Idea 5.0 Performance Problems Snapshots Uploaded

Having terrible performance problems with Idea 5.0, it seems as though it can never keep up with me typing. I've uploaded a memory and cpu snapshot to the ftp area (3526_dpenney*) if you could take a look to see what is causing this much appreciated.

I've been with Intellij since the 3.0 days and this is by far the most frustrated I've been with a release, it's making coding a real chore.

I've had similiar problems but they seem to have gone away now. Are you using Windows XP?

Yes using Windows XP, I get this everyday, starts off fine and then after a while slows to an absolute crawl. I've got minimal code inspections and intentions enabled in case that was the issue but still really bad.

You are probably running out of allocated memory. It slows to a crawl
for me. Try adding extra memory or close/open IntelliJ.

If the increase in JVM heap size doesn't work, also increase the Windows GDI handle memory limit. It will involve tweaking one registry setting.

This was the final solution that fixed IDEA's slowness on my system.
