Audacity 2.4.2 locks up after several minute of inactivity

When using the most recent version of Audacity, I find it locks up after several minutes of inactivity and I must exit using Ctl>Alt>Del and restart the session. I tried re-installing, but same the problem exists! Anyone running into this glitch?

In a word, no. :slight_smile:

Two things to try:

  1. Tools > Reset Configuration. Note that your configuration may not be reset by a simple re-installation.

  2. You can try resetting/deleting all of your macros, plugins, and plugin settings. To do this, first exit Audacity, then rename the “audacity” directory where Audacity stores it’s preferences. See Preferences - Audacity Manual

I hope this helps. :smiley:
