Companies House Filing/IT Issues

Hi all.
Has anyone experienced any issues with the Companies House online Accounts filing recently? (Or any of their forms come to that).
For example, I have had their system throw me out after leaving my computer for too long (a whopping 15 seconds or so!), and "cancel" button in a form throwing me out to the sign in screen insisting I used the back arrow or hit a button twice (I didn't do either!).

I have had more bad experiences, and would be interested to hear in any from other members.
Incidentally, Companies House have flatly denied any problems exist....
Thanks very much.

    Nothing here, and I've been using it. Sorry!

    I had problems filing accounts last week - could be something to do with the strike.

    Companies house was down for certain periods on friday that issue was resolved however there is a new problem now meaning you cant file anything through programs such as Iris for the meantime.

    I was trying to file accounts on saturday using HMRC's software but I couldn't get past the page where I had to enter the Co House authentication code - it kept bringing up an error but I know that they details I entered were correct. I've not tried again yet today.

    Thanks to everyone for your comments.
    I have experienced some weird things with the CH website, which have caused problems. I am now working my way through the layers of red tape in an appeal process.
    Oh, and I log everything I do (including screen prints) when using their less than satisfactory website.
