My Macbook Pro reboots after a memory leak every two hours

Hey everybody. I'm having a problem with my MacBook Pro (retina, mid-2012), where he is recovering in market (usually after gel). In this case only (so far) while using Adobe Illustrator CC 2015 (to date). I also use a Wacom tablet (intuos 4, with latest drivers), drawing, which can also be the culprit.

This happened with Yosemite, so I had upgraded to El Capitan - that does not solve the problem.

I apologize if the problem is with myself! I get that this problem is probably the fault of Wacom, Adobe or myself - I just want to see what you think Mac-heads.

Thanks a lot, a lot in advance for any advice - I appreciate any help I can get.

The report I get, when restarting is as follows:

Mon 4 Jan 20:19:13 2016

  • Why my Macbook Pro hangs for a few seconds every time that I unlock it?


    After the update (10.11.2 (15 c 50)), my Macbook Pro hangs for a few seconds every time that I unlock it!

    Even after rebooting, it's always the same problem.

    I have the MacBook Pro (retina, 15 '', Ende 2013)

    Thank you for your answers, I would appreciate all comments regarding this issue.

    Reset the PRAM.

    Reset the SMC. Choose the method for "on Mac Laptops with non-removable battery.

    Boot mode safe.

    If this does not help, run EtreCheck and post the report here.

  • MacBook Pro slow and stop, memory or HARD drive or motherboard?

    These last few months my Macbook Pro medio 2012 begins to slow down. I was thinking of a resettlement but has not had the time yet.

    Last month, he really slow started to freeze and stops instantly. It reboots and then I get a gray screen saying with the icon (a card with a questionmark in there) that it cannot find the boot disk drive. I close it again with the button and restart, then it starts normally. This would have me believe it has something to do with my HARD drive or the motherboard, but then again I'm not a tech guy so I guess just really. Then I got the idea to do a test of material, with this error as a result: 4MEM/62/40000000: 0x81d97590

    After searching the Web, it would mean that my memory would be bad/broken. I read in another post to download an app called 'Remember' which tests your RAM. I tried yesterday and it worked fine, nothing was wrong. But today I did once again when my Macbook was slow functioning again and went to do some other stuff. When I came back my Macbook has a black screen, a Word to insert a boot disk. I just stopped and restarted again and started normally. It is a little slow to clear grey screen with the apple logo.

    So my question is, does anyone know where the shoe pinches, RAM, HARD drive or the motherboard? Will also contribute to a reinstall? Can I check if my RAM is always placed properly or is maybe dirty? I use an application called memory monitor for clean working memory from time to time. I'm updating to El captain, wanted to do it instantly when I want to do a clean install on my mac, but I think I'll wait with that I know where the problem lies.

    Really hope someone can help me!

    Kind regards

    an application called 'Remember' which tests your RAM. I tried yesterday and it worked fine, nothing was wrong.

    This is not the right way to think about memory problems. When the test of the RAM ALL said that there is a problem, it's the truth. RAM problems are very difficult to isolate, and a diagnostic runs, but can't find the problem, if NOT "nothing was wrong" which is "he cannot find the problem immediately."

    This isn't a mystery. DIMM RAM, not another thing is more likely to fail. Then you could try Rember running all night, you could try to remove one of your DIMMs and see if chess stops, you can try to get a new DIMM and see if they work better.

  • MacBook Pro died after using 2 external displays

    On Monday this week, I got a new MacBook Pro. I downloaded Logic Pro X that I use with my keyboard plugged into one of the USB and my audio interface (hearer iD14) plugged into the other. I also use a LG monitor and a Samsung. To do this, I connected a KÖNIG hdm-switch on the HDMI from the MacBook and then inserted two monitors in the switch. It's all very well worked for several hours until the screen went all weird and then the computer is completely dead and it is still very, very dead. I tried now hold the power button for 10 seconds, but that does not help. I also tried Ctrl + alt + shift + power, releasing and pressing the power button once again, without a bit of luck. I tried to load, what does not work either.

    2.2 GHz Quad - Core Intel Core i7, 6 MB of cache L3 (turbo boost up to 3.4 GHz)

    16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM memory

    256 GB of flash storage

    OS X pre-installed (not sure if Sierra was installed when I start the computer for the first time, so I don't really know and now I can't check, so...)

    As the computer is dead, I wasn't using the charger. Then causing do this? Or is it because I used the hardware (monitors, switch) that are not Apple? Or is it simply not recommended using external monitors with MacBook Pro? I really don't understand if I fried it by using it in a bad way, or if I just had a bad luck to get a product with property damage or something.

    I really need to use two monitors, so I hope that's not the problem...

    Someone at - he experienced something similar to this?

    Post edited by: mlnrvlton

    I would resume, they are intended to support two monitors im pretty sure and I use mine with a dell monitor and it is not a problem.

    I would say that what you have done is proper use of the machine, so says apple is not the Dell XPS 13 build 3 screens 4K...

  • MacBook Pro crashed after loading the Sierra

    Charge of Sierra (September 22, 2016) on my MacBook Pro (early 2011) and now it crashes.  The computer was working fine before the update.  Can I cancel the new operating system or how can I fix the problem?

    Difficulty installing Sierra

    Try each of them in order. A test to see if the computer works properly:

    1. Reset the PRAM
    2. Reset the controller (SMC) system management
    3. Start the computer in Safe Mode, and then restart normally. It's slower than a standard home.
    4. Repair the disk by booting to the HD recovery immediately after that the chime press the command and R keys until the Utility Menu appears. Choose disk utility and click on the continue button. Select the withdrawal (usually Macintosh HD) volume entry of the list to one side.  Click first aid button in the toolbar. Wait the fact button appear. Disk utility and return in the Utility Menu. Restart the computer from the Apple Menu.
    5. Reinstall OS X by booting from the Recovery HD using the command and R keys. When the Utility Menu appears, select reinstall OS X and then click on the continue button.
  • MacBook Pro crashed after update to macOS Sierra

    After I tried to update my MacBook Pro for macOS Sierra, this screen came:

    In case you can't read it, it says "'.

    After restart my MacBook Pro, he asked for my Wi - Fi connection information, so I typed in it and it showed a loading bar. Then came to this screen:

    I didn't know which option to choose, what is called Apple Care to help make a choice. They said to choose 'Reinstall OS X' so I did. Then my screen says something like "click and drag to the browser that you want to download in" but nothing has popped up.

    I don't know what is happening with my computer. Hard drive failure? This update was not the largest update so I don't know why all this is happening.

    If you have any ideas or solutions, please respond! That would be incredible!

    Thank you guys!

    It seems that your Mac can not find the system disk. It seems that the drive has failed and your Mac is now in recovery mode.

  • MacBook pro issues after updating to Mac OS siera

    I have problems with the new model MBP retina 15 inch Mid 2015 with Force Touch.

    Even I have the same problem. Prior to Macos Siera update everything worked well. After OS update am unable to run my java applications with netbeans. If I start to run any project in netbeans after a time tomcat server does not start and displays tomcat port XXXX is already in use and could not start.

    As well as the sound noisy fan and macbook pro gets hot on the back side. If I stop NetBeans sound fan stops and the macbook to cool in a few minutes.

    After the closure of the tomcat server netbeans IDE does not stop. If you put localhost:XXXX on browser it shows success of tomcat installation page.

    Help us please if you have an idea to solve this problem.

    Having the same problem also.

    Updated since a Yosemite perfectly work for OS X for this!

    The same phenomenon occurs when you try to start Glassfish and vampire tetra using netbeans. Themselves (Glassfish and Payara), they work perfectly well if started via the terminal. I don't really know where there is discord.

  • MacBook pro grey after sleep screen

    I have documented on this problem for some time now on the MacBook screen goes black or rather a visible backlight gray but black screen after being in standby mode. I tried the reset SMC and command + Option + P + R. I am owner of a mid 2014 13 "macbook pro retina.

    Hi Youngnn,

    Welcome to Apple Support communities. It is my understanding you are MacBook Pro shows a gray screen after being in mode 'sleep'. I want to help get this resolved with you.

    You did a great job with the steps taken so far. At this point, I recommend this test in safe mode. Start in safe mode prevents the opening and start-up items to open automatically. Safe mode also allows your Mac to conduct some controls. If the problem does not occur in safe mode, it is possible to a startup item or logon are the cause. Please follow the steps below to start in safe mode:

    1. Start or restart your Mac.
    2. As soon as you hear the startup tone, hold down the SHIFT key.
    3. Release the SHIFT key when you see the logo Apple appears on the screen.

    After the Apple logo appears, this may take longer than usual to reach the login screen or your office. This is because your Mac performs a check of directory of your drive to boot in safe mode.

    To leave safe mode, restart your computer without pressing any keys during startup.

    Try safe mode if your Mac does not end commissioning

    If the problem persists in safe mode try this test to another user. This will help determine whether specific user files, settings and apps cause this problem. Please use the link below to test in an another user account and additional steps:

  • MacBook Pro slow after connecting

    I can't explain it well enough, but let's try...

    I connect to my username very well. But after the signing, I get the spinning ball. Logging in can take a few seconds, or as long a minute before the desktop appears. It is random when the system decides to catch up and to really start to work. Sometimes it will happen quick office and then I get the spinning ball.

    I checked / things:

    • Made new user account - same results
    • Bought the new show always the same hard - one SSD drive.
      • A new OS settled with new hard drive as well
    • Considered the start to each user account - there is no.
    • has started with disabled WiFi.

    I think that's about it. Just curious if anyone has had similar problems. Basically, the time it takes to have a normal operation of the computer is considerably more time that it has been in the past. It's almost to the point of being unusable because it's so frustrating just to connect and wait.

    Thanks for any help!

  • MacBook Pro model A1286 15 "Memory Upgrade

    I currently model A1286 15 "with two locations of memory both holding 2 GB (4 GB) cards.  I would spend my two 8 GB cards (16 GB) memory is this possible, or is the maximum memory two cards of 4 GB (8 GB)?

    Model MacBook Pro done in 2011 and 2012 support 16 GB of RAM.

    Not sure, but for my macbook pro 13 "in apple maximum is 8 GB

    Im searching in the web, I have a mac macbook pro 13 "with 16 GB of ram and a samsung SDS evo

    Check an Applestore or an Apple authorized reseller for sure and buy your ram

  • What happens if my macbook pro 15 inch 2015 memory consumed all of the 16 GB of memory?

    My 15 2015 inches 2.5 GHz os x el capitan macbook pro i7 is about to consume all the 16 GB of memory, cache takes 10 GB while the ram is in 3. something Go, what will happen if he consumed all the 16 GB of memory. My mac auto deletes cached data or (sharp RAM) memory when they are volatile or do I have to do it manually? I know by removing all the help cant cache I can get in trouble it's why I don't want to remove it manually? Please answer me terrified right now im like his food to the top of my RAM. What to do or leave this thing on my mac? Thanks a lot for your kind answers in advance.

    The operating system is responsible for the allocation of RAM.  Nothing bad will happen.  The worst case, it is that treatment will be slowed down a bit.  Relax and use your MBP.


  • MacBook pro reboots randomly

    If anyone can help me I would be very grateful!

    For months and months now, my macbook has used to revive at random. Sometimes, he won't do much or for centuries, but other times he'll do dozens of times in a row!

    Obviously, it's very frustrating because I can not any work done when you're having an of it is a few minutes (1 h).

    I tried a lot of different things, the list went on and on (including tons of random things like the font book disabling and start in safe mode), things that I tried recently that have been recommended by apple are the navram reset and reset the SMC, but to no avail!

    I don't really know what caused his start happening but I remember it started before my sabbatical a year ago, (that's what threw me I don't remember what I had just done, but I think it was an update or something?)

    Sometimes restarts it seem really random, but this will often happen if I return a web browser and a start to scroll left or right, often when I move and often when I left my mac for a bit, then return to start working again.

    It comes to my crash report, can we make any sense?

  • MacBook Pro 2012 Rainbow ball of death every few seconds

    Hello world.

    I have known shift problems with my Macbook Pro 13 inch 2012. I have IE installed Capitan. I don't know what the problem is, but I did a lot of things to try to solve this. I can post more details if necessary, but I am currently typing on my macbook which is incredibly laggy and it's hard to type anything.

    (1) repair disk permissions

    (2) checked Activity Monitor and RAM and CPU appear to well (and I see that when no application is opened)

    (3) reinstalled El Capitan, after erasing

    (4) zero applications open except Safari as I type this

    (5) have tried to do first aid on Macintosh HD in disk utility, but the disc is fine

    (6) Ran Apple Hardware Test and no material turned out to be problematic

    (7) allow indexing full spotlight, but just in case, as he stopped to work just to see if it would help

    (8) to reset the SMC and LANDAU

    (9) I have a backup on my external hard drive

    Lag problems (where the wheel of the Rainbow of death appears and then goes away after 30 seconds or more) still occur even if an activity very very minimum occurs. This shift comes once in a while, it's something unbearable. GAL produced any application that I use (eg. Chrome, Safari, Finder, system preferences, etc.).

    I have a log from the Console that appeared like I barely did anything in Safari, come on a browser window, but he started trolling very poorly. I can't read the newspapers and even if I tried, I don't see what the problem with my laptop.
