Default Re: Play and Stop Buttons both flashing - track window froze

You're in pause mode (or prime for playback mode). Option+click the play button in the transport window, then try it. It should play instead of both buttons flashing.

Sometimes if you have a bunch of tracks in your session, protools will delay when you hit play. You can use this mode if you want to cut out the delay. You'd have to enter pause mode before you actually wanted to play or record though.

Just for reference, if you have a windows machine, you can right click on the play button in the transport window and uncheck "prime for playback." I'm not sure if this step will work on a mac. If it does, it would be control+click.
