This is a strange problem. As you know, we have two, identical computers, sharing the same printer on a wireless network. Both computer are Vista Home. This only happens on my wife's computer. She will be inputting text. It can be in her word processor or it can be composing an email in AOL (Internet server). She will be going along just fine and then, all of a sudden, everything comes to a halt. She has to wait a minute or so for the computer to get it together, and then she can continue. In the meantime, if she tries to input any text, it won't do it. If she types some text during the "pause period," when things finally snap back into working order, the text she entered during the pause period does not appear. I would be interested to hear some theories on what this might be. I have a theory, but I don't want to influence input, so I'll shut up and wait to see if you guys can come up with anything.
