NoteTab Pro unable to write to disk in sleep mode
- I've noticed that if leave the computer idle for some time and come
back later, NoteTab Pro 5.4 sometime has great difficulty writing to a
disk that is probably in "sleep" mode for not having been accessed in a
while. When I try to save to the disk, the status line shows trying to
write the file. The mouse icon goes to busy when passed over the NTP
edit window. It may stay in this condition without ever completing the
save operation. Checking the folder shows that the target file does
not exist (although the backup was created).
I've found that I can get out of this condition by initiating a "save
as" to another file name on the same disk. This seems to be sufficient
to give NTP the interrupt it must have missed. Both saved files are
identically written and NTP continues normally. Very strange little
anomaly! I haven't seen this kind of anomaly with any other Windows
application that would be writing to the disk.
