Your MacBook or iMac will usually operate for long periods of time without glitches or problems, however, Apple cannot control every aspect of their products. Some third-party applications might contain optimization and resource usage faults causing frozen apps or, in some rare cases, a freeze of the entire Mac system.

USB is used extensively, from input devices (keyboard/mouse) to external storage and output devices (printers, speakers/headphones). As USB ports are used for a wide range of devices, an inactive port can become a major problem.

How to launch and use Apple's built-in hardware diagnostic tools, such as Apple Hardware Test and Apple Diagnostics?
Apple computers are well known for their stability and performance, and also use of hardware resources. Many people state that Mac computers never crash, however, there is always a chance of hardware or software crashes on any system. To help users in this respect, Apple included a built-in diagnostic tool that checks all computer components and displays results and recommendations about how to solve any existing issues. The tool (called Apple Hardware Test) provided multiple diagnostic tests on all Mac computers, and was available until 2013. Later, Apple slightly changed the name (Apple Diagnostics) and appearance on all models released after 2013.
Mac is displaying warning message 'Your startup disk is almost full', how to fix?
Many Mac users have encountered a message stating that their startup disk is almost full. The appearance of this particular message varies with versions of the operating system. The issue tends to occur on release of each operating system version and it is not related to hardware or software glitches, even though it appears to be a warning message. The message states that you have reached the limit of free space on the hard drive. The Mac issues this warning, since the macOS requires at least 10 % of free space available in order to work properly. Furthermore, when the hard disk runs out of free space, the performance of the Mac will decrease significantly and various errors and glitches might also appear.
