I am using a dual core intel machine with 2gb ram under winxp. I have allocated a GB of RAM to IntelliJ. When editing jsp pages, after a period of time, the machine crawls to a halt where I have to wait several seconds before a character is inserted. Its tens of seconds to indent a block of maybe 30 lines of code.
This is not what I call production quality speed. Any ideas on what to do to fix this?
