    If Apple was pretending not to know they were lying. just uninstall Mt Lion and get your money back! It was easy took half as long as the initial mt lion download to restore my system from the pre mt lion time machine.

    I strongly believe that Apple is aware of this disaster. But this is not the real issue. I think that Mountain Lion is far from being finished product even if we disregard something like this. Personally I will wait for 10.8.2 at least. Currently I mitigated damage by downgrading to Lion, after all it's not a big difference, except Lion works

    I've had the disastrous freezing issue and think I might have found the culprit on mine at least. I turned off Photostream, which had a slew of errors in Console. Also I had backup software running (CrashPlan) and it seems to have been running into some I/O issues, but only when it's running. I contacted them about that.

     

    But when it crashes your best bet is to look at the Console log for when it crapped out.

    If I close the cover it will not wake up.  Have to ALWAYS hard reset.

    Hmm well when you start it back up, check the console log for that time and it will show you something that might give you a hint.

    Hi. I'm having the same problem. I have an IMac circa late 2007. It's freezing up too. So far, it's happened three or four times since I upgraded from Lion to Mountain Lion on July 31st. Thankfully, it hasn't frozen more than that, so I'm crossing my fingers. But I have some important documents to work on and I guess I'm going to have to save every minute or so in case I lose some of it to a crash.

     

    I do have questions though: Does forcing the computer to shut down by holding the power button mess up any of the software or the hard disk in general? Should I run Disk Utility or some other program after every time I force the computer to shut down?

     

    Also, someone said that it's possible, after your computer freezes and you reboot, to have a window display asking to send info of the crash report to Apple. I haven't seen such a window. Is there a way to activate it?

     

    Thanks.

    I haven't seen any of those crash report windows myself .  The only way that I'm aware of is to restart it the same way you've been doing it .  That's what Apple has told me every time I've been on the phone with them .  Read my earlier post about this issue being sent to the engineers as of 3 hours ago . They are aware of it NOW if they weren't already .

    VERY interesting about 1 Password there -  I'd suggest those of us who have 1Password installed follow those instructions and see if it helps.

     

    Also v interesting what you say, Mirsky, about your 2007 iMac - the frequency of your crashes sounds v similar to mine and not as frequent as some other people's here.

     

    There might perhaps be several different issues here...

    This sounds very much like an issue we've tracked back to the Transmit menu bar app. Disabling the Transmit menu bar applet will fix the issue.

    Please read the WHOLE thread -- important details are near the end...

    So far, so good! The repair permissions seems to have helped. No idea why. I'm not a tech-head in that way. I haven't, however, dared to open Safari. I'm going to look at the issue with Safari and 1Pass and do the fix per the instructions.

    Permission repair was of not help in my case and I did not have the Transmit. This is a problem, directly, with the video drivers and Nvidia cards in the machines.

     

    I have a solution, the same that was used when Lion after 10.7.2 had a problem, is to disable the Nvidia graphics until there is a fix. There is a program called "gfxCardStatus" which will allow you to lock the machine into the integrated graphics.

     

    Since I switched to that I've had no crashes. This is for certain not a long term solution as only using the integrated card is limiting.

    Do a clean install of your Mountain Lion. That worked for me. I haven't experienced freezing since. Make sure to backup your data first before making a clean install.
