Fozii Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

Hello everyone,

 

I have the latest Mac Mini, purchased it about two months ago. Few days ago I updated to Mountain Lion, and my Mini keeps on freezing every hour or so while i'm on the internet, by freezing I mean I can move the cursor around but I can't click anything, and then when I keep on clicking the rainbow bubble pops up.

 

The weirdest part is that I can't even shut it down by keeping the power button pressed, the hard drive clicks once and it doesn't let you shut it down, so i have to resort to pulling the power cable out! This all started happening when I updated to Mountain Lion.

 

Any help would be appreciated!

 

Thanks.

    Open Activity Monitor in Applications>Utilities, select All Processes & sort on CPU%, any indications there?

     

    How much RAM & free space do you have also, click on the Memory & Disk Usage Tabs.

     

    Open Console in Utilities & see if there are any clues or repeating messages when this happens.

     

    In the Memory tab, are there a lot of Pageouts?

    Thanks for the reply!

     

    I've attached a screenshot of my System Memory usage for you, no Pageouts though.

    OK, it's not that, but sort on CPU% by clicking on that header, then also report what console says when these slowdowns are happening.

    Will do, thanks. At the moment CPU readings fluctuating between 1-10% with 94% idle, but I'll keep an eye on it next time. Might just do a clean install and see what happens if I can't find why it's freezing!

    open console in Applications>Utilities, check the system log for the date/time of the last problem for clues.

    Hi all.

    i have the  same problem since yesterday, My new mini freezes without having high CPU load or memory

    consumptions, no shut down possible only power button, i tried to keep it powered off for a while without

    the power cord plugged in and it seemed that he worked longer after, but also no heat problem  I use istat menues

    no high temperature to see. I had also problems immediately after installing Mountai lion with my external HD

    i had to restart several times that they were recognized but after it worked just the directory listing for the

    external HD was always very slow, and als the copy speed while backing up, it looks there is an I/O problem

     

    please help a.s.a.p

    Still crashing on me unfortunately, have resorted to using my MBP for now because I don't have time to re-format the Mini.

     

    Is a shame though, seems like most Mini's are getting this, making me regret updating now!

    Pulse1981,

     

    You have a Hard Disk Problem, have you booted from the Restore Partition & used Disk Utility to Repair the Disk?

    I have the same problem on a new Mini server bought in March. So far only happens when on the Internet but that can be coincidence. So far I CAN power down to reboot by holding down the power button for a 10 seconds or more. How do we notify Apple about this bug?

    Until then I'm reverting to Lion.

    Hi All, Hi Kevin,

     

    it's a shame, nothing is happening by Apple, I called support they do not have any idea, i had to buy a new Macbook Pro coz i'm not able to work, the MacMini does not run with Mountain Lion, it will freeze also

    not opening any Program, without Internet connection, latest when Screensaver starts.

    The same HD image on the Makbook is working perfectly, i just cloned it. To my opinion there is some

    problem in the I/O system handled by Mountain Lion, i have a 512 GB SSD and 16GB RAM installed on my Mini (Everything worked perfectly under Lion), but the other disks (external) are USB or Firewire, specially the Firewire drive started making strange noise at the moment i started using Mountain Lion, the same Drive works perfectly under Mountain Lion in the Macbook Pro.

    So i guess a Firmware update for the Mini is needed, but Apple should move. My Mini is just 6 months old.

    It is absolutely the first time since 5 Years that i have a problem with Apple and i have many Apple products,

    maybe this is why i feel disappointed. The voices for this problem are raising but still not enough i guess.

    It could be also a problem with some component like the I/O controller used in some Minis, of course these are just suppositions but i'm electronical engineer and have to deal daily with weird problems, LOL.

    BTW, I tried also a clean install on my Mini, the same result, the machine will freeze within one hour.

    I realize that could be hard to figure out what's happening, I can send my Mini to Apple support since I have a replacement now, so they could test it.
