Why does it take so long to load a workspace that contains a point cloud layer?

I have a workspace that was saved with a las overlay that I performed some LiDAR processing on. When I open the workspace it takes a really long time to load.

    Is there anything I can do when I save a workspace with a point cloud to help it to load faster?

    To some extent, it depends on what processing you have done, and how much data you are working with, but generally, if you export your changes to a new LAS file and create a new workspace with that file, the workspace should load faster. Once you have processed LiDAR data, there is overhead to loading those changes from a workspace -- it is much faster to just load a LAS file.
