    Anyone else install Sierra and find your Mac now crashes/hangs 2-3 times per day. It keeps happening to me and I'm wondering if I'm the only person and maybe I need to install from scratch instead of doing as an upgrade ?

    Hangs

    You're not alone. When something stops responding, use the key chord for sysdiagnose. Include the end result in a bug report to Apple.

    Crashes

    In Terminal, enter the following command; be prepared to enter your admin password:

    sudo nvram boot-args="-v keepsyms=y"

    Then restart the Mac. After the next kernel panic (crash of the operating system occurs) there'll be relevant information in the backtrace in the .panic file.
