Re: Slow log off with JAWS 10

Tried all of that! I'm obsessed with keeping everything on my PC up to date and uncluttered. The system has just been fully reinstalled and only the minimum is installed as far as additional software to the operating system.


As I've said time and time again, it doesn't do this wiht any other version of JAWs or no JAWS at all.

During these pauses, I wonder if the CPU utilization rises on your computer. If it does, which process is utilizing it? Task manager will tell you this.

Also, have you applied all Windows updates to your computer? You might have
some out-of-date system drivers that can cause slow-downs.

Finally, if you have running programs that you don't need, stop them.  If
you have software installed that you don't use, remove it.  Some programs
insinuate themselves into the Windows message flow path within your computer
(by the use of hooks and other methods), which again, can slow down
performance.  So if you don't need 'em, get rid of 'em.

I can produce it at will on my own PC but guess you mean it can't be
produced on any PC.

It does it every time I have JAWS 10 running and no other time.

These kinds of problems are the worst, because they can't be readily
reproduced at will. I have two machines, for example, and both shut down
immediately. This is the kind of situation where the competition says,
"Please send us your computer at your expense. We'll reproduce it, maybe
we'll fix your problem, maybe not, and then we'll send you your machine
back at your expense."

Thanks, but no it's not that. I have a six month old duel core PC with
2GB RAM in it. It all shuts down very quickly with JAWS 9 or earlier and
there are no performance issues iwth my PC at all. It is only when I am
running JAWS 10 that this issue occurs and whilst it is waiting to log
off the hard drive doesn't make much sound at all, as if the PC is just
waiting there. Then after a while it suddenly springs bakc to life again.

As I say, it works fine without JAWS 10 running.

Also, my hard drive was newly formatted a few days ago and the only
software on the PC is Vista, Office 2003 and Live Mail and Messenger.

Hi peter,
Maybe it's not jaws it might be your computer. I noticed when I had
     XP running on a slower computer the programs like Jaws and other
     programs took longer to run.  You might want to defrag your
     computer.  Do this overnight so that you won't have the temptation
     to do anything with it.  Then after that see if things work better.

  I've noticed that FS haven't bothered to fix the issue where log
off/shutdown takes over 30 seconds to happen whilst running JAWS 10. It
  still only does this with JAWS 10, not any other version of JAWS or
  whilst JAWS isn't running.

  Anybody else still having this.

  Also notice the issue of JAWS jumping in to forms mode as a page has
  loaded still exists. Thought they might have given us the option of
JAWS not going in to forms mode when a page loads as myself and several
  others have raised it.

  Peter
