Several people have asked the same question (or variant) that I am asking below and it never really gets answered completely or resolved and then the threads are locked so no one can ask for more clarification or help.
I checked task manager and it says that shows that Adobe Photoshop has VERY HIGH POWER USAGE, and it says that cpu and memory are both under 30% utilization.
Is there a problem with your computer that this is a concern?
Again - what is the "problem"? Is this causing a lag or slowdown on your system?
I am sorry for making it complicated. The problem is Adobe Photoshop not responding and unable to save anything. This happens a lot.
That has nothing to do with the power usage. It's a red herring.
What are your specs?
Specific Photoshop version, Computer OS, HD space, RAM, Video Cards, VRAM
Specific Photoshop version —— Adobe Photoshop CC 2018
Computer OS —— Windows 10
HD space —— Samsung MZVLB512HAJQ-00000 512 GB
RAM —— Kingston DDR4 2666MHz 32 GB
Video Cards —— Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 / 6 GB
Any reason you haven't upgraded to CC2020 or CC2021?
There is another guy said that updating won't help.
I changed the version to cs 6 and it almost never crash again.
Thanks, any way.
Your choice but you should at least attempt to install CC2020 and see if the issue persists. CS6 is no longer supported and will eventually be unusable.
You should install 2020 (you can keep your other version installed) and give more specifics on what is happening besides the vague "not responding or saving anything" and we can give you detailed steps to take to resolve.
There is no major roadblock for using Photoshop CC2020 or 2021 given your computer specs, so it could be something as simple as a preference or setting.
