Default Spinning wheel of death!!!

I have been getting an awful lot of the dreaded Mac spinning beach ball of death lately! All I am doing is saving my session when this happens. I have to force quit PT and reboot. Anyone have any advice? Running 7.4cs1 with all the latest updates.

Hi,

Any virtual instruments in the sessions?
Which plugins are you using in the sessions?

Have you tried any of the troubleshooting tips?

Only seems to happen on the first save after you opened a session. Do not force-quit PT when it happens. Wait till it comes back. Can take up to a couple of minutes.
