This isn't directly answering your question since I don't know of a way to disable the file cache mechanism in OSX. That being said, I can't think of a good reason WHY you would want to do so in the first place? What makes you so sure it is because of the file cache? The file cache is a dynamic thing in that it gets larger as you do more I/O with your disk, ...

I haven't experienced this, but I would highly recommend reinstalling the latest iOS (iOS 8.2) onto it, by using a computer with iTunes and hooking your phone to the computer with the USB data cable. In iTunes, it should detect an update available and ask if you would like to update. Go ahead and update it that way. If that doesn't work, manually download ...

I've experienced both the -112 and less often the -128 and submitted the error logs to engineering. I was told to contact AppleCare for hardware diagnosis and support. It's estimated that the logic board would be replaced for $300 so I'm letting it ride a bit to make sure it's really not software before repairing that one machine.

I went through the gyrations above and narrowed my problem down to issues with sound, so I removed or disabled every sound file & function I could. I also discovered that, after a DiskWarrior run, if I started in safe mode and ran the machine for a couple of days, when I returned to regular mode, the freezing problems had disappeared. BTW safe mode ...

I had the exact same problem for a while now and finally figured out how to fix it. My problem was directly related to 3-party menu icons though, FYI. Open the utility called Activity Monitor and select the offending applications (they will be red and say "not responding") one at a time. Then click the upper leftmost button with the X in it and select Force ...

I have the exact same issue, MBPr 2012, the issue started as periodically, and now is very persistent, happens several times every day. The solution is as stated to shut down the computer on the power button - the Microsoft Way! I can tell that you'll see it more when you work with Safari, and uses HTTPS pages, or just has 5-6 pages opened at a time. ...

Your MacBook isn't the weak link in the chain, it's your external hard disk. The 2011 machines don't support USB 3.0 so you're either using Firewire 800 or USB 2.0 - the fastest throughput you're going to see on FW800 is around 95MB/s for RAID 0 HDDs and SSD devices. More RAM will help with overall speed, 16GB is supported, but fitting an SSD and using it ...

I was using chrome too, when spotted this issue. But there is nothing about chrome, as was mentioned before this is caused by auto graphic card switching from Iris to Nvidia. I have checked that on MBP 2014 July, with the page given above. If auto graphic switch is on, freeze is happening, else - not, there is no difference which browser or application is ...

I have experienced the exact same issue since few days as well (AFAIR about 2 days ago), and am trying to find a solution. This is what my OSX Console log (Apps > Utilities > Console) looks like, just after selecting a program / document in spotlight results: 04/03/2015 14:29:27,288 WindowServer[202]: disable_update_timeout: UI updates were forcibly ...

I have installed a GPU driver from NVidia and I haven't had any freezes for a month. I have then switched back to the native driver and I got a freeze in less than a day. So I am fairly confident that a different driver fixes the issue. The driver installation procedure is not straightforward, but is well documented on Daniel Kramnik's website. First, go ...

I think it's been turned off. Is it possible that its got something to do with apple software update - Security update 2014-004? I managed to reinstall Lion seems ok for now. And I did not downloaded any security update, crsud is also not located in that directory yet.

Ok all, I had all the issues listed above & just wanted to toss it out the window. It would crash every 5 minutes & had the constant beach ball. I would have Terminal open & Finder was always 'not responding'. My iMac had 24gig ram, which is way more than the standard 8 it ships with. Well, all my issues went away when I maxed it out with 32gig. ...
