I was having random screen freeze issue after updating intel graphic driver to latest version, 15.47.02.4815. Not a permanent freeze but would randomly freeze for 2-5 seconds which sometimes can be annoying. I have downgraded to an older version 15.46.05.4771 which works perfectly fine and instantly solved all the random screen freeze issue which came to a conclusion that I suspect there was some problem with the latest driver. I have tried to reinstall and clean reinstall the latest driver which still has the same problem.
