    HI everyone, I'm getting this issues quite often now and it's getting really annoying for me. The things is if I kind of play some games or watch a movie and mac starts to half freeze. Not entirely because I can still move the cursor and clicking but the dock and the whole system kind of slow down and not responding at all.The only thing I can do is to restart the mac to fix it. Logging out is not helping as well.

    The first video is showing the issues:

    This is when I restart and it's back to normal. You can tell the difference.

    Can some experts out there explain to me what the issue is and any way to fix it.

    This same kind of crap has been happening to me ever since upgrading to Mavericks too. Mavericks is definitely the Vista of OS X... Really disappointed lately.

    People have been saying that since SnowLeopard, and yet every version of OSX has been very popular.

    OP,
    Do you have any utilities loaded?
    Did you try issuing them killall Finder command in the terminal to see if that helps.

    tbh, I'm on Mavericks and I've never seen this happen on my machine and also this is the first I've seen it being reported here.

    If you don't want to mess with terminal initially, look for the wayward process in Activity Monitor and kill it there. I do that for Finder every so often when it gets a bit bogged down.
