In Mac OS X operating system, system freeze or hang is a situation where you can not use any application, nor even the operating system. Your system completely stops responding and you need to shut it down improperly. The problem may occur due to damaged preferences and other system data structures. Sometimes, the problem occurs very frequently and you can not even use your system for general operations like backup and maintenance. It may prevent you from accessing your precious data from Mac OS X hard drive and cause serious data loss situations. At this point Mac Data Recovery comes to your help to retrieve lost data.
Applications may freeze quite frequently in Mac OS X operating system – generally causing an interminably spinning beach-ball cursor, also called beach-ball of death. But, Mac OS X do not generally bring the machine to screeching halt. In most of the cases, Mac OS X responds normally when you click a window that belongs to a program other than the frozen one. You can sort out the application freezing problem using the below steps:
• Use the Force Quit- Select the Force Quit option from Apple menu. It brings up ‘Force Quit Applications’ window. Select the application that you want to quit forcefully.
• Use the Process Viewer- Some programs in Mac OS X operating system run behind the scene. Such applications are not listed in Force Quit Applications windows, since you have not launched them. In such cases, you can quit and relaunch the application.
• Log Out of Your System and Reboot it- If the above methods do not work, choose Log Out option from Apple menu and then reboot your system. It generally fixes most of the application freeze issues.
