Excel quits the edit mode accidentally



When I edit a cell in Excel 2011, then after some seconds Excel terminates the edit mode and switches back to «ready» in the status bar, whether or not text is entered. Same when I double-click a cell or use the ctrl-u shortcut, then the status bar changes to edit, the cell is highlighted, but after some time it changes back to «ready», as if I'd pressed the enter or return key. The time interval is not constant and varies between one andthree seconds. Is this some sort of function activated by mistake?

There is also Excel 2008 on this Mac, and it behaves identically. In other programs on the same Mac all text input works correctly, so I think the keyboard and system is okey.

Thanks for any enlightenment!
