    Hi yman,

    Any chance you could post more information about the pausing behavior you are seeing here?  Is it with web projects, class library projects, windows projects?  Also -- do you see it in source view or design-view?

    One thing I have seen a few cases of is where the HTML validation engine can pause things slightly when typing/moving in big HTML documents.  This seems to be disk IO bound (I only see this on my laptop -- not my desktop).  Here is a blog post that shows how to disable it if that is your issue: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2005/11/23/431350.aspx

    One other change I'd recommend if you see things slowing down every now and then is to disable the "auto-recover" feature.  You can turn this off from tools->options->auto-recover.

    Hope this helps,

    Scott
