I was still having this issue with PD 17.0.1 (51482) and macOS 11.6. Once I changed to Parallels hypervisor. My computer stopped freezing. It had gotten to the point that is would freeze up to three times a day. I mean it was just terrible. I was considering just starting from scratch on everything. Not one freeze since the change and I've done everything that I was doing when it was freezing.
