Has anyone run into a problem with MS publisher where when you save a project the hourglass appears for about 30 seconds, then the monitor goes into standby mode and nothing works until you reset power?
I am running WinXP pro and MS office 2k.

P.S. After rebooting I check on the saved file and it is there...weirdness.

Its a home built I put together.
P4 1.5gig
Intel 850GB MB
512meg RDRAM
ATI Readon vivo 64meg DDR
Aureal Vortex 2
D Link network card

Publisher is the only program that does this. I have the complete office 2k premium and all the other programs in it save without a hitch.

What power supply are you using? Download all latest drivers for all of your hardware etc.

Try re-installing publisher, and possibly test your memory.

Not sure on brand of P.S. but it is a P4 powersupply. Did the reinstall of pub already, no go. The RAM is fine, this is the ONLY program I have that gives any trouble, thought there might be a "known" issue with it and win XP.
