Obsidian consistently freezes on note switch/create after ~15+ minutes idle

Steps to reproduce

Start Obsidian. (Use note switch once?) Switch windows(?)/do something else for thirty minutes.

This issue’s related Obsidian freezing after being left idle - Bug graveyard - Obsidian Forum, but my issue applies to just note switching mode, when you press ctrl-o.

Expected result

To be able to immediately switch to another note.

Actual result

Note switch view accepts no input, yet the cursor blinks. It shows a list of notes, but it’s unresponsive. (I’ve restarted my computer thinking my keyboard driver effed up, but I can type in other places.)
