Does your Mac freeze randomly? Does it freeze when you are using internet explorer or Firefox, playing games, watching a movie, moving between folders within finder, opening an application or browsing through your iTunes or iPhoto music library? Does your Mac freeze all the time, at startup or just after sleep or login? Being in the middle of an activity and suddenly the computer freezes is really sucked. Have you noticed that in general, everything is started to slow down on your Mac, the hard drive might become noisy from time to time, and you’ll keep seeing the “spinning beach ball” or the “rainbow wheel of death”? Crashes and freezes in OS X are really rare, but they happen. Fortunately, most of them can be resolved easily; and even though a crash or freeze may have any of numerous causes, the same procedure works for troubleshooting most of them.
Why is my Mac freezing? There’s a common reasons for your Mac freezing are such like: having too many programs running at the same time, having many programs all trying to use the disk at the same time, Your Mac doesn’t have enough memory or having many unneeded duplicate files on your Mac. Even though the problem has not been determined yet, the issue seems to be because of significant problems with merge the latest software types delivered by Apple with existing equipment. Some of the possible workarounds to solve this annoyance are covered in this article. First of all, put your Mac in “safe” mode. Computer slowdown may stop from certain poorly merge third party programs. In order to test the version, you must boot Macintosh in “safe mode”, which restricts these external objects from launching while the operating system boots.
While your Man is running under safe mode, check program installation. To do that, try to remove the software one by one and then see whether this fixes the issue. Most of the described annoyance tends to involve software that uses network algorithms to synchronize. A username may also cause application-related troubles, setting another account can test this. If the problem didn’t solve, try resetting the relevant applications. Complete Macintosh Disk Repair Sequence:
- Going back to an earlier Operational System version
- Making an Archive and Install check
- Repartitioning and reformatting the hard drive
Sometimes a Mac slows down when the screen is closed. You might close the cover when you set the MacBook into sleeping mode, or if when you are not working. The problem may originate in latest mode which MacBooks perform, known as “safe sleep”, where Macbook writes the contents of your RAM right to the hard disc. That is a security feature in those latest MacBooks; if the battery depletes completely when your MacBook stays sleep mode, the machine can still start over from the last recorded state as soon as you turn it on. Reclaim the main disk capacity taken by the safe sleep mode. You have to identify the directory which stores data which your laptop records to your hard drive from your Random access memory during Safe Sleep mode. You can safely delete this file, and save your Macintosh some important data capacity. The name of the directory is “SleepImage”.
