Below is another question, that I was hoping to find answered in a FAQ, but so far no FAQ! Here is the question: In Mathematica 3.0 on a Mac (8500 Power PC) when I stop typing for a while, and then go back to enter a calculation Mathemaitca doesn't respond for about 5 seconds. NOTE: I am not refering to the time it takes for the kernel to process my command. Before the window title bar even indicates that the kernel is running there is a pause which I find very annoying. I assume the system is garbage collecting or something. So, the question is: is there any way to modify or eliminate this behavior? thanks, Steve
