I've had this document open since 8:00 AM when I came in to work. I occasionally make changes and save the document. Just now I tried to do the same but I get the following message:

I'm getting very tired of this. It happens a few times a week. Today it's happened twice on the same document in 3 hours. When it happens I have to save it as a copy, delete the original and rename the copy.

I'm 99% positive nobody else is using the document (it's on my personal site, not the main company site)


You can enable check-out on the library. So you could control the lock by yourself, as in check-out when you are modifying the document, and check it in once you are done.
