    Guys, first off, I'm very happy with the printer.
    The issue is that during a print, the printer freezing and will not respond. The bed stays hot as does the extruder but the X Y and Z motors stop. The Repetier program does not respond either. I have to Ctrl, Alt, Del and shut everything down that way. There does not seem to be any rhyme or reason behind it as it occurs on random prints and in different spots during the printing. Sometime at the beginning, sometimes part way through the print. Just now I was 2/3 through a 5 hour print when it froze.
    Any ideas that could fix this issue?

    This is Braydon from RoBo 3D. By chance, is your computer going into sleep mode? Just have to check that first. If not (As I don't assume it is since you are 5 hours into the print) try reinstalling the latest version of repetier host. We are going to have SD card upgrades ready soon so you will not need to rely on the computer
