Another tip, to stop cracking and falling, once cooked, turn off the oven and leave it in there to cool as the oven cools down.

What recipe are you using? I've never had a cheesecake fall in on itself and I make some pretty tall ones! Without the recipe, my guess is because you're taking it out before it's done. On recipes for baking, the time given is just a "suggestion" most of the time, as every oven slightly varies on temperature etc. Cheesecake is done when it's very slightly spongy in the middle.
Also if you overbeat the batter mixture it will end up falling. Only mix it enough to incorporate all the ingredients, no longer than that. It basically adds too much air to the cake so when it cools, it "deflates". Also if you open the oven to check on it, that can cause it to fall too.
I buy the box mix....guilty I know.....I honestly don't think I've even had a real baked cheese cake before.....sad right.

I don't have a lot of experience making cheesecake and my few attempts have collapsed. My daughter's 18th birthday is next week and she requested cheesecake for her birthday dinner dessert. How do I keep the cheesecake from totally collapsing on itself?
I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.
I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!
