Maybe it senses aircraft is moving?Try 10 sec or even instant. Make sure you don't have any noise coming from your controller, especially brake signal.Hope this helps

Some game controllers are noisey. Registered copy of FSUIPC has a feature that ignores spikes. You can easily test with your game controller disconnect and see if problem changes. The important thing to note is that the aircraft has to be stationary during IRS alignment.

switching the knobs to NAV is enough, no need to switch them to Align. It isn't done in the real plane either.cheers!Tom

That used to happen to me - I think the problem was not setting the IRS POS in the FMC in time. I think your Step 5 starts it over. I just turn to Nav, and then handle the FMC and that's it.
