Mimaki printer stops printing in the middle of the job...no warning from the printer or software

I have no idea why the printer just stops printing...Flexi production manager seems locked at 64% print and the printer screen is just sitting with no errors. I have no idea why this happens and can't seem to get either the printer or the software to continue printing. A Glitch?

Make sure the print and cut ques are cleared out. Flexi gets fussy when you leave a bunch of jobs in production manager. You may want to check is sleep mode settings on the PC. Had issues with mine until I set it to 3+ hours. Last bit is security running in the background. Some anti-virus software will monkey up the works. Especially if you are running another package on top of Windows Defender.

It happens so rarely but only on bigger jobs naturally... I Don't keep too many old print files in the que...Just what is cureent until they are cut. It could be that free c cleaner or the superantispyware as they seem very invasive. Going to shut them down from now on...Thank you
Maybe a memory issue?
Fairly new computer with plenty of memory but who knows...could be the issue. How does one resolve a memory issue?

I don't run antivirus, they always seem to be a resource hog. If the file size is gigantic, it may also cause it to hang. I also have less issues with pdfs over eps files

New computers tend to have power saving setting turned on. Make sure the computer isn't set to sleep after a certain amount of time. Sometimes it is set to just turn the hard drive or network off as well.

I had a file that took so long to rip the damn printer would shut itself off before it was done. I've also had my computer go to sleep mid print, that is annoying
