I’m away on vacation in Switzerland, using my 2019 MacBook Pro to ingest and edit photos, read email, and “surf” the net in Safari. When I’m done, I either lock or put the MBP to sleep, and when I return to it, pressing the power key to awaken it, I get the start up chimes. This never happens at home, but it’s happened almost every time I reach for the computer here in Europe. (I know the location has nothing to do with it.) After I’ve logged back in, I get a MacOS message stating that the computer has unexpected rebooted due to a crash (or something like that). It happens with being both plugged into AC and not. The battery is usually pretty close to a full charge.
Is there anyway to determine what’s causing the crash, so that I can remedy it? I have minimal apps open and running, but several menu addons.
I just realized that I was down to about 20 GB of disk space, so that may have been an issue. I’ve since freed up a bunch and about 150 GB of disk space now available. We’ll see if that resolves anything.
In my case, there have been no problems. September 12 was when I upgraded my Mac to macOS 11.7. Shutdown cause 1 is (I assume) when I clicked “Restart” to begin the upgrade. I think cause 7 is when the upgrade completed and the system restarted itself to go back to normal operation.
