I am starting on a animation and every time I click something it waits and says at the top of the window "Blender (Not Responding)".

I know what it means but is there a way to stop it from doing this? Its very annoying having to wait 7 seconds to select a bone. I don't know what to do I have tried turning of grid and outline selected and it still is slow.

Also, I am on a gaming laptop with a I7 and a gtx 960 so there should be no problems like with old computers.

    $\begingroup$ We can't help you with the available information. Is your scene too big or complex? Is your computer busy doing something else in the background? Also see blender.stackexchange.com/questions/68311/… $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Feb 8 '17 at 23:46
  • $\begingroup$ i don't think so. the scene is entirely made of empties. only the characters are actual models. also i only had internet and premiere open. i have closed both of them now and nothing is really helping. $\endgroup$ – doffsAnimations Feb 9 '17 at 0:05
