I have a MacBook Pro 13 Early 2011 model that has been experiencing some random restarts (across OS’s Mavericks and Yosemite). I have tried almost every fix offered online. SMC PRAM reset, reseating the RAM, verify repair disk and permissions, safe mode reboot, clean install of the OS… everything humanly possible.
The only clue I have is in the log:
Previous Shutdown Code : -62
Now the crux of my problem. When this restart is gonna happen/happening the screen freezes, I see a white screen, a few seconds pass, Apple logo with loading bar, 4-5 seconds later another reboot, chime, this time it boots properly and I’m able to log into Mac OS X. A kernel panic is not registered because of the second reboot and so I cannot diagnose the problem well enough.
So I used cmd+v as soon as I saw the screen freeze and voila! Verbose mode opened up. I thought I could finally figure out real time what had really gone wong. I saw a lot of text swishing by. I even read words like EFI panic but could not find anything more because it was so quick. The second reboot happened and I was lost again. The 1 minute between the freeze and the proper boot (2nd) into Mac OS X does not document/logged…
How do I find the verbose log? These random restarts are driving me insane?
