i have an application that works well most of the time. don't we all.
occasionally when the user minimizes the app to the task bar it will
not respond when they click on the app and try to restore it. other apps
on the machine minimize and restore find.

I have checked everything that i can think of.

does anyone have an idea of what would prevent the app from restoring to its original size.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance.

No idea...

What does the app do?  Is it processing in the background when it doesn't restore?

it does continue refreshing the an infragistic grid. so everything is uptodate when they bring the app back up. it is running in real time. so the users always want the lastest info.
it also is multithreaded launching and automated backup process. also the data load is run on an alternate thread.

do you have any idea how i can identify where it is stuck.
 keep in mind this is random. i have over 200 hundred users pounding the hell out of it and it does not happen to all of them. i am trying to isolate it but would love to know where it is stuck.
