I’ve had it with it.
Quite apart from the intermittent not seeing the Time Machine drive that was directly attached via USB…
I had recurring crash emerge since installing Catalina, every time the Mac sleeps, ie ten times a day, it will crash with the report
“panic(cpu 6 caller 0xffffff7f8879cad5): userspace watchdog timeout: no successful checkins from com.apple.WindowServer in 120 seconds”
I’ve been through Apple Support three times
- the SMC, PRAM…
- Re-install the OS
- Reformat the drive, reinstall the OS, restore from Time Machine
And still it continues.
Now MailMate won’t launch. Pages won’t launch. Path Finder won’t launch.
The Apple Discussion forums are filled with this ‘watchdog’ issue but the support team seem unaware of this. They put me through their series of steps. Frankly I suspect their next step is send it in to us.
I have to work out how to downgrade to Mojave.
