Hi,

I have noticed only that it usually happens while out on the Web. The =
response to the arrow keys gets very tardy and it seems to happen very =
suddenly. Often, if I unload jaws I cannot restart it either with the =
hot key or by moving with keystrokes to the desktop and typing J then =
enter. I have to restart the computer to get it back.

This has been with both Jaws 5.0 and now 6.0 on a ThinkPad with XP Pro.

Mostly it is very distressing to have to do this and wait for Windows to =
come up but closing applications and restarting them don't help either.

Thanks.
