If I leave a report open overnight Power BI desktop often freezes and doesnt recover. In the screenshot below there is very little processor activity. The highlighted Pbix file I am trying to work on and is is showing no activity att all. One thing to note is that the report is connected to a dataset that is updated nightly.
Have you turned on the “Power BI Desktop infrastructure update preview feature” in the desktop setting?
If so, a similar issue has been reported internally, so stay tuned.
Problem description: When trying to launch Power Bi Desktop, it throws a frown error when the Power BI Desktop infrastructure update preview feature is enabled but if we disable this feature PBI Desktop launches as expected.
As a temporary workaround, I suggest you to go to the setting to turn off the option “Enable infrastructure update preview feature” to make this issue disappear:
