I have a Macbook Pro from summer 2010, 2.66 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo. I have never before had any problems with this computer--I've had it for just over a year and it's always worked like a dream. Since installing Lion, my computer has been freezing, the screen turning grey, and then the whole computer "resuming" even though I didn't shut it down. What's strange is that it is not when I'm trying to do something that might normally freeze the computer--typically I've just been in the middle of a plain Word document typing at work when it freezes and "resumes"/restarts. Is anyone else having this issue?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)

    I'm using an early 2008 iMac with Lion, and would have to agree with you that Lion's got some issues.  From what I can tell, based on these forums, is that this OS is on par with all the bugs present when Apple released their Leopard operating system.


    My experience so far has been mostly pleasant. I've had Safari lock up twice, but really nothing else while in operation.  I have experienced considerable trouble waking the iMac from a screen saver mode, though.  In my case, I'm using an iPhoto screen saver, and, when I try to "wake" the iMac, the screen saver stops animating, but nothing else.  What's strange is that the login options are "underneath" the photos, and I have to "reveal" the login options by "painting" over them with the mouse to reveal them.


    All in all, it's an "OK" upgrade, but I think it's VERY processor and/or graphic card intensive.
