Atom running slowly and lagging


On my computer at home Atom constantly lags while typing.
Scrolling is also lagging.
Switching lines lag.
I opened atom in safe mode and the problem persisted.

I was typing in a new empty file in a new empty folder.

Here is a image of the results from the profiling thing the FAQ refers to

Anyone know how i can fix this?

Intel® Core™ i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz 2,40 GHz
16,0 GB RAM
Raid hard drive


Check your packages list, often it comes from that


Update: After i left my computer and came back, atom is now running fine and i didn’t touch anything in the meantime so thats odd, but i have had this issue before so if anyone knows what could have caused it, i would still apreciate it as i bet it will happen again. as for packages, im not using any other than the deafault ones.
