Written by iHospital. Posted in How To

how to restart a frozen macIs your Mac throwing a high-tech temper tantrum that’s driving you crazy? This blog post will show you how to force your Mac to shutdown so you can back to your busy day.  We’d like to warn you that this process will force a shutdown of your Mac computer and you will lose all unsaved work.  All important activities will stop as well.  Have any questions? You can always contact one of our D.i.D. Doctor of iDevices using the contact form on our website or via Twtter at @iHospital.

How to Restart a Frozen Mac

1) The first step to restart a frozen Mac is to find the power button. If you have an iMac, you’ll find the power button on the back of the computer near the left bottom corner. If you have a MacBook Pro, the power button is on the right speaker.  For Mac Mini’s, the power button is on the back, near the right corner.  For MacBooks, the power button is at the right corner of the base.  Finally, the power button can be found on the front of Mac Pro’s.

2) Press and hold the power button on your Mac for at least 5 seconds.  This step will force your Mac to shut down.

3) Now you have to restart your Mac computer by pressing down your Mac’s power button and releasing it quickly.  If your Mac doesn’t restart, try these steps again.

If your Mac is still causing you grief, you will need to investigate other options as to why your Mac won’t restart.  The first place to check is your power supply. You may have knocked it out.  The second thing to check is your Mac’s battery as it may be dead.  Finally, if your Mac is still misbehaving, bring your Mac down to any iHospital location and we’ll have one of our D.i.D. Doctor of iDevices (who specialize in Mac repair) take a look and see what’s wrong.  We’ll give you a time and cost estimate within five minutes of walking in the door too!
