I have a nice desktop running windows seven and I have downloaded libre
office. I recently came across a very annoying problem that caused me to
lose a good deal of work.

While typing a report the green save bar at the bottom of the screen
started repeatedly filling up and it was on an unbreakable "save cycle" for
lack of a better term. I believe it was triggered by the autosave function.
Any attempt to exit the program failed. I put my computer to sleep and when
I woke it up the file was still in a save cycle. I could not scroll type or
highlight in the document. I was forced to command quit it. I figured it
had at least saved because of the nature of the problem but this was not
the case. I lost the part of the report i had been working on.

Please investigate the problem. It caused a good bit of grief but could
have been alot worse.

P.S. I have relatively good virus-ware and avoid sketchy sites so I don't
think that was the problem.

What version of libreoffice?

Was this a new document, or are you changing an existing document?

What kind of format did you save this document in? LibreOffice (odt) or Word (doc), or ...

What was the size of the doc? number of pages, pictures in it? etc...

And last, but not least: "I put my computer to sleep"
When a computer sleeps, it's doing NOTHING......

Or are you working, when sleeping?
