OS X V10.7 Lion :: 2012 Macbook Pro Crashes And Reboots Randomly?

Jun 21, 2012

I just bought my new 2012 macbook pro a couple weeks ago, and so far it has crashed and rebooted by itself four times. Three of those four times, I had only been running  a couple programs, such as Chrome and Mail, while all others were closed. the entire computer will freeze for about 6-7 seconds (no response to mouse movement/keyboard) and then shut down and reboot.  

Is this a bug with OS X Lion? or the new macbook Pro? or my macbook pro specifically indicating there's some sort of defect?

Info:
MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012), Mac OS X (10.7.3)

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Now Reboots Randomly After 10.7.4 Upgrade

May 14, 2012

I have been running a Mac Mini OS X Server for last 3 months without a single error. I have 2 of them.Yesterday, I upgraded to 10.7.4 (from 10.7.3) and today, one of my servers has crashed twice. Both times, it has rebooted (no Monitor attached to Mac Mini). It is out of service for 10 mins or so. This concerns me, as it never rebooted before 10.7.4. Also, other Mac Mini OS X Server doesn't have an issue.I usually wait a few weeks before installing software updates on servers - but I decided to yesterday (Sunday), because I had some time, stupid me.

IMac :: Randomly Shuts Down - Instantly Reboots Itself

Nov 16, 2010

I do not have AppleCare on this machine. I've got a 27" iMac that will randomly shut down, be it in the middle of playing music on iTunes, while I'm typing a document or while the machine is simply in screensaver mode doing nothing. Usually the machine tries to instantly reboot itself. All too often, it cannot be rebooted and I have to let sit for quite sometime before it will even power back on. Lately the problem has gotten worse, almost never reboots by itself.

Finally, in the last few days, it just won't turn back on. Nothing. My biggest concern is that I have an unreleased music album from an instantly recognizable major client on the iMac's hard drive, not due out for many more months and still unannounced. I can't simply take the computer into an Apple store for troubleshooting as those files are worth and could cost me exponentially more than even a new iMac outright ever would.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail Randomly Crashes?

Apr 3, 2012

Typical Apple discussion from browsing the web but I will give it a go. I'm not doing anything to cause it to crash, I deleted mailboxes and just kept iCloud still crash, I just other mailboxes like Gmail and got rid of iCloud still crashed. I deleted RSS feeds still crashed, It still crashes when nothing else is open, I rebuilt my mail library (I will leave that one as a cliff hanger to if it worked or not).  

Any ideas or better alternatives to Mail? I don't like outlook and really should never be an option.

Mac Mini :: How To Figure Out Why Crashes/reboots

Aug 31, 2010

Is there an event log or something? I leave it on all the time, good airflow around it and it's on a ups. It didn't crash for the first year but now it's almost daily. I use this one for the house itunes server so it's extra frustrating. Any ideas on what to look for? I've made no mods at all, even the RAM was from apple (when I bought it).

Mac Pro :: Random Crashes And Reboots - Snow Leopard Broken

Sep 8, 2009

Installed Snow Leopard on my 1st gen Mac Pro and had nothing but trouble: random crashes and re-boots that have gotten so bad that now it crashes during boot up. Part way through the spinny wheel you get after the boot-up Apple logo either half the screen goes orange (!) and it crashes, or the centre of the screen corrupts and it crashes or I get the multi-lingual grey screen of death. Same happens if I boot from the Snow Leopard DVD. Pretty unhappy as you can imagine: can anyone suggest anything? I've tried re-seating the graphics card , blowing out the dust and I've rotated all the memory: makes no difference.

Intel Mac :: Freezes And Crashes Randomly

Feb 3, 2012

My iMac randomly freezes and crashes on me.  Most of the freezes occur when scrolling with my trackpad on websites with Google Chrome.  I get the pinwheel and have to use the power button to turn off and on the iMac.  I haven't noticed any particular connection to Flash websites or video related sites.  It just seems kind of random.  I've also been careful to have absolutely nothing else running and it still does not prevent it.   

Also, from time to time the iMac will crash and go to a solid color screen.  Either Blue-Gray, White or Black.  It seems to be random colors.  When this happens, I have to use the power button to cycle it off and back on again. 

Some info about my iMac: Model Identifier: iMac7,1  Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo  Processor Speed: 2 GHz Mac OSX 10.6.8 

What could be causing this or how can I diagnose the problem?  I can give more info if needed.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Applications :: ITunes Crashes Randomly - Pirated Music

Sep 20, 2010

I don't know why, but iTunes entirely too often on my computer. I use a 15" MBP running 10.6.4 (The latest version of SL). I'm using iTunes 10, but I was having this issue prior to the update. It crashes seemingly randomly sometimes when I finish an album, sometimes between songs, and sometimes just mid-song. Restarting seemed to help once, but it eventually started crashing again, and all subsequent reboots have had no effect. I have about 21 GB of music, mostly pirated (though let's not get into that debate); I listen to music by the album. My library is completely music (no TV shows, podcasts, etc.). Am I the only one sending them 20 enraged error messages a day?

MacBook :: Pro (OS X Lion) Overheated Seemingly Randomly

Mar 31, 2012

Earlier this evening my Pro (OS X Lion) overheated seemingly randomly. I gave it time to cool down but had to restart it. Not too long after restarting, it started blaring a klaxonlike horn at me. I didn't know what to do so I just shut it down. It's working better for now, but we'll see.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: MacBook Pro Screen Blacking Out Randomly Even When In Use

Apr 28, 2012

For some odd reason, my pro which is only about a month old keeps blacking out. I already checked on the automated sleep and it is not that. The screen will just randomly turn black even when in use. I tried pressing buttons, esc, spacebar, and even turning it off. It also has issues turning off. When I finally get it to turn off and try to restart it, it lights up but then the CD drive makes a noise like theres a disc in it even though there is not. I tried ejecting it even though there is nothing in there and the screen goes black.

MacBook :: Reboots Again After Its Done Booting Up?

May 19, 2010

I have an old black MB 2.16 ghz C2D. At times, it locks up and randomly reboots. Sometimes, it gets crazy and reboots again after its done booting up. Sometimes, I get this gray screen that says I have to hold the power button as well. I don't really notice the laptop getting warm at all or the fans turning on that much. I just reinstalled the entire OS and Snow Leopard. I just got a new MBP, so I haven't really been using that one as much (or at all). So, it's hard to say if that fixed it. My applecare runs out on 5/29/2010. And if it's a hardware problem, I'd like to get it fixed prior to my warranty expiring.

MacBook Pro :: Core Duo Turns Itself Off/reboots On Its Own?

Oct 4, 2009

I've been digging around for a couple weeks now for information on what may be happening to my MBP. I've tried numerous solutions, but don't seem to be able to get the computer to STAY ON. Here's my story:

A couple weeks ago, my room mate was using the computer. She closed it to put it to sleep, and left it on my bed. When I went to turn it on, the screen was completely black and the indicator light on the open button was a steady grey. The computer was so hot it was painful to the touch. I unplugged it, hard powered it off, and let it sit, thinking it was an overheating issue.

Since then, the damn thing won't stay on. Initially, it would intermittently just shut off. When that happened, sometimes I could boot it back up, and other times it would sound like something was whirring in the background, but the screen stayed black and the indicator light stayed solid grey. I installed SMCFan and istat to monitor/control the temp and fans.

I noticed somewhere along the way that there seemed to be some connection between episodes of shutting down and the power cord (as in, if it was jostled, the computer shut off)(I should note that my battery is at about 15% health with a full charge). Then, that power cord died (no green/amber indicator light and no connection detected). So I bought a new cable, and set about trying to fix the problem again.

Next phase, it seemed that if I moved the computer, it shut down. So I did some of the recommended fixes. I deleted the power management plist, I changed the settings to never put the computer or the display to sleep, and I turned off the quick-motion sensor that stops the hard drive. I also reset the SMC settings.

This seemed to improve the situation a little bit, insofar as now instead of getting a shut down, I am now getting complete reboots that only *sometimes* lead to the blank screen and steady grey indicator light. This does happen more frequently if I move the computer, but it can also happen if I simply leave it to run. In fact, if I send the computer into sleep-mode, and close the lid, I'm practically guaranteed a reboot.

So, then I reset the PRAM and did the hard-reboot (ctrl+opt+power) and reset the PRAM again. I am currently running Rember to test the RAM, but I'm not sure what to look out for when it finishes, or what I should do about it.

Laptops :: MacBook With OS X 10.4 (Tiger) Reboots When Left Alone?

Sep 7, 2009

First couple of times this has taken place I thought I was making a mistake or possible a power setting somewhere but finally yesterday I realised after checking all settings that my MacBook is actually rebooting and closing all apps for some reason.

Typically occurs when left alone for a hour - not every time - but at least 5 times so far this month. Has anyone else experienced this or do I just have a defect problem with the hardware? What can I do to troubleshoot this? Are there any system logs in this OS that would give me some clues if this is applicaton or hardware related?

MacBook Pro :: MBP 15" Latest Model Spontaneous Reboots?

Jul 1, 2009

Last week I bought a new model 15" MBP which spontaneous reboots every hour or so. Yesterday I returned it and received a new one (including new power supply etc). This one however does the same. Yesterday evening I started a Time Machine restore which was stopped in the middle because of a spontaneous reboot.

I resetted everything (SMC, PRAM, etc.) and tried again. Still reboots after apprx an hour. It doesn't run too hot (67C, 2100RPM). What can be wrong?
