Default Reaper left alone is freezing pc

I have a problem with Reaper.
Opening Reaper without any track is freezing my pc after less than 10 min.
If I'm putting a track with a VST, Reaper is apparently functionning normaly.
I'm using a Dell XPS 15, RME babyface and an Akai MPK88. I have tried the same hardware on an older pc without noticing any issue. I have performed a clean desinstall without any result. My system is working fine with standalone synth (Reaktor). This is a problam I have since the beginning of the yesr. I never had problem before.
Any idea? This is very frustrating..

Default Reaper felf alone is freezing pc - Resolved

I finally found out what was the problem. It is not Reaper but the Dell XPS 15 9570. According to some forums, it is probably a dell bios bug (Dell shame on you!). Modern standby is not functioning properly due to a c state bug. There is maybe also an issue within windows but it is unsure. To resolve the issue I have done the following:
1- Start the registry editor (regedit.exe).
2- Move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Power.
3- Double-click CsEnabled and set to 0, then click OK.
You will have also to choose the Windows balanced energy profile on your pc not the Dell one.
Issue is resolved, Reaper is now stable. In addition the pc is much faster. Just to give you an example, I can now run Kaivo or Diva (in divine mode) at 192 khz/24bit without problem while cracking were present after 64 kHz before.
i have done the change weeks ago so can say the problem is really resolved.
