I've just upgraded to 2008 recently. I'm working on an ASPX page that has a rather large viewstate and uses Telerik user controls.
While using the source editor in 2008 the application freezes up completely for approximately 3-5 seconds. This doesn't happen in 2005 with the same code. This occurs not only when I'm trying to use intellisense, but when I'm attempting to navigate the page.
There have been no problems with C# code.
Getting extremely frustrated. Has anyone run into this problem?

Yes, we are aware of the issue and are working on a solution. However, we'd like to be sure that your case is the same as reported by few other people. Can you provide me with the page that exhibits the behavior? My e-mail is mikhaila-at-microsoft-dot-com

Would be very interested to hear about any potential work-arounds. Thanks for your reply, the code is in the mail.

Is it faster if you close Properties window?

No, haven't noticed any differences with the properties window being opened or closed. I've got the solution running disconnected from any source control, and all of the interface settings as low as possible, including no default properties window.

I have been having the same problem with the HTML editor in vs2008.
I have a rather large page, and the environment freezes up every 5 seconds.
It took about half an hour to write 10 lines of markup, as a result.
the properties window being closed does not make it any faster.

I have this issue too. Very frustrating to type. When in source view, modifying html is very slow because the UI freezes after I stop typing... and lasts for about 10 seconds. Meanwhile the UI is "Not Responding". This only happens on pages with large
amounts of html (in my case ~3300 lines). On pages with only a few lines of HTML, freezing does not occur. I have Windows Vista Ultimate installed.
I've also noticed that the devenv.exe process is usually ticking up (memeory usage) quite rapidly during the time the UI is not responding.

I'm using Windows XP sp2, so I don't think it's a windows vista exclusive problem.
I hope there is a workaround for this.

Im having the same issue.
I know ScottGu has made a blog post about some things you can which off in Options in VS2008, but I can't find it now :(
I found this one, which could maybe solve some of you, expecial people who have installed VS2008 side-by-side with VS2005, which I guess most people have.

Also have this problem having VS2008 installed on Windows XP SP2. Have the default setup with settings for web developer. Get this freezing in Source mode on even small pages (around 100 rows). Only used VS 2008 for one project this far and it is a Web application
project. Haven't tried yet if I get the same problem with a Web site project.
Anyway, hopefully a fix will come out or I think I have to stick with VS2005 for a while.
