PV360 and Multitasking

I've been having an issue lately with PV360.  Here is what's happening: while performing a final render I am unable to do anything else within SolidWorks. If I try to open another file my cursor turns into the blue circle and I get nada.  The program doesn't crash, it just doesn't allow me to open, create, or modify any other files until the final render is done.  The file I'm working on isn't terribly complicated.  It only has ~15-20 appearances with some lights and standard environments.  As soon as the render is done everything is fine.  Problem is that the renders are taking ~3hrs (yes, I know you can schedule renders or do them overnight).  I guess I could catch up on some naps...

 

Is this expected behavior?
