Brad, Thats not it either I too religiously close all databases before I close Protel peroid. Like I said at times I forget and compress a design and then a library manually and it will hang sometimes on the second compress if I don't close the design utilities between compresses. It does also like you said hang the client so I need to end task quite often seems like every 5 or so time I close Protel if you look at the task manager right after its still there.
I have also noticed DXP takes a little while after closing it to release the task, it has not hung but it does sometimes take a minute to stop after closing.

I have also never seen it prior to any of the updates or SP4. So is there some other issue besides updates or service packs? I know one thing that I do religiously, close design databases prior to closing P99SE. Every time, without exception! Considering P99SE can leave the Client99 process running when you close the application, what else could it do if you were closing it with a DDB open? Could this be the issue, I don't believe I have seen any of you mention that you specifically close the DDB first? Possibly Robert meant this, but I found his wording a bit mysterious.
