Version? Have you checked into Named Layer Filters? They could be the culprit.

Is this something new? Are you a new user trying to learn AutoCAD, or are you an experienced user who's just started having problems? Which version of AutoCAD? What OS? Tell us more. ___

alrighty. i'm definately not a noob. i've been hackin around in autocad now for abotu 10 years.
ive just started experiancing preformance issues with autocad in the past week or so.
its Arhictectural Desktop 2004. i'm running winxp pro
no viruses, or anything of the sort
i don't retain layout info, i regen each time i switch, but that not the issue.
the big thing thats pissing me off is the shitty osnap preformance.. a lot of the time the grip won't even show up
and the insanely stupid load times. and file shutdown times
any comments people?

in my case michael i don't think that is the issue. i only have a couple hundred layers, with no filters (i don't believe in that crap)
thanks for the help. so far no solution. keep them coming guys

Autocad creates individual proxy entities that are contained o specific layers. Having a couple hundred layers is part of you problem. The more layers that you have the more chances that yo have reatined these entities. custom linetypes create these problem as do unnamed layer states. Try reducing the number of layers tha you have form your template, add them as you need them by insertin blocks
You should also check to see if your .shx files have become corrupt.
they will from time to time, especially if they are large. you ca download hexeditor from Hdsoftware. this is a binary file edito that allow you to view the code, which is what you are looking for it will look like this
If you see anything other than number on the code side, you have
corrupt file
