    I have had this happen TWICE within 4 days. Maybe I am an outlier but that doesn’t seem “rare” to me. This is my first Mac, and want to love it, but this hang up may prevent me from being able to.

      You are still fortunate. This freaking issue happens to me EVERYDAY and more than one time a day!

    This has happened to me three times… TODAY! pretty annoying.

    Could they still be using the old usb3/haswell c1 stepping which is widely reported during launch?

    ive had this mac for 3 days and its happened 3 times, though I do expect Apple will fix it soon (ish)

    If “rare” equals a frequency of 3 times within 1 hour, I don’t want to know what “occasional” means in Apple terms…this is more than pretty annoying IMHO.

    Has happened to me 4 times in past week (since purchase). For me this was a very expensive investment and the issue of freezing has more than taken the gloss of the purchase. Apple need a fix quickly or mine is going back.

    It’s happening to me right now. I’m on a tight deadline and closing the computer does not seem to be working. Any other suggestions???

    I just bought mine two days ago. The first day was fine. Then today it froze twice within a 45 minute span.

    It happens to me every day at least three times a day. Usually when I am doing something dumb like reading the news or facebook.

    This has happened to me at least 5 times since I first got it. I was in the middle of a complex trade when it froze just recently [IN FACT IT JUST HAPPENED AS I WAS WRITING THIS POST] Not so rare…..I hope this is a mission critical issue with Apple by now.

    Happens to me once a day or so. Note that there’s a very easy temporary fix: just connect something by USB. E.g. a USB drive, your iPhone, an external mouse. Anything. This will prevent the problem from happening.

    Check software updates. It looks like Apple has released a firmware update to address this problem.

    I’ve had this happen quite often, but today, after closing the laptop to “fix” the problem, when I reopened the laptop, the screen was black (like I had shut it down) and did not respond when I clicked the mouse, keys and even the power button. I closed it for a bit, reopened it, had a screen up, but still an unresponsive mouse, and after repeating this process several times, I eventually forced shutdown and restarted a few minutes later. This is EXTREMELY alarming. Has anyone else had this problem?

      Mine (13″ retina 16GB ram) froze upon connecting iPhone and opening iTunes … putting it to sleep after didn’t help. I had to do a forced shutdown …. not happy at all with that. I cannot afford it to freeze like that as I plan to use for live performance. My gf’s 3 year old 13″ pro never had any issues like that … go figure. If it happens again I will simply return it.
