I have a Macbook Pro 10,1 (Mid 2012) running 10.10.2. Over the last few months, I have had issues with the system suddenly hanging - mouse won't move, keyboard does nothing, and the clock is stopped. I have to hold down the power button and restart the computer when this happens.

I have been experiencing these freezes ranging from daily to weekly. There is no consistent action that reproduces the freeze on demand. At some point in the last few months, though, I did switch to Safari from Chrome as my primary browser because the battery life seems so much better when using Safari. I've been doing a project over the last week that is dependent on Chrome, and as such haven't been using Safari, and have had no freezes. In retrospect, I think the freezes began happening when I started using Safari regularly.

I'd prefer to not have to choose between using Safari and having a stable system. Is anyone aware of issues like the one I'm experiencing? Any suggestions for further troubleshooting?

Edit 5/28/15:

I saved Console logs surrounding one of these freezes. When the computer froze, Safari was the frontmost app, and I was scrolling a page with 2-finger scroll on the trackpad. I then manually held down power to reboot.

  • I have had this exact same problem. I'm pretty sure it's also only been with Safari. I have a Late 2012 MBP Retina. This issue has persisted on two different SSDs with clean installs of Mavericks AND Yosemite. I've run every AST (and ASD OS and EFI) test multiple times, as well as Rember, Diskwarrior. Initially, during the thermal test in AST, I got an error (theta OH) and had to replace the heat sink, which enabled the computer to pass all tests. Yet the full system freeze occasionally persists. Mouse and screen freeze, and the computer auto-restarts after about 10-20 seconds. I'm going to no – user117642 Mar 10 '15 at 23:41

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.

Hope that this can help someone to think about a solution, I've about using Firefox to see if the issue persist or not, to isolate the issue for Safari.

Since the issues is seen for Google Chrome, it might be interesting to hear if you uses HTTPS when it happens?

Its probably an extension. You probably already know that already, but there's no advice on the internet aside from my own that has worked for me.

cd ~/Library/Safari/Extensions
rm [plugins you KNOW did not come from apple]

The next part is key, in fact, this may be the only necessary step:

nano Extensions.plist

Remove everything between <dict> and </dict>.
