So, you are in middle of something urgent and top priority? In the meeting just displaying the business plan for 1000 people? Fixing a bug that needs the release in 30min or otherwise small babies will start to burn?

Update. Why not? It's like driving down the motorway, someone stops you and tells you that they're going to remove your steering wheel now. For no reason.

    @filthyranter it's Microsoft's Software Center. So pretty much what you described.

    @Parzi what I found to work was just have a loop killing the software center and doing that

    @Ubbe , even if wasn't Windows, I would probably still not be doing anything useful...

    But seriously...I am in the middle of figuring out some algorithm problem. I have all editors, plots etc. nicely setup on the screen. And then this shit happens...Had to wait for 10mins for the laptop to bootup and meanwhile I forgot everything I was doing.
