Solidworks dominates computer whilst slowly loading large assemblies - frustrating.

Gday all,

 

Here is a massive bug bear for myself and quite a few people.

 

Whilst opening an assembly, understandably can take a while. But this also means that Solidworks needs to have your attention whenever it sees fit and wants to be on top whilst you try to do other minor tasks on the same computer. I may want to work on AutoCAD or Word whilst I wait for the assembly in SW to load yet I am bombarded with prompts every 4 seconds.

 

Is there a way to stop this? To change a setting somewhere to make SW behave??
