I’ve had this issue happening for a while: Basically every time I use Obsidian, it is slow and laggy until I quit and reopen it. At some point I pinpointed it to the computer’s sleep and now I can even reproduce the issue by having Obsidian open, putting the computer to sleep, and waking it up again. This happens with a completely fresh installation of v0.15.9 (i.e. all files under Application Support etc. removed) with all plugins disabled in a newly created vault.
It is noticeable while typing and while hovering the menus in settings and in many other places in the interface. This does not happen in any other application.
I’ve talked to people on Discord in the #insider-desktop channel and nobody has had or heard of this issue before. So I suspect none of you will be able to reproduce it. But maybe someone has hints what I can do to figure this out. (By the way, this also means I’ve tested it out on v0.16.3 and it’s still occurring.)
I’ve looked at the dev console and couldn’t find anything there. I’ve tried disabling hardware acceleration which also didn’t change anything. A performance profile showed that there are lost frames and slow processes, but I couldn’t pinpoint it to any specific thing (so maybe somehow can help here or inspect my performance profiles).
Have Obsidian open. Put computer to sleep. (Wait a few seconds so that it’s actually asleep.) Wake computer up. Start typing or doing anything else in Obsidian and it will be a bit slow (like it’s slightly behind all the time). Quit Obsidian and reopen it and the issue disappears.
Obsidian should not get into this state.
Obsidian gets slow and laggy until it is quit and reopened.
