There are a number of messages about a similar issue, but nothing has helped me. Sometimes I need to put my computer to sleep while Cubase is open. Or I might accidentally put computer to sleep while I forgot Cubase was running. Then, after waking up from the sleep, Cubase is always completely crippled. I cannot exit Cubase 8.0.5 no matter what I do.
I had the same problem with all versions of Cubase I can remember, at least 5, 7 and 7.5. Many times it has been said that the computer should not be put to sleep while Cubase is on. But I still will do so sometimes, there is no way around it. On previous versions of Cubase (7 for example) it sometimes agreed to finally close after waiting upto 15 minutes. Then, suddenly the .exe would just disappear from Task Manager. With 8 it doesn’t exit after any waiting time. Also, closing the project before exiting does not help at all.
Note that there is no exit problem if I don’t put the computer to sleep while Cubase is on.
Is there a way to super-force Cubase 8.0.5 to close? No process killing programs I’ve tried will work. Cubase8.exe is just at CPU 0% and does not respond to anything. Also it’s not possible to load Cubase again at this point. Only reboot helps.
Since this problem has been bugging me for over 10 years already, I wonder if there is never going to be a real fix?
