If I leave Atom open for long periods of time, it begins to stutter and slow down over time.
If I close Atom, I am guaranteed to lose my state, because whenever Atom is started, it just hangs. And it will eventually time out, prompting me to force it to close. It is simply impossible to re-open a project. I can open a single file from a folder by right-clicking in the folder and choosing to open it with Atom, and from there, I can re-open a recent project and chose the option to discard state, but I can never close Atom and re-open a project. Ever. And I’m getting really frustrated and annoyed with it.
Tonight, I tried to copy a folder to a new folder within Atom, and it hung, eventually prompting me to close it. I wish Atom had better error handling around whatever was hanging it up, and I wish it could give me some clue as to what is causing the issue.
How do I fix this?
