Four weeks ago, I got about 20 Kernel panics on my new MacBook Pro 9,1 (15", Mid 2012, i7 2,3 Quadcore with 8GB RAM and 512 GB SSD) with OS X Lion 10.7.5 and all available updates installed. They are all of the same kind and seems to be linked to the graphics (kernel extensions in backtrace are always the same three). They all happened when the system tries to go to standby or is whilst running the screensaver (just before going to standby). I never had one whilst working on the machine, only when I left it running for several time.

Sometimes I also get the spinning beach ball in several applications like PowerPoint, iMovie etc.; sometimes the programs hang as well.

Because it seems to be linked to the graphics, I tried deactivating the switching of graphics from Intel HD 4000 to NVidia GT 650M - the Kernel panic came again.

I repaired permissions - no effect.

I tried Hardware test last night. It started but whilst testing it stuck after 11 or 12 seconds while saying "testing RAM". It stayed at this the whole night. I retried three more times - same result. The mouse is also working, but I could only quit by hard-reset by switching off the power button, no reaction on pressing "Stop testing".

In the System information screen, it shows me 13" Macbook Pro which is bothering me as well - it's a 15" one!

Maybe you have an additional idea except asking the APPLE-guys (which I will do right after Christmas).
