I am very new to pycharm and python.
I am using pycharm to explore the language and have it installed on a Centos Desktop running as a VM in Virtualbox on my company Windows Laptop.
I notice that after a few hours my VM starts to drag its heels; taking ten or twenty seconds to respond to a mouse click and so on.
Closing Pycharm seems to help, (I can use my other apps although they don't seem to be quite as quick), but a reboot seems to be the only solution to getting back to a reasonable level of performance.
I notice that when I close pycharm I am prompted several times by a pop up asking if I really want to stop the python process.
I am wondering if I should have set something option to explicitly close python between runs? Why do I have 4 - 5 processes running?
