    When my MBP woke up after some time of sleep it started to freeze repeatedly after some seconds of usage. I restarted my Mac and reset SMC and PRAM several times, but the freezes didn't stop. After that I formatted the OS X partition and tried to re install it, but even when installing the system it keeps freezing and lasts for hours showing the same remaining time.

    However, when I use Windows on Bootcamp it wont freeze, so I guess that it's not a hardware problem.

    Does someone have a suggestion of something I could do to solve the problem?

    Thanks

    Of course!

    Macbook Pro 2013 13" mid 2012, 8GB RAM DDR3 - Kingston (I don't remember exactly the model, but it's one made for Macs), 512GB SSD Kingston V300.

    Is there some other details that could help?

    A 3rd party SSD? That could be your problem.

    Who knows with the V300. Kingston have been selling some utter dross recently with the previously respected V300 model name on it.

    But if the problem was on the SSD, why would it be working perfectly on Windows?

    Old firmware, ongoing garbage collection, lack of TRIM support?

    Windows 7 will happily use TRIM on any drive advertising support, unlike OS X.
