I'm writing my dissertation in word using cite while you write (CWYW), using a windows 10 computer with endnote X9.3.3.
I've noticed that recently when I insert a new citation with CWYW that I'm getting transient system slowdowns (~5-10 seconds) while the endnote "updating bibliography" progress bar is present in word. Looking at task manager I'm getting a spike of "ntoskrnl.exe" that includes a spike to >95% of GPU usage (gtx1070) during this period. The screenshot shows a lower % since I took the screenshot late.
My questions then are:
- Should I be worried about blue screens of death as I continue writing from these spikes?
- Why is endnote activity leading to spikes in GPU use?
- Since I'm only 4/5ths of the way through the introduction (296 references 68 pages total), will I need to/should I turn off instant formatting?
