Fixing Frozen Or Black Screen After Sleep On Mac OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite

Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite iconA frozen or black screen after sleep on Mac OS X 10.10.2 (beta 1, beta 2, beta 3) is often caused by a incompatible third-party display driver and is easily fixed by removing that display driver or delete completely the third-party app, e.g. via using CleanMyMac 2 for completely uninstalling the app. In my case, the culprit was AirParrot 2, an app for screen mirroring to an Apple TV or Chromecast and for desktop extension to a Mac or Windows PC.
