    Just wanted to throw another report/workaround for myself into the ring. Most of my freezes come after unlocking (a few here and there in normal usage also though). At home I use an external monitor, and I'm not sure where I got the idea, but unplugging/re-plugging in the displayport connector seems to get everything working again perfectly almost immediately. This even seems to work when I get random beachballs tabbing between apps.

     

    I have no idea how to test this out for those of you without an external monitor... and even if you do, I have no idea if this will work for you also. Definitely seems to be GPU related here though.

    I don't want to jump to any conclusions yet, but I want to give you a good news. Like mokap said it seems that 10.8.2 solves this. I don't have freezes anymore and no more artifacts in Mail. So if you don't want beta wait for couple of days it's gonna be out.

    Looks like I have this issue too. Awesome silence from Apple as per usual. At least I know it's a software issue and not a hardware issue.

    Second time this has happened on 2011 MBA & both times have occurred after 10.8.1.

    Hi again to everyone here!!...again the same problem, freezing started at 09:24:57 until 09:29:23 (I had to press the power on button), almost 4 minutes waiting for a clear recovery, but it never happened:

    After the last update to 10.8.1 (and before) this problem has been going randomly, sometimes I could work for 2 days without problems and sometimes this happens every day at any hour.

     

    Someone said in this forum new version 10.8.2 would solve this issue, but I dont know whether Apple is waiting to collect more issues before release a new version.  I think probably this problem could be happening to someone else in the world with a MacBook Pro / iMac / so on.. with Mountain Lion ..no just me or the people in this community....pls I think your comments may be echo inside Apple.....keep going commenting...

    it seems that not running Mail.app has fixed it for me. No freezes in a significant long time

    i don't know... i started seeing glitches in the mail app; text was distorted and it sometimes just showed lines of colors across the app.

    Since then i've been very careful about closing mail.app as soon as im finished my business and i have had no freezes ever since, knock on wood

    I also have this problem. 15" Retina macbook pro. Had Mail open when it hanged. Only thing working was the mouse/trackpad. Tried deleting the mail in Application Support and now we will see what happens. I'm on 10.8.1

    No, it doesn't. The problem is getting worse on my iMac. I got more freez up than 10.8 and 10.8.1. So disappointed.
