why would  you pause  instead of  using  the save option if  you say for  a few hours?

If I pause for a longish period in FSX-SE I sometimes get a CTD with the cause being FSForce 2 dll file (a 3rd party force feedback driver) which unloads itself if inactive, otherwise I think all other processes are halted and FSX checks a memory offset every few miliseconds to see if the pause flag is still set.

I often leave my flights unattended, trusting that Radar Contact will auto-pause my flight 200 nm from my destination. I have returned to my flights up to about one hour after the pause had been started without any adverse effects.

 

System load quickly reduces to about one third of what an unpaused sim produces, so no problems from that side, either.

Some times, but not always, I've had  problems with  displaying scenery on a vanilla FSX. I tend to  pause FSX just in case.

Yeah I had it paused for about an hour and non of my cockpit sounds in the ngx would work. So I had to load a saved session. Oh well

 

Thanks guys

No issues here.

 

I've paused pmdg t7 flights for the better part of a whole day with no issues when I resume.

Have you tried to toggle the native sound off and back on as per the recommendation by PMDG? (Default key assignment is 'Q'.)
