When you save a file, it actually adds to the amount of memory being used in Blender currently. This happens to me quite often. When this gets bad enough, I usually save the file a last time, and then open the Blender file again. When I re-open the file, the previous saves' memory and history is not accounted for, and saving again is very quick.
