Cubase hangs after inactivity ("checking licences.exe" not responding)

Cubase 12 hangs after a long-ish period of inactivity. Event Viewer says it is because of auxhost64.exe, Task manager says that it is the checking licences process that is not responding, although a lot of processes are listed as “not responding” when they are, in fact, just working on it.

Hard to reproduce as the episodes have nothing in common except a period of inactivity. I have no sleep mode or any saving on.

UPDATE: It also crashes without auxhost64.exe (Jbridge) having anything to do with it.

Turn off your internet before starting it up. I had the same thing.
