!! FIX: Mac (MBP) beach ball / freezes

Hi all,

 

I have noticed the beachball issue as well.. However, when I do a PR reset (alt/option + command + P + R on power up, wait for the Mac Sound at least twice), it all goes away and works like a dream. If you have this issue, try it!! I had this after 0002 and had it now after 0009, but gone after PR reset.

 

Good luck!

You should mention what kind of Mac you are using. On an iMac the SMC memory is reset with the same keyboard combination, too, while on other Macs this needs an extra shortcut.

I also have a MacBook Pro 15" (2010) and the PR reset has cleared up my beachball problems when it did not seem as though the SSD would wake up after the machine had gone to sleep and was awaken.  Thanks for the suggestion, as i typically forget about this trick.
