Since installing Lion on my MacBook Pro, I have had lockups regularly, where the screen just freezes. Sometimes the cursor still moves, other times it doesnt. Havent been able to figure out any definite similarities as to what I am doing when it happens, but most of the time I'm just using Safari and a page is loading up, the beachball pops up and its usually all downhill from there....if I see it spinning for more than a few seconds, a lockup usually follows. The only "fix" is to restart. I have also had 2 Kernel panics. The first mentioned CPU 2, the second mentioned CPU 1. I have the error messages saved at home. I went through and used Disk Utility to verify and repair permissions. Then I had it verify the disk and it told me that it was corrupt and needed to be repaired so I restarted, held command+r and got to the Lion launch screen where I again ran Disk Utility and repaired my disk. It successfully repaired it, fairly quickly. Ran verify disk and verify permissions again before logging back into Lion with no issues. Within a few hours I had the second Kernel Panic that I mentioned above, where the screen just glazes over and the box pops up that says the computer needs to be restarted. Can anyone offer any insight on what the hell is going on or what I can do to help resolve the issue(s)? This is just awful. I never had a single freeze/lock up or problem with this MBP prior to installing Lion, and since it has just been constant issues - I feel like I'm using Windows! I hoped that the disk repair would solve my problems, but I don't know if it did. I havent had any of the standard freezes since last night so MAYBE those will stop since repairing the disk - but the kernel panic definitely isnt good news. I had an external hard drive connected at the time and I think only had Safari open. I was in the middle of typing an e-mail in the online gmail client when it happened. This SEEMS to be all Lion related issues...as I said, I had no issues at all prior to installing Lion so its hard to believe that it could all of a sudden be hardware issues. I don't know if I should setup an appointment at the Apple Store for issues with the computer or if this is definitely a Lion issue that I'll just have to be patient with until some updates come out...I'll tell you what though, this is making me wish I had just stuck with Snow Leopard. Wondering how difficult it would be to downgrade back to Snow Leopard (?) Thoughts?
