My Imac 2011 is freezing more and more often and I can't identify any pattern or software that causes it.

Can you help me identify the problem?


Thanks in advance,


iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

    Hi ...


    Booting in Safe Mode  deletes system caches thay may help.


    A Safe Mode boot definitely takes longer than a normal boot so be patient.


    After you boot in Safe Mode you'll see the Desktop.


    Click the Apple menu icon top left in your screen. From the drop down menu click Restart.


    And check to see how much free space there is on the startup disk.


    Right or control click the MacintoshHD icon. Click Get Info. In the Get Info window you will see Capacity and Available. Make sure there's a minimum of 15% free disk space.


    If booting in Safe Mode didn't help and there's enough free disk space, use Lion Recovery to repair the startup disk if necessary, or reinstall the Mac OS X.
