Drawings update on layout every time I blink

Geof Gainer
Every time I open a layout, jump from another layout and back again, jump from another app and back to AC with a layout open, open a drawing to edit some minor 2D item and go back to the layout, or take a sip of coffee and look at the layout again, AC updates every single drawing on that layout which wastes about 30 seconds on average.

How can I get AC to be less update-obsessive?!

Our office was having this problem with 21. It was resolved when we updated to Build 7000.

That would be my first suggestion.
