Sierra Chart user input delay using live data

Hi, since going to real time streaming data, i find that SC has a problem with delay on user input (eg mouse actions - zoom/scroll/move chart) and hangs for a second or so every few seconds, particularly if the computer restarts from sleep mode. I find i have to Reload & Recalc (Ins key) each chart to get it to behave which shouldn't be necessary. I'm using 1 chartbook with 16 charts (all the same instrument - different timeframes - 1/3 daily & higher, the other 2/3 are intraday and tick), no complex studies (std volume on most and Zig Zag Cum Volume on some charts). When this occurs the CPU fan also kicks to high until I Reload. Is this a known problem? Any advice on resolution, as its very unproductive, particularly if it happens during a trading session. Thanks

In general refer to help topic 30 for this kind of condition:

And refer to:

Also this makes no sense at all. That will never be necessary unless you are using some custom study which has a problem.
