I have an Astro Pulse file that had started and stopped after 34 Min 30 sec that said, "waiting to run (0.393 CPUs + 1 ATI GPU)" and has remained this way for days while other files have run start to finish just fine. Forgive my ignorance, but is this something I should be concerned with? I'm using an HP laptop running Windows 7 with an AMD quad core and AMD Radeon HD6620G graphics. Any other information happily provided.

Any advice is appreciated.

Given the lack of response, I'm guessing the answer should have become obvious to me after keeping an eye on it for a while. And yes, I noticed the file name in question changes even though I always seem to have one file, (always an AP file) that has to wait for some reason, (I'm guessing system resources) before it can continue. I haven't caught it actually continuing, but as I say, the file name and progress time does change when I check the task list. Sooo, "problem" solved, as it looks like there isn't one. Maybe I'll find out why it "stalls" at some future time, but I'm not going to lose any sleep over it. ;-)
