I don't wanna hijack this but I've noticed a 'video' issue since C7. Perhaps related.
I -rarely- use video with Cubase. But what I've noticed since C7 is that if I leave Cubase open and my PC goes to sleep, eventually (might take a day or two even) Cubase will lock up. If that happens TaskMgr usually won't respond, but if it -does- I can see that it's the Video service that is holding up -everything- in Cubase. The only way out is to log off as the current user or reboot.
The really odd thing is that I can still launch other programs with no problem. But again, TaskMgr and Cubase are a no go.
In short: something in Cubase has locked the Video service and that, in turn, locks up Cubase.
