Macic Carpet Plus: No spells after 22 minutes

I have the Magic Carpet Plus CD and I reached in Magic Carpet
the 14th level (the first where you got a blue opponent).
After about 22 minutes (my castle is at level 6 and I have about
half the amount of mana I need to complete that level) I can't
cast spells. The icons on the right top of the screen blink,
at some spells I get sound, but the spell doesn't go off.
The only spell I can cast is the healing spell, and sometimes
Posession, but casting it on buildings has its effect about half
a minute later, casting it on mana balls results in a spell
that runs around the ball like a missile that could not lock
its target.

I think it's a bug, but the Customer Support Line sent me to a
Gaming Hint-Line, and they said this problem was new to them, it
must be a bug. The only "patch" I found in the Internet was
that little file that should make level 50 easier.

If it's a bug please tell me how to fix it, and if it's a
gaming problem please tell me how to avoid that.

BTW: It's the German version, but I don't think that there is
much difference.

Contact the makers of the game.  It sounds like a bug to me so they most likely will have a patch for it on their web site.

I contacted them: I wrote that I only found the level-50-patch
which didn't help at all, and that I phoned their Support line,
you remember?

Sorry if this sounds brute, but for 100 points I expect a little
more than that, and I'm tired of telling people to read the
questions fully before answering (I had another question
about a MS-DOS game and three of five answers seemed not
to have noticed that and answered "reinstall DIRECT X" or
"change screen resolution")

How can I free my CPU? I've tried only loading minimal DOS-
configuration (HIMEM, my CD-ROM driver and MSCDEX) and the
problem still occured. Is the program that heavy that it
overloads a Pentium-like CPU?
