    I have a hackintosh running Yosemite with 10.10.1. For some reason it just randomly shuts down on its own about once/twice a day. It seems to be when I am using Google chrome. Do you think the issue is Google chrome with Yosemite or some kind of hardware problem (RAM, Hard drive etc). Thanks for any help on this issue.

    It's unlikely you'll find the help you need on these forums as there are too many possible causes for OS X issues on non-Apple hardware.

    In the Chrome advanced settings try turning off "Use hardware acceleration". If this stabilises things then it's a graphics/driver issue.
