stevecasper Posted October 15, 2009 Report Share Posted October 15, 2009 I'm cracking open a new topic for this, thanks to Terry. If anyone is still experiencing this rather frequently, can you please try the following for me? Go to Options > Preferences and make sure that "Auto restore the keyboard and mouse hooks" is turned off and then apply your changes. I have a working theory that this might be the cause of the problem and I'd like to test out my theory. Apologies for straying from the main topic, but ... as you've raised the subject of that setting, Chris, are you satisfied with its reliability in general please? About once a day on average I find a regular, stable macro won't activate. Typicaly it's shortkey activated. Yet directly after using Restore Keyboard & Mouse hooks it works OK. I've always had Auto restore the keyboard and mouse hooks enabled. -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK This is splitting from the "Hot Topic": MEP slowing machine down dramatically . I have never had "Auto Restore Hooks" selected, but I've experienced the slow-down described in that thread for a long time. I did, just now, select "Auto Restore" because I've been having issues where some of my macros that are generally very reliable will suddenly stop working until I manually restore the hooks. Based on Chris and Terry's comments quoted above, I'm curious about this function. Should I expect my keyboard hooks to work 100% of the time now? Am I going to still need to restore them manually? Does anybody else have concerns about hooks being dropped? Have I completely missed the boat? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
