    Hi all, I am running beta 2 on my MacBook Pro 13" Early 2011 with the default 4GB RAM, and 500GB HDD.

    Beta 1 ran amazingly on my device, but as of beta 2 I am having the following issues;

    - There is immense lag when waking the device from sleep, and constant pinwheels and such when I am trying to open apps for the first time

    - Black screens sometimes occur, and it awakens the display and everything lags almost to a complete stop, forcing me to shut down the Mac by holding down the power button.

    - Graphic glitches when I am on Finder sometimes leading to the black screen.

    I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this, or has a solution for this, (I updated via the Mac AppStore, so if I need to downgrade...I would probably need help on the process.)

    I'm experiencing none of these issues on my 15" mid-2012 rMBP. If this isn't your main device, I'd hold out for developer 3 which will probably come in a week and a half or so. As a side note, your MacBook only has 4GB ram and could use an upgrade like yesterday.

    I get a white screen (repaint issue) after connecting to a microsoft remote desktop (full screen in space) and coming back. I have to move the windows around to repaint it. Yes, other finder issues as well present. (MBP 14 16GB Ram, 2.8ghz)

    If you want to downgrade, you can use a TimeMachine backup, or boot to Command+R, Disk Utility erase disk, boot to option and install El Capitan DP 1 via USB, if you have one.

    I have noticed my rMBP is unresponsive for longer after waking from sleep on beta 2.

    Yes, a lot of unresponsive activity. I think I'll restore my Mac back to DP 1 if possible since I have a backup for it. But can I restore a DP 1 backup to Yosemite?

    When I wake my rMBP from sleep, I get a 5-10s delay before I can type my password into the unlock screen. The screen is fully loaded, its just that typing does nothing.
