'MPLab simulation speed?'

Guy's,

 I remember some talk about MPLab running slow unless you move the mouse
around or do some miscellaneous keyboard action (something to do with
interrupt activity?).   But I don't remember seeing a resolution to the
problem.  Did I miss it?  Is there some setting someplace to avoid having
to do this?

Thanks.

I recently discovered that Windoze will not work with an extended keyboard
queue in a DOS session, unless you generate some kind of input events for
that window.  Just waving the pointer over the window will work, but when
you don't the program just sits there waiting for more keyboard input
(which is put in the queue already by a small utility) while Windoze spends
a few zillion cycles in an empty loop in the kernel.

Ok so I am right in thinking it's one of those Windows 'problems' right?
And ... there is no 'fix' or work-around for this?  Does everyone sit there
and 'wiggle' their mouse while the simulator is running?  Hope I'm not
ignorantly over-looking something obvious here...

Thanks,

    eeeeerr...actually....yes! -but I keep getting told to stop fiddling
    with the mouse and do some work, and they don't believe me when I tell
    them why.
