    It sounds as though it may be your computer at fault as you say it occurs with other apps.

     

    Open Disk Utility and "Repair Disk permissions".

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts [which BTW are deep]!

     

    Can you give me the link where to purchase the 'event manager'? Equipped with that, can I hide all inactive events and projects?

    Thanks for this lead Ian. I have done 'repair disk permissions' to my Mac HD alone. Should I do it for the other [external] drives as well?

    Yes and also do Repair the Disk on your externals (you can't do it directly on your internal).

     

    After your recent spending spree, if you find cash is in short supply ( ) you don't need Event Manager X.

     

    All you do is create a new folder called something like "Final Cut Projects (or Events) Hidden" and whilst FCP X is shutdown, drag the appropriate items from your Final Cut Events or Projects folders into them.

     

    If you later want to use them, simply drag them back.

     

    It's a very quick and easy process but I must admit that for the "uber-lazy" it is a tad  more convenient.

    I usually minimise the FCPX after checking the render box in playback preferences [as I edit with background render turned off] and put my Mac to sleep.

     

    So you start a process that is supposed to take a long time and then immediately put your mac to sleep?!!

    Thanks Luis for pointing out what I had written.

     

    This sentence has been framed wrongly. If viewed from my earlier statement in this post:

     

    'I am now doing this, I am quitting fcpx after a day's work is over. Next day, I first trash preferences and then open fcpx.'

     

    perhaps this sentence could have been understood.
