@thekrazch I'm guessing you have this issue: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-Time-Freezes-When-Any-Computer-on-any-Lot-is-Hover...

Just let me know if the computer is the cause or if it also happens when you don't click on the computer

It seems to be the computer causing it, the game works perfectly fine when I do not interact with the in-game computer.

Same happening here: I try to interact with the computer and the simulation freezes for about one to two minutes. The lag just happens when clicking on the computer (any computer in any lot), and after it defreezes,t game continue normally. It only happen with my saved games from before the latest update. If I start a totally new game there is no problem with the computers.

My Sims live in Evergreen Harbor, and I experience the same problem with the Household pc's since the patch/new expansion. I have noticed, my CPU is spiking (up and around 100 % usage) when I have interacted with Sims pc's too, anybody noticed same problem? - Could be the reason for the Game to freeze/ be unresponsive.

@BasedChild Does the same happen if you click on another computer ? Like a desktop computer ?

It sounds a bit like this happening on PC/Mac: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-Time-Freezes-When-Any-Computer-on-any-Lot-is-Hover...
