    So, since installing Yosemite beta my rMBP has just randomly freezed twice. I mean completely freezed so I had to restart the computer.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    I just had that about 30 minutes ago, only happened one time. On a Late 2013 15" rMBP. It happened right after quitting Diablo 3 so I assumed it had something to with that. I could still see everything perfectly, and pressing the power button quickly still logged me out, but I could not type my password. Had to power it off. Submitted the bug to Apple.

    Yeah sounds familiar. For me the first time it happened was when I launched Photoshop and second time right after opening a link on a website. I could still see everything perfectly and I was able to move my cursor but I couldn't do anything. So I had to power it off from the power button.

    Yes, I have this now and again and it's been there from DP1 right the way through to DP4. Typically when browsing in Safari. Probably happens about once a day.

    Not happening to me on my 27" iMac. Perhaps there's a commonality with those who are experiencing it, such as using earlier dev previews before PB1?

    Maybe it's time for those people to do a fresh install of Mavericks, then install their latest version of Yosemite?

    Restarts and freezes

    This now happens every few hours for me. Started happening from DP5 but I did go through all Yosemite prior versions.

    I was having this problem and it turned out to only happen when I used firefox.

    Are you using it?

    I had that yesterday as well. everything was frozen, you can move your mouse cursor but cannot do anything else. The only way to solve this is a hard reboot.

    Just started happening to me too on PB2.

    Random freezing every hour or so, sometimes more. Sound continues to play, and all my inputs during the freeze (the mouse still moves) are remembered when it unfreezes.

    (if I click a tab while it's frozen, it will go to that tab after it comes back, or if I click new tab 6 times while it's frozen, 6 tabs will suddenly open when it unfreezes)

    I actually JUST started getting them. Micro freezes every few minutes for at least 30-60 seconds. Audio keeps playing though.

    I had a random freeze this morning on DP 8. It locked up my entire MBP. I had to a hard restart.

    Reset you SMC settings then your PRAM and that should fix it. Worked for me. :)
