    I keep my iMac on at all times. It does have a screensaver - but no sleep enabled. When I travel I occasionally access it remotely.

    It is only about 2 months old and lately after all the (Apple) software upgrades, almost every morning I find it frozen.

    The only software that is set to run overnight is a Super Duper backup - but I have turned that off and it does not appear to be the culprit. Time Machine runs automatically.

    I searched and tried some solutions including repairing permissions and checking preferences.

    Is there a log somewhere that may help me identify what is causing the freezes?

    Thanks

    Check the Console. That's where all the system log files can be most easily read. This is in your Utilities folder.
