  Capture presents the "Please Stand By" message in two circumstances:

    1) It is processing video that you just captured.
    2) Your system has video support, but Capture for some
       reason cannot use it.

  Symptom 1) is normal operation for the program, and is nothing
  you should worry about.

  Symptom 2) can happen for several reasons.  Check the following:

    - Make sure to close down all other applications which use

    - If you are using the IndyCam, make sure it is plugged in
      to the back of the machine.  Perhaps the connector may have
      worked itself loose.

    - If you still get the "Please Stand By" message, reboot the
      system.  It might be possible that the system video services
      had become wedged for some reason; a reboot fixes this

    - Make sure that you have the signal source set correctly,
      and that video shows up onscreen from the Video Control
      Panel.  See above question, "I cannot get the right
      video to show in the Capture tool!" for details on how
      to do this.
