Blender crash after minimising
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

System Information
OS: Windows 10

Blender Version
Broken: 2.78
Issue was already present in 2015: https://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/41713/how-do-i-keep-blender-from-freezing

Short description of error
Whenever I minimise Blender, be it only for a single second, it freezes. It doesn't matter if it's rendering, running a script or just doing nothing.
As soon as I minimise it and then switch back in, the Window turns white and says "Not Responding".

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open Blender with Windows 10
  2. Maximise the Window
  3. Minimise the Window
  4. Go back into Blender and embrace the crash

no, because it's not a "real" crash
it simply stops working

@Joel Godin (FloridaJo), crash logs are mostly useless on Windows anyway, it's only worth asking from them on Linux and macOS.
