Latest Atom on Windows 10 Regains focus with delay #13456
When opening Atom for the first time, or when clicking off Atom to "lose focus" and then clicking back in to paste/type into Atom the application seems to hang for roughly 700-900ms (800ms on average). This is not only annoying to have to wait nearly a second to even use Atom but its gotten to the point where myself and a few other community members have switched to alternative editors whilst this is being fixed.
I have cleared out everything imaginable on my system to "Fresh Install" atom.
Once I fresh installed Atom I even tried disabling certain Atom functions know to cause some delay from the other issues on GitHub Atom/Atom.

Suggestions / thoughts
I think the issue is related to something that is checked with files. When git packages are disabled the issue still exists. Hence this issue being different than the slow git refresh issue.
To fix this I would imagine digging to find the issue/cause and changing whatever task from being 1st priority enough to "hang" the app. To a much lower more back-grounded task, something that even if it must take 800ms, for it to not interfere with the user's experience, and input.
I am able and willing to help out with this issue as needed. Just @d4rkd0s me.

Total huge discovery, the project folders on the left have an impact on what you are currently editing. I tried the same exact project without my .git folder, and Atom is responding fully!
The absolutely odd thing is I have disabled ANY/ALL plugins/packages that are related to git.
Now to figure out how to resolve #9544 Atom is slow regaining focus on Windows 7 with git repo
I was having the same issue without git repos but its because the file I had open wasn't in that project, so this begs the question does Atom process all the "projects" on focus?
