    So my Macbook pro started to stall for 10 seconds or so every few minutes beginning yesterday. Like I am just surfing the net, and it freezes completely for 10 seconds, than everything is back to normal. I don't know what to do to remedy the problem.

    I have Applecare so I could send it in, but wondering first if anyone has had this problem and knows a quick fix before I send it in.

    I'm having the same problem and came here to get an answer. The problem started up the past week or so, and was never there before.

    And I'm not running any programs that I wasn't before.

    this has been happening to me for such a long time and i have no idea on how to fix it. i have just given up on this problem as none of the solutions mentioned online help. i will do a full system erase and install soon to see if it helps.

    Have you installed all the latest software updates? I used to have this problem and a firmware update solved it.

    your sig says you have a 500gb harddrive. did you install this yourself? is it a drive that has shock protection? if so, this is incompatible with the MBP sudden motion sensor. you can disable it by typing in terminal
