I only experienced this once so far, but I saw a thread earlier today that sounded exactly like this, so I’m posting this thread assuming it’s not just a one-off and it’s not just my problem.
Edit: Since posting this has occurred one more time in exactly the same way (in script editor, idle for 20-40 minutes after an hour+ of working).
- Work in Studio for an hour or two.
- Minimize Studio and walk away from your computer for 20-30 minutes.
- Come back and refocus Studio, the window is now unexpectedly frozen and unresponsive.
I have created a program dump from the frozen process via task manager and included it in a private message attached to this thread. I have also included the files generated by Studio (e.g. log, dump, etc.).
I have not installed any new plugins recently, nor updated them except for my own for a very minor tweak. I haven’t worked in Studio all week, this is the first time I have experienced this.
Collapsing this since storage space no longer looks relevant
I’m sitting on a Windows update also, so it may be useful to note that this is what my storage situation looks like if you subtract 5 GB of usage from C due to the dump file I just generated, but I wouldn’t expect Studio to need 7 GB spontaneously while idle, while I have enough RAM to accommodate it.
Roblox Studio should not freeze.
Roblox Studio freezes after being minimized and the computer left idle for a while.
There is no way to recover other than force-closing Studio and losing any unsaved changes.
