lock up my computer when I have documents open is a bit scary..... If we resolve this issue, I would definitely be willing to donate some funds.
