I've tried 4 times now to build the book and each time I've waited overnight, but nothing happens.  The PB just says "Converting", and the horizontal bar never moves.  It always starts out at about 1/5 complete, but then the bar never changes.  

Any ideas?

   And to John W

If on a PC check Power Settings.  When pugged in PC goes to sleep?  select NEVER.  Not sure that is the fix but worth a try to check.

Mine took 5 and a half hours.

Mac OS equivalent is found in System Preferences under Energy Saver (the light bulb). I have used the settings in this screenshot for more than a dozen years and have not worn out a Mac yet. Since Hard Drives do wear out, I allow them to take a nap, The "Wake for network access" is likely unnecessary since the computer has insomnia.

Spinning Hard Drives have mechanical parts (and some very strong magnets inside the drive case). Caveat: start/stop of spinning hard drive also has wear factor.

Solid State Disks (SSD) are completely electronic (so personally have "Put hard disks to sleep when possible" unchecked).

Well I have made the setting switch.  I am now at over 7 hours for compiling.  I do have an SSD, so didn't expect this much time.  The horizontal bar shows over 50% done now.  So we will see what happens.  The original email said something like 30 -90 minutes.  I am way longer than that, even with SSD and a fast Windows laptop.

This is not entirely wrong but is misleading. Only with some HDDs in some condition will something similar to this statement be true. (e.g. WD green head parking. Also, start/stop means a completely different thing, and there's 2 different states too. In that case yes, start/stop is wearing, but it won't be triggered when you are actively compiling things for hours.

HDDs write/read has "no wear" (physically everything has wear, just that the wear tolerance here is negligible), and all SSDs writes has wears and can only be done a finite amount of times.

Compiling this for hours or even for days for low power machine is normal. It is a very big PBB, practically the biggest available. And Logos' compiler is very inefficient.
