Hi Edgar,

 

Yes, this is the expected behavior. In order to keep the All-In-One DB relatively "crispy" when it comes to loading speeds we decided to make it merely hide after transfer (sort of a "sleeping" state) instead of fully unloading it.

The AIO DB has a much more complex structure than the relatively simple legacy SP Dictation Boxes (some of them are also available in SP 6 PRO package). The idea is that this will reduce loading speed after initial launch. This actually works very good.

 

However it should most definitely not occupy the amount of RAM it does on your system. When in idle state (hidden, no contents) the load should be about 17 MB.

When active, focused, and with a contents of, let's say about 6000 words it shouldn't take up much more RAM than about 26 MB.

 

Here's how it behaves in such a case on my system:

 

 

 

 

Processor/RAM load:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I suspect the issue is the result of conflicting config (temp) files on your system. Did this problem occur after the most recent 6.9 update?

 

Try the following. First kill the DB process by saying "Kill Dictation Box" and confirm.

Run the SP Cache Manager by saying "Cache Manager"  --> "click Clear All Files" and confirm with "Yes Please".

Preferably reboot after that as well. This should fix the problem. If not, then there's something else going on on your system and we need to look into this some further.

 

About the "sleeping" feature. If I remember correctly we had a checkable option for this in the beta versions of AIO DB. The user could choose to either make the box go into into "sleeping" mode after transfer or to completely unload the box, which will result in slightly longer loading speeds. Although some users may not find this a problem at all. 

 

I'm not a big fan of adding icons the notification area because some users already have more than enough items there (like Kevin ), besides I don't find tray icons particularly user-friendly.

 

But I will most definitely ask Tom to bring back sleep state as a checkable option :-).

Tom, if you're watching?
