    After installing Lion my MBP has frozen 5 out of 10 times I have restarted it at the login screen. The spinning wheel shows up and the fan spins up to as the machine reaches a 100 degrees.

    Only solution is holding down the power button and shutting the machine completely off before attempting to start it again.

    Anyone else who have experienced the same problem?

    Something similar. Hangs on the Login screen seem to be frequent, although I have jarred my MBP back to life by opening and closing it and managed to log back in.

    I'm having the same issue. It's happening at least 50% of the time.

    How do problems like this make it to a general release??

    Same problem here (freeze, temp goes up, fans are spinning fast).

    Still no answer to this problem ?
