Manual transmission heats up wont go in gear?

I bought this 97 SE found that if I let the car idle for a long period of time say 5-10 mins. the transmission would become hard to get into gear. feels like it wouldnt spin down for the blocker ring to engage gear when I clutch in. but if I keep clutch in and wait a bit till it spins down, it would go in gear no problem. drives fine when moving only when stopped in neutral then try to get in gear immediately.
transmission fluid has been changed a couple weeks ago with MT-90 cuz I thought it was the fluid, but today it did it again.
