Did 10.11.5 fix your freeze problem?

Let's see what the state of this issue is.
Thanks for your time.

If you are referring to sudden, total freezes that last from several seconds to around half a minute, then yes, it still freezes. This is a window server bug that has been introduced in Yosemite and still hasn't been fixed. My original bug report is still marked as open.

I said 'no', but system freezes have never been common for me in El Capitan

The poll question should be "Does 10.11.5 still freeze, assuming you had freezes on 10.11.4?" or something like that.

Sorry can't change a poll once it has votes.
But I think then general idea is clear.

I've been using 10.11.5 on a Mac mini 6,1 since since its release and have not seen any freezes.

i got the dreaded big freeze...once, on a 10.11.4 beta. no issues since (but after all, 10.11.5 has only been out a few days...)

Problems should be expected in a beta release, beta testing is its purpose after all, this is why we don't use beta software in production environments.

really? you thought i didn't know that? :rolleyes: am merely pointing out that i experienced that crash, once, then. and that before and since, have not experienced it. so far, 10.11.5 has been stable here, but again, it's still pretty new (as a final release)...

Problems in a beta release go without saying.

I only had the freeze once; where the force touch trackpad wouldn't work. Granted I was watching porn at the time; I assumed it was related to that.:rolleyes:;):cool::p

Never had a problem since updating. Never really had one before either.

Seems that way to many people are voting even though they really never had the freezing issue, only people that actually had the freezing issue before 10.11.5 should have voted, now the results are wrong

Just experienced one freeze in 10.11.5 final.

Using FCPX, leave it on overnight to render / export 4x 4K video last night. On this morning, all I have is a black screen and a spining wheel. Luckily all video export successfully. However, by checking the load average history, there was something demanding 450 threads for 7 hours.

I realise that the system occationally has this kind of demand for a short period of time, which may freeze the Mac for few seconds, but it's the 1st time I've seen that occupy the CPU 100% for more than 7 hours. However, i can still login my Mac and move the mouse pointer via remote control (same black screen on the client side), the system still respond to hot key, I can use Command + Control + power button to restart the Mac, no need to perform a force shut down. So, not 100% frozen.

I had the freezes with 10.11.3 and 10.11.4, but haven't seen one yet with 10.11.5. However, I'm not using that machine as often as I used to (my new main machine has never exhibited the problem) so the results aren't conclusive and therefore I haven't voted.

10.11.5 has -never- "frozen" on me, and I went through all of the public betas with the same results...

No freezes with 10.11.2, 10.11.3 or 10.11.4 on my two Mini and iMac. The first 10.11 was a nightmare for me. Everything is so stable and smooth under 10.11.4 I'm probably forgo 10.11.5 for now. Why fix it if it ain't broke...
