    Sorry can't give you any answers.
    I was on Miiverse looking through posts. I scrolled right to the bottom, scrolled up then scrolled down and instantly froze!
    Happened about 20 mins ago.
    Like you Buffdog, not one single button would work.
    I even held down the power button and that had no luck so had to flick my powerpoint switch off then back on which I didn't like doing!

    Yeah. Mine has frozen about three times. Two in game and one in the settings menu. Nintendo needs to fix this.

    have you guys gone to the Nintendo Official Forums and let them know of these issues?

    You should be safe as none of you have stated anything about piracy or modifications in this thread...

    It happens twice every two days. They need to work on their system tuneups.

    Mine has already frozen twice... and I have it since two days. Yep, needs a lot of tuning. Beside that (and the eternal loading time of everything) I must say I'm very happy of it! Very nice system. You did it again big N :)

    is this only happening when you guys are connected to the internet while playing? i have not yet connected my wii u back to the internet after the update, and mine has never frozen. been using it DAILY, for many hours, since december 24th...??? thinking maybe just the nintendo software that needs to be updated and the problem does not at all lie within the hardware...

    My Wii U has frozen many times. I've only noticed it freezing when playing black ops 2, it even froze while booting the disc one time. Hopefully this can be fixed with an update. Has Nintendo acknowledged this problem?

    Right I've been doing some looking about on the web.and I found that a good few people its happening to no can give answer? Even on Nintendo forums which are u.s no one know.so I phoned them today the big N and the customer service guy said.he don't know if it is a hardware problem or soft then said take it back to where I got it from but I might lose all my stuff.but said depend were you got it from they can take the data off my old wiiu and put on new one.(umm this sounds interesting) I said which stores he said I cant tell you unless you know where you got if from which I don't ? Smart guy lol.so he then said we can take and your stuff will be safe but you have to wait about 7 days for it and we will tell you what's up with it so that's were am up to peeps.

    I guess I'll repeat myself:

    "is this only happening when you guys are connected to the internet while playing? i have not yet connected my wii u back to the internet after the update, and mine has never frozen. been using it DAILY, for many hours, since december 24th...??? thinking maybe just the nintendo software that needs to be updated and the problem does not at all lie within the hardware..."

    Both on and off net and is fully updated I do think it's software problem but better to try and find out instead of guessing what It could be? If you @pattonfiend67 could see what you can find it would be nice nice one more info the better.

    i have been all over the nintendo support forums and there is ONE guy who seems to think the same thing that i just said. if no one minds, i would like to link the post? if it needs to be removed, go for it and sorry for the inconvenience.

    try the tenth post into this thread HERE. the post you are looking for is by a guy named, "biker bob" or something. it couldn't hurt to check it out at least and follow his directions.

    THIS may also help. just skim through all of the wii u forums anyway, lot's of good stuff to read in there.

    Mine froze once in the middle of a Sonic Racing Transformed race, with a really annoying high pitched sound. That's the only time it's happened to me, but it's been confirmed that this is related to Miiverse and doesn't happen if you're not online or haven't updated. Nintendo will probably fix it once they figure out what the issue is, but something like this could be hard to track down.

    However if that BIKER_BOB guy is right the issue is not within Miiverse itself, but Miiverse could be triggering it.
