inDesign freezes for a few seconds, sometimes minutes while I'm working on projects, even with very light projects. InDesign and the entire laptop freezes.
What I could do? Are you improving inDesign compatibility with macbook pro M1?

Thanks

The problem is that InDesign and most other Creative Cloud apps do not run natively on computers with the M1 chip. Rosetta 2 is used to simulate normal behavior but it has bee shown that the simulation is far from perfect. Please see https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/apple-silicon-m1-chip.html for more information.

I'm sure Adobe is working on it, but you're going to need patience. There are quite a few other people reporting issues.
You might consider reporting them to Apple as well. After all, it's rosetta 2 that's trying to emulate Intel processors.
