Not sure if this is the cause of the issue you report, but with recent OSX versions (since Mountain Lion?) FinderPop will only work properly when installed for all users.

Try:
Uninstall FinderPop (FinderPop prefs panel > Etc. tab > Uninstall FinderPop button)
Restart with FP uninstalled.
Install a fresh copy of FP For All Users.

With FinderPop installed for all users, including root, Console (from root user) still reports:

11/21/14 5:45:01.825 PM finderpop-daemon[17776]: WARNING: The Gestalt selector gestaltSystemVersion is returning 10.9.1 instead of 10.10.1. Use NSProcessInfo's operatingSystemVersion property to get correct system version number.

and

11/21/14 5:45:02.866 PM finderpop-daemon[17776]: CFPropertyListCreateFromXMLData(): Old-style plist parser: missing semicolon in dictionary on line 3. Parsing will be abandoned. Break on _CFPropertyListMissingSemicolon to debug.

Hope this helps.

How did you do the installation? Not for each user separately, I hope.

At installation (by double clicking the prefs panel file) you choose the option to install "for all users".

FinderPop works fine in Yosemite for others. If you did the installation properly, we'll have to wait for Turly to shed light on this problem.

I am not sure what is going on in your system. I've never heard of FinderPop causing the screen to go black.

WARNING: The Gestalt selector gestaltSystemVersion is returning 10.9.1 instead of 10.10.1. Use NSProcessInfo's operatingSystemVersion property to get correct system version number.

FinderPop 2.5.7 does not call _Gestalt to get the OS version, so this is a surprise. Are you sure you're running 2.5.7? Do you have multiple versions installed for different users?

I think your best bet would be to uninstall FinderPop as RonaldPR suggested. (FinderPop prefs panel > Etc. tab > Uninstall FinderPop button.)
If you have installed FinderPop multiple times for different users, uninstall it for all such users too (this will mean logging in as that user and repeating the FinderPop prefs panel -> Etc. tab -> Uninstall FinderPop. The user's preferences and FinderPop Items folders should not be affected.)

Restart now with FinderPop completely uninstalled.
When you're back, make sure that System Preferences is not running - quit it if so.
Did I mention to quit System Preferences?
Double-click the FinderPop.prefPane icon from the latest version you downloaded.
When System Preferences opens it'll ask you whether FP should be installed for all users or just you. Choose "All users".

The messages from sandboxd about not having privileges to send AppleEvent replies is a red herring (and as far as I'm concerned, is a bug in sandboxd.)
The message about the missing semicolon in and old-style plist file also only appears on older versions of FinderPop (and is harmless.) As a matter of interest, are you using a localised (non-English) version of FinderPop?

I have been experiencing similar problem of "I experienced the screen going black but with the computer apparently still running" for a long time but never considered that it was related to FinderPop. I am using Mac OS X.6.8 (Snow Leopard). What I get is if the computer is idle for a long time, instead of going to sleep, screen just goes black, then sometimes it will not "wake up:" but you can tell the computer is still running. In that situationmy only option is to restart. Note that I rarely shutdown my computer. I can go 30-40 days and only let it sleep.

Using 27" iMac 2010 i7 2.93 GHz.

Any one else experience this?

Hmm, I can't think of anything I do in FP which could possibly cause sleep/wake problems - but you could simply disable FP for a week or two to see if the black screen problem recurs.
The Apple Discussions Boards have plenty of "screen black after sleep" threads if you want to see if any of the solutions work for you.
Hard to say really, but my money would be on one of your USB devices preventing sleep and/or wake. And you could reboot more often too :-)

Here's a version of 2.5.7 which is compatible - I just bumped the version check. Apparently it works OK on El Capitan.

I'll get around to doing a proper release real soon now.
