slow debug

When you run in debug mode it an order of magnitude, maybe more,
slower than when you run in ordinary mode.  This is true even when I
have hit the green triangle, wanting to go full bore to the next
breakpoint.

I read long ago that modern CPUs have hardware breakpoint features.  I
would think that would be there should be no speed penalty.

Sometime I have to sit and sit and wait and wait. It would be so nice
to debug quickly.

I am just trying to get the part that is failing. I don't care if you
don't monitor carefully.

What exactly is slower, IDEA or your debugged application? Do you have any active field/method breakpoints? Are you debugging Java?
