[CP2K-user] MD Simulation Not Updating

Hi Vladimir,

I run into the same issue even with changing my input file to calculate 
KPOINT. I've attached the file here, however, it just hangs after the 
Mulliken Analysis and there are no updates to the output files thereafter. 
If you or anyone can let me know why output file write would stop after 
Mulliken Population Analysis, that would be wonderful. Maybe I have not 
written my input file correctly?

Best Regards,
Devyesh Rana
