Safe Mode (Safe Startup) is a great way to troubleshoot the causes of problems you may have with your Mac. This article explains what to do if MacOS is stuck in safe mode, which means your Mac will continue in safe mode.
Safe Mode, your Mac starts in a very basic state by disabling unnecessary services. So you start your Mac in safe mode to fix any problems you have (I, your Mac is freezing).
To leave safe mode, you can only restart your Mac (without pressing any of the keys) by selecting Restart from the Apple menu.
If this does not work, try the following tips:

- To enter safe mode, press and hold down the Shift key while turning on the Mac. The Shift key may be stuck so that it remains pressed without pressing it. In other words, the Shift key is pressed on itself. This will start your Mac in safe mode. Check your Shift key if it works properly.
- If the Shift key works normally, the next thing you need to do is to reset PRAM (or NVRAM). This will reset some small settings (time zone, volume, etc.). Resetting this can solve the problem. Here's how:
- Turn off your computer
- Turn on your computer and immediately after pressing and holding Options, Command, P and R keys together for about 20 seconds. Then release the keys. The computer will restart.
- Use the Terminal app to reverse safe mode. While your Mac is in Safe Mode, do the following:
- Open the Terminal app (Programs> Tools> Terminal)
- Enter the following command
- sudo nvram boot-args = ""
- Press enter. You must enter your administrator password
- Restart the computer
