Question: MBP 2017 crashing caused by closed clamshell startup problems
If I start up with the closed clamshell operation (cover closed, external screens, wireless KB, Trackpad working/in use) then wait a bit for everything to finish starting, then open the cover I get a crash (kernel panic)- the screens freeze and the computer becomes unresponsive. Only way to recover from this scenario is to restart, with the cover open.
Then, if starting from the cover open, then close the cover to go back to closed clamshell mode, no problem! You can go back and forth between modes from that point without problems.
It's just starting with closed clamshell that causes issues. This has been happening since I got this machine and never happened before on previous MBP 2014.
Anybody have this bug?
