Sometimes when I launch Indesign it seems like the file is unresponsive. I can't select, move or change anything and I have to close the program and then open it again. Sometimes it works for a minute and then it just 'locks'. I am working on a windows machine but this happens on our Apple Mac as well.

Does this happen with all InDesign files? If you create a new, blank document, does it happen?

Not new files no, just existing files as far as I have experienced. But when I create a file, close the document and then open it again later then it does.
