Hey All - I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I have an Early 2009 Pro, 6GB RAM, 10.8.5. The last month, it starts freezing under two conditions: Just out of sleep mode (from the night before); or Just booted-up, first thing in the morning. I have about 3-minutes after booting/waking that it's fully functional and works like a charm, after that, it just freezes regardless if it's doing something or just sitting with a fresh desktop. I have to do a hard shutdown and reboot. After that, for the rest of the day it's all good and there are no other issues or freezing. I've scanned the HD and it reports as good with no bad sectors. I haven't installed any new software. I have even put a new hard drive with a clean install of 10.8.1 on it. The only thing that I've put on the clean install is my contacts, email, and the driver for my Epson WF-500 (no apps, no documents (that's on another HD), no updates). It's still freezing. It will freeze whether I have email running or not. I am at a total loss as what to do next. I love, love, love my Mac Pro and am not wanting to upgrade to a pvc pipe. Any thoughts?
