OS X Mavericks :: New MacBook - OS Completely Freezes

Jun 30, 2014

I just got a MacBook last week, and am running 10.9.3.  Twice so far, I've been using the computer and the UI ceases to respond:  no response to keypresses, no response to the trackpad.  The only way out seems to be a hard reset of the computer. This is a brand-spanking new Mac, although I have installed QuickSilver and Firefox.  Have there been any issues with freezing on 10.9?

MacBook Pro :: System Completely Freezes For 10 Seconds

Jan 5, 2010

So my Macbook pro started to stall for 10 seconds or so every few minutes beginning yesterday. Like I am just surfing the net, and it freezes completely for 10 seconds, than everything is back to normal. I don't know what to do to remedy the problem. I have Applecare so I could send it in, but wondering first if anyone has had this problem and knows a quick fix before I send it in.

OS X :: Mac Sometimes Completely Freezes - While Using Iphoto?

May 25, 2010

This is an issue I've come across with Macs the last few years & it's only taken me until now to raise any question as to why. It's not specific to Snow Leopard.

Sometime after using my Mac for a while it will just completely freeze up without any explanation why. The CPU is below 50% and still has around 100mb free memory. Eventually if I leave my machine long enough it will get to the state where I can quit a few apps, but it still be awfully slow until I restart the computer.

I admit that I very rarely shut my computer down, most of the time just sleep repeatedly for as long as 2/3 weeks... This isn't a specific issue to the machine, I've experienced this on my old iBook, iMac & now MacBook Pro.

IMac :: Intel Core 2 Duo OS X 10.6.5 Completely Freezes And Crashes

Nov 24, 2010

I have a problem with my iMac 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (2 GB 667 MHz DDR 2 SDRAM), running OSX 10.6.5. OSX crashes and freezes all the time. Nothing works anymore. Sometimes it just freezes, and I can only move my cursor, but nothing reacts anymore. Sometimes the screen blacks (or sometimes blanks) out or shows the weird moving colours as shown on the photo I just took below: After restart, it often happens again and again. Then the iMac is fine for a couple of days, before it freezes again. Can anyone diagnose the problem from the info above?

IMac :: System Completely Freezes At Random Times

Feb 4, 2009

The last 2 days my iMac has completely frozen on me at random times. Frozen meaning, no mouse movement, no keyboard activity (caps lock not responding) and no OSX activity whatsoever. Temp at the time 41C, CPU Usage at 21% or smth, Fan speed at around 1200rpm. However, I don't get the infamous kernel panic error. I haven't changed anything hardware wise. I did have a couple of months ago the graphics glitch problem. Last software update was the iWork one. iMac is Aluminum 20' with C2D 2.4 and ATi 2600 Pro.

OS X Mavericks :: GPU Failing Macbook Usually Freezes During Start Up?

Sep 5, 2014

I have 2011 Macbook Pro (one of those that usually freezes during booting due to GPU failure). My Macbook will only boot if the GPU doesn't kick in during the start up. (When I'm very lucky the computer will get to the desktop and I can disable the GPU with gfxCardStatus). Sometimes I can boot the machine if I wrap it in a blanket to overheat it. Then it won't activate the GPU during booting if I'm lucky. 

This is my question: Can I update my OS X if I maybe have to reboot a frozen machine 50 times before I reach the desktop? This would very probably mean that the OS would install and then ask for a reboot. And then I would maybe have to power off and retry to reboot many many times. Would this FUBAR the system. or would it work when I finally got it up and running? 

Is the update installed 100% BEFORE the reboot, or are some of the updates installed AFTER the reboot? If that is the case, I would think it would have an effect if I had to power down the machine 50 times to get that one "lucky" reboot?

OS X Mavericks :: MacBook Pro Freezes When Connected To LCD Projector

Sep 3, 2014

it's running 10.9.4. every time I hook it up to the projector where I teach, it hangs and then eventually freezes entirely, prompting a hard reboot. I don't understand why it is doing this to me. I just used it at a conference in March and it didn't do this. But suddenly at this new school, it cannot deal with the projector.

MacBook Air :: Freezes When Watching A Video - OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)

Sep 3, 2014

I got a brand new Macbook Air yesterday, and everything was working wonderfully. Now, I noticed when I go onto Youtube the computer freezes for about 5-10 seconds as soon as the page loads. This just started happening about an hour or 2 ago. This is also happening when I'm listening to iTunes radio, and an advertisement commercial comes on. If the advertisement plays a video, and iTunes is maximized on my screen my screen will freeze for about 5-10 seconds.  

I am brand new to using a Mac so I don't know where anything is or how to use it 100% yet.

OS X Mavericks :: How Can A Calendar Completely Disappear

Sep 9, 2014

Every few months I have an issue with iCal. One or more of my calendars COMPLETELY disappear. I have an iPhone with a list of calendars on the phone and on iCloud. The iCal application on my laptop only has iCloud. Calendars seem to magically vanish from iCloud while they remain on my phone. It's driving me crazy!!! I'm about to look for a different calendar app to use. I need my MacBook Pro to sync with my iPhone.

MacBook Pro :: OS X Mavericks (10.9.4) Trackpad And Screen Freezes Randomly

Sep 10, 2014

I got a new Macbook Pro Retina (mid-2014) a few weeks ago and the trackpad and screen randomly freeze even when the only thing I have open is Safari. In other words, it doesn't feel like my computer has a 2.6 GHz Processor and 8 GB 1600 Mhz Memory. My downloads folder also constantly has the loading bar under it; it goes away when I remove it from the dock and replace it, but appears again after downloading one thing.

This is really frustrating when I got a new Macbook so that I wouldn't have to deal with these types of problems. They're all issues that I never encountered with my Macbook Air (mid-2011).

OS X Mavericks :: Can Cancel Update Completely After Previously Paused It?

I started the OS 10 Maverick update and needed to pause it to do other work more efficiently.  After I read some of the 3, 2, and 1 star reviews I decided I no longer want to update my computer at this time. Can I cancel it completely now that it is paused?

OS X Mavericks :: IMac Freezes Momentarily

Sep 7, 2014

My iMac has recently begun freezing momentarily. First it will freeze for a few seconds (while still allowing the mouse to move). It will resume, and then a minute or so later it will freeze again for a slightly longer duration. During this time, I can move the mouse, click on things, but nothing responds. Music and videos pause and then resume, websites stop loading, not able to type, etc. In fact, it just happened while typing that last sentence.

OS X Mavericks :: IMac Slow After 10.9.4 Update - Freezes Up

IMac (Intel) :: Mavericks Freezes At Login Screen?

Jun 2, 2014

My iMac started freezing at the login screen. I power up, the apple logo comes up (sometimes the blinking globe comes up for some reason) and then the apple logo flashes as if it restarted or something, and the loading indicator shows up for a few seconds. Then at the login screen everything looks normal (my picture is there and correct name of account is shown) when I type the incorrect password, the text box shakes appropriately. When I type the correct password, the loading indicator appears, the mouse turns into a beach ball, and it hangs until I hard shutdown. 

I know it's not a hardware issue because I just booted from the recovery partition and was able to view all my files in terminal. I would rather not reformat the hard drive. Is there a specific file that may be corrupted that I could delete and mavericks would automatically rebuild it?

OS X Mavericks :: MacbBook Pro Frequent Hard Freezes With Rainbow Wheel

Jun 23, 2014

Ive been getting this issue on my macbook quite frequently now; dont think its hardware related and occurs randomly at any time up to 3 times a day where the computer will slowly begin to freeze. 

It (usually) begins by my browser not being able to access a website (just a white screen in browser section), at this point im able to alt tab between apps for some time but eventually everything will hard freeze, same with the cursor which will turn into a rainbow wheel and also eventually freeze.  

Can only resolve this by power button for 6 secs (good thing it starts up in 5 seconds)

When i start and work with Logic Pro, it freezes after a while and there is no other way, but to force shutdown.I searched for some crash reports but i couldn't find one so i made screenshots of the terminal..I read on the internet some people had the same problem but with other programs, so i'm pretty sure that "Logic Pro caught burning CPU" is the problem. I got this problem since Mavericks 10.9.3, didn't have this with Snow Lion.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Freezes And Won't Relaunch When Attempting To Backup Using Time Machine

Jun 6, 2014

I have been backing up for years using Time Machine (TM) which uses a hard drive connected to my Time Capsule on my network. I use an external drive connected to the Time capsule.Every night, my MBP is scheduled to backup which it has done for years. The last successful backup was 4 days ago. It stopped working and when I tried to click on TM starting manually, it hangs up and freezes Finder. I try to relaunch Finder and it freezes the computer by taking all icons off my desktop. I can use mail and other programs but FINDER will not work. I have used disk utilities to check the drive AND repair permissions.

The only way I can shut down is by holding the on/off button and then restarting. The computer starts up fine and works UNTILL I try to back up to TM again. The whole thing happens again. My O/S is regulary updated and I checked that too.

THere must be something corrupted or screwed up with the TM / Finder links.
