Premiere is designed to require 100% of the computer's resources while it is working
As far as I know, if you switch the focus away from Premiere... it stops
It didn't use to be this way. I believe it's entirely possible for Adobe to design Premiere to go back to the way it used to work and keep playing with or without focus. I wish they would.
Editing PCs and multitasking don't go together.
Keep a second PC for IM and email, etc. I use a laptop for such things.

I dont think so, since when i`m playing the video to see how it looks, etc. only uses 20/30% of CPU power and less than a half of my RAM, so i can still have enought power to look another few things.
I think that, in any case, this stoping of the video makes me lose more time when i work than the time i could lose for using the processor to another things in the time between. and since most of the actual workstations have multicore processors and video editing dont have such high hardware requirements as video composition, this is maybe a quite outdated feature of premiere.
I think that adobe maybe will take care of this things and fix them in a new version, since anothers softwares of the suite have similar issues, like Encore for example, that can only use one of my cores and in this aplicattion that require computer power to reencode content, render the menues, etc. this issue is a problem.
Yes; this is a change since ppro 2 You used to be able to focus away and ppro kept playing. Like it can still do while capturing.
It is a WAD. Working As Designed
Bad design, then.
