If you save a file, then while that file is saving, you attempt to save another file or just Cmd>S on that same document, that document will freeze its save process and corrupt the file and cause the work machine (in my case MacBook Pro 2019) to need to be re-set. This issue is extremely frustrating and has caused me many hours lost at work.

Are you saving to the internal drive or an external drive or server?

which OS are you using? Catalina? And which version of Ps? It's always important to provide as many specs as possible when asking for help troubleshooting.
