Eclipse can get naggy and here are some fixes

 

1. Make changes to the plugins that gets loaded at the startup/shutdown

Preferences -> General -> Startup and Shutdown -> Deselect all plugins

2. Modify the eclipse.ini file to have a larger memory allocation

Use the following content in your eclipse.ini

 

-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20130327-1440.jar
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.win32.win32.x86_64_1.1.200.v20130807-1835
