    Anyone's 2011 iMacs freezing randomly after Lion upgrade? Because mine is. I did a hardware test and resulted in no problems found (I do have Crucial RAM installed, but they never gave me problems prior to Lion install). I also did a repair permissions in disk utilities and it went smoothly, but the random freezing persists. Had to hard reboot twice today.

    Is anyone else experiencing this, or might have a clue what the issue is? It isn't the 1 TB recall either (I have the base 21", with 500 GB of HD, no SSD).

    That's exactly the problem actually, now that I come to think of it. I did try to play Quicktime when it first froze, and then another Flash video online (Jon Stewart) when it froze the second time.

    Thanks for the thread, going to read it now...

    No,
    I have a iMac 27", just installed the Lion the other day. No problems whatsoever. The machine is running even faster and smooth.

    RF,

    Flash freezing my iMac is getting ridiculous. Flash videos are so prominent on the internet, it's near impossible to avoid.

    What is the deal? I have the latest Flash updated according to Chrome and their main website. Is it just an Apple thing? I know Apple isn't keen on Flash, but it's near impossible to use an Apple computer without it whenever a video plays. This is my third one today.

    I thought things were supposed to "just work."
