Autosave causes P3Dv4 to freeze/not responding

I've noticed that with autosave enabled the sim says not responding for 5 seconds then goes back to normal.

Anyway to fix this?

Yes. Stop using an add-on aircraft which freezes the sim whilst it collects all of its subsystems data for saving. Or don't use Autosave -- do it manually, when you are responsible for the freeze and so expect it.

All AutoSaves do, whether FSUIPC by or any of the other add-ons offering that facility, is call the Sim asking it to save a flight, just as you do when you use the Menu to do it.

Those clever add-on aircraft (PMDG for example) detect the flight being saved then freeze the sim so they can save their data, and with such aircraft there's a lot of it, and probably a number of threads to synchronize first.
