Hi everyone, I'm new here and hoping to get some assistance please.

 

I updated from 10.8.4 to 10.8.5 today, and since then my MacBook Pro (circa 2008, but apparently compatible with this update) has just hung, at least twice.  Are there any known issues with 10.8.5 that might account for this?

 

I've done a Command-R restart and used Disk Utility to verify permissions on, and repair the built-in disk; Disk Utility reported that the disk was good, did not need to do any repairs.  (Did this once).

 

After a subsequent restart I my MBP hung again while I was using Finder and Preview.  The spinning blue ball goes solid, and both the magic mouse and the touchpad do not respond.  I'm actually a little surprised and rather hopeful now I've managed to get to this point.

 

I have a current Time Machine backup and Install OS X Mountain Lion.App (10.8.4) on a USB drive - just in case.

 

Thanks in advance

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)

    How large is you HD and how much space do you have left?

     

    How much RAM do you have?

    Lionel,  I hope you get this resolved, but if not, I really encourage you to get a Mac with more like 608 GB of RAM,

    because it really takes most of 4 GB to run Mountain Lion itself.  All the best.

    Bee, I think you meant to say 8 GB of RAM...with 608 GB who needs a hard drive

    Your Mac can accommodate 6GB of Ram, so you can upgrade, a bit.

    My Wifi stopped working after the upgrade - MacBook Pro - Circa Late 2008 - :-( still looking for a solution. Wifi remains turned off - even if detection kicks in and cannot find any networks around me. I was on wifi to download the upgrade and then restarted :-)

    Go to OWC, http://www.macsales.com or Crucial, http://www.crucial.com and check what they say your Mac will support.  Some will support more than Apple says.

     

    While ML will run with 4 GB of ram, a little more makes a big difference in the performance.

    If you have more than one user account, these instructions must be carried out as an administrator.

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:

    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)

    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.

    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.

    Step 1

    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select

    View â–¹ Show Log List

    from the menu bar.

     

    Enter "BOOT_TIME" (without the quotes) in the search box. Note the timestamps of those log messages, which refer to the times when the system was booted. Now clear the search box and scroll back in the log to the last boot time after  you had the problem. Select the messages logged before the boot, while the system was unresponsive or was failing to shut down. Copy them to the Clipboard (command-C). Paste into a reply to this message (command-V). Please include the BOOT_TIME message at the end of the log extract.

    If there are runs of repeated messages, post only one example of each. Don’t post many repetitions of the same message.

    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.

    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.

    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.

    Step 2

    Still in Console, look under System Diagnostic Reports for crash or panic logs, and post the entire contents of the most recent one, if any. In the interest of privacy, I suggest you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if present (it may not be.) Please don’t post shutdownStall, spin, or hang logs — they're very long and not helpful.

    There is one application that I know broke after installing 10.8.5 -- Skype.  Skype no longer recognizes the built-in camera on those Macs that have one.  Both Microsoft (Skype's owner) and Apple are aware of the issue and it's being worked.

     

    Here's more documentation:
