Most of the time, this is an issue with Word popping up a dialog box needing attention. The program won't let you do anything else until it is dealt with. Many times, the dialog box is opened behind all other windows so that you do not even realize it is there. Inspect the opened applications on your task bar to see if this is the case and respond to the dialog.
