I'm having this same problem (Mac OS X Server 10.7.5 on a 2007 Mac Pro). Screen freezes up, sometimes graphics get wacky (elements disappear, etc.), and while you can still see the cursor (at least partially), nothing responds. The machine is still working otherwise: you can SSH into it, mail and DNS still works, etc.

I'm having the same issue with my 2012 iMac. After the update it just keeps crashing. I uninstalled Chrome because I thought that was the main issue but it's still going on. Checked ram and HD for errors and everythihg looks good.

I'm not at home right now, but have you tried to do a SMC reset ?
Edit : Oh, and BTW, did you have just black screen ? Or did your mouse still work and finder is stuck ?

I have tried but it still keeps crashing. I just get a message computer has to be shutdown. Sometime I can move my mouse and that's about it and then I can't open any programs when that happens. There is a lot of crash files since 9/29/12 I will just have to keep going thru them until I find something.

Well as this post suggest, I'm pretty sure there is an issue with 10.7.5. I've got some problem too since this update.
Could you tell us a little more about your iMac? Which GPU do you have? Did you add some RAM to your iMac?

This seems to be also happening without Chrome or iTunes loaded. Now with Lotus Notes and Safari. Sigh. Seems to be not application related. A system freeze also seems to be often preceeeded by the processor fan increasing speed.

I make a clean install of Lion (my iMac is in 10.7.0 so) and I still got the same problem.
I've just done a SMC, which doesn't seem to solve my issue.
Apple please, do something I can barely use my mac since the update.

Here are the specs for my iMac:
2.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with 6MB on-chip shared L3 cache
4GB (two 2GB) of 1333MHz DDR3 memory
AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics processor with 512MB of GDDR5 memory
I uninstalled Chrome because it started with that. That did not fix my issue. Looks like I will have to reimage which is not COOL at all. At least with Win 7 I can rollback updates. Can't use my computer because of a system update. They should give you a free call because their software is what broke it in the first place.

Thanks for the info, I'm still thinking this is a software BTW I'm gonna try to get rid of 2 of my 4 RAM chips and see, on this week end If I can't see this problem solves...
BTW, a sign or an answer from the staff would've been appreciated.

This 100% software update that is causing this issue. I just don't want to pay $19 for a phone call to have someone tell me to reimage my machine and I don't have time to take it to an Apple store and my computer is covered for the 1year support. Good luck.

Well good luck to you too.
I'm still on a 10.7.0, but I got the feeling that my iMac is freezing preciselsy every 60 minutes... this kinda weird, does somebody notice that also ?

Just got back to my MacBook and still crashing. Here's my video info:
Intel HD Graphics 3000:
Chipset Model: Intel HD Graphics 3000
VRAM (Total): 512 MB
Vendor: Intel (0x8086)
Device ID: 0x0126
Revision ID: 0x0009
Have 16 GB of aftermarket RAM but that's not causing it. I upgraded RAM a long time before this problem ever crept up. Really it's just the 10.7.5 upgrade.
