    Windows Freezing every 20 min

    by tylewhite » Sun Aug 26, 2018 1:32 pm

    Hi All,

    Relatively new mapper here so sorry if this is a repeat question.
    I am getting a freeze - as in media / effects stop playing and the interface becomes non responsive almost exactly every 20mins have tested 6 times

    Computer is
    windows 10 surface book
    8GB Ram, I5, Nvidia GeForce GT 940

    Got my first show in a week - loving it, so just hoping to figure this out. Loving Mad Mapper by the way! Cheers :D Tyler

    Ok so it's looking like it could be the GPU - without it activated it's running better. Had a 30min run so far...

    It seems like when the surface book auto switches between the gpu and the integrated graphics it causes mad mapper to freeze - as a solution all i had to do was open up the Nvidia settings and set mad mapper to GPU only. I'm pretty sure it would work if you set it to integrated only.. i think it's the switching that is causing issues. I'll let it run overnight and report back!

    It's weird that the system changes the GPU while MadMapper is supposed to have active OpenGL contexts running on the nVidia card...
