If you attempt to perform a calibration on an Eizo CG-318 monitor using its Color Navigator 6.4.11.6 software while Lightroom 2015.3 is in the background, Lightroom will stop responding and require a force quit. This is obviously a major issue, as having a soft proof on-screen while performing a monitor calibration is a color workflow essential. I have to use Photoshop to do this now, whereas I would prefer to stay in Lightroom.

Does it make a difference to the lockups if the GPU is shut off in LR / Prefs / Performance?

Freezing and crashing are two very different behaviors.

It was freezing with a spinning beach ball requiring a Force-Quit.

OK, then it froze. And that is not the same as a crash.

Yes, I understand. Not sure why the clarification is needed since in my original post I said "locks up" and "stops responding requiring a Force-Quit." Are those not the same as "freezing?"

I did not say it "crashed," but it certainly never unfroze, even after leaving it for about 30 minutes. The Force-Quit dialog also stated that Lightroom had stopped responding.

Turning off the GPU in LR > Prefs > Performance solved the problem.

I am running a mid-2015 MacBook Pro with AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB graphics.
