Default Mac Pro Late 2013 Freeze Unfreeze

Hello Guys,

I have read all around the net about people having the same problem as mine, the spinning ball that won't stop whereas you can't force quit an application and the music still plays in the background ... bottom line: the mac freezed ! and usually nothing would make it work again other than the power button ...

However, I found a little fix which is whenever I am faced with this issue, if I unplug then replug my apple thunderbolt display then the mac unfreezes and I loose nothing of my work and works like a charm ...

Anyone faced this ??

This is a turnaround but I would definitely fancy a permanent solution ....

Anyone has got an answer for this or faced this ??

Could it be a hardware or software problem ??

Best

DJ:
Once again this sounds like you may have Thunderbolt routing problems. I know in threads passed I mentioned that you may want to try different routing chains to see what works. Have you done that then and have you tried that with this problem? It's almost like there's something systemic going on with your setup that may well be Thunderbolt chain issues (that's assuming your Thunderbolt ports themselves are okay).

Like I said before - you have to try various combinations to see what works in your case. There's no one right configuration that will work across all possible hardware setups.

I wish thunderbolt was never made man ... USB 3.0 is so fast when you plug USB 3.0 SSDs and hassle free ... not to mention that the thunderbolt ports on the mac are easily detachable if u move the cable a little bit the cable will be out of the port easily ...
Crap ....

Never had a problem with the Thunderbolt cables detaching themselves but then again I have everything bundled/cabled/tied so cables and connections are secure.

Never had that happen in either case. Makes a good case for cabling things together which adds security for the connections.
