I got my new Yoga 900 in the mail about two days ago and ever since it's been randomly freezing - more frequently recently. It froze once on the first day of use and I chalked it up to errors with Windows 10. It froze once more before I updated Windows and today after updating Windows it froze four times in one day. There's no error message or anything, it just freezes completely without a BSOD and the only way to use it again is to shut it off and turn it back on.
Aside from uninstalling bloatware and updating Windows with windows update, I haven't made any modifications to the software or anything. I haven't dropped it and it's always been put in a case when stowed in my backpack. I've babied this thing every step of the way. What's causing this? I'm really disappointed in having these problems with a brand new $1300 laptop. Is this common?

Hi yogaflame, welcome to the forum.
If all of the "bloatware" you are referring to, includes the Lenovo Companion, and Settings, you probably didn't receive the updates provided by Lenovo.
Still, if you go here:
... and compare your installed driver versions, to the Lenovo driver list, then update to the new, you should be all set.
Make note that there is a new BIOS, C6CN34WW, so if you're not on that revision, update the BIOS first.

Good day. I have purchased tablet Lenovo Yoga 900, i7, SSD 512, RAM 8GB, WinPro 10 from 12.23.2015 . Seek solutions to the constantly repeated freezing point. Freezes the main menu button and Win 10 freezes randomly startup programs , Task manager freezes , freezes Windows update ..... Bios, Driver Updates and Windows are the most recent . Please can anyone help? Freezing will show a few moments after you turn on or reboot. Well thank you.

This keeps happening to me as well, even with all the firmware updated.
I did, however, realize that this only seems to happen when my Yoga 900 is not plugged in. I.e. it's on batter power. It work for 3 minutes then freezes all of a sudden. The keyboard and mousepad are unresponsive, screen is frozen, requiring a hard restart.
This needs to be looked into. I wonder if it's a conflict between the battery apps (Lenovo's verses Windows 10). Or I'd be interested to know the situations when all of you also have the freezes happen (does anyone have it happened when the laptop is plugged in?).
Either way, this is really unpleasant as I do want to use my laptop unplugged and portably, so I'll probably have to use my warranty to get this fixed or replaced unless there is another solution.
