that could be because of a number of reasons, such as :

you are using a huge workbook or worksheet
a macro is activated on running or formatting in excel
your computer is low on memory or CPU power

is it possible to post your workbook here ?

It also happens when creating a new workbook and the computer has 3gb of memory and i have checked cpu usage already. I haven't check for macros running.

The rest of your Office applications run OK? This only happens with Excel? Try switching to another default printer and check if the problem remains.

That another point of concern indeed, as JPPinto indicates a faulty or missing network connection can very easily make for big delays.
Could it be that the standard template you are using is stored on a network drive or mapped folder ?
