Question: starting on after having batterie charged...

Hi!

Some time ago I've noticed that when ever I leave my MacBook Pro to charge on cable, when I start it on again (now having cable disconnected-if that men anything) it reports something like more or less ''you comp. has started again because of a problem..., would you like to report it to Apple...etc''

My question is: what does that mean, and hoy do I eventually fix it?

THANX!!!

Possible Fixes for El Capitan or Later

You should try each, one at a time, then test to see if the problem is fixed before going on to the next.


Be sure to backup your files before proceeding if possible.


  1. Shutdown the computer, wait 30 seconds, restart the computer.
  2. Resetting your Mac’s PRAM and NVRAM
  3. Reset the System Management Controller (SMC)
  4. Start the computer in Safe Mode, then restart normally. This is slower than a standard startup.
  5. Repair the disk by booting from the Recovery HD. Immediately after the chime hold down the Command and R keys until the Utility Menu appears. Choose Disk Utility and click on the Continue button. Select the indented (usually, Macintosh HD) volume entry from the side list. Click on the First Aid button in the toolbar. Wait for the Done button to appear. Quit Disk Utility and return to the Utility Menu. Restart the computer from the Apple Menu.
  6. Create a New User Account Open Users & Groups preferences. Click on the lock icon and enter your Admin password when prompted. On the left under Current User click on the Add [+] button under Login Options. Setup a new Admin user account. Upon completion log out of your current account then log into the new account. If your problems cease, then consider switching to the new account and transferring your files to it - Transferring files from one User Account to another.
  7. Download and install theOS X El Capitan 10.11.6 ComboUpdate or 10.12.6 Combo Update or macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 Combo Update as needed.
  8. Reinstall OS X by booting from the Recovery HD using the Command and R keys. When the Utility Menu appears select Reinstall OS X then click on the Continue button.
  9. Erase and Install OS X Restart the computer. Immediately after the chime hold down the CommandandRkeys until the Apple logo appears. When the Utility Menu appears:

I've done first four a few days ago...

And everything was normal...

Then today I've put it on a cable to charge..., didn't turn it off,

few hours later opened it, and had to press power button so it starts.

I'm not much of a computer expert..., so if it isn't necessary I rather wouldn't

go through all remaining steps you mentioned before...

Or I don't shut it down properly..., is it better to switch off, or put to sleep, or just close and leave?

A forced or abnormal shutdown is not recommended as it could damage the storage device. If you don't have to do a forced shutdown then don't. Reserve it for whenever the computer has crashed, locked up, or simply won't shut down. There is nothing wrong with putting it to sleep but it isn't advisable for long periods of time unless connected to the charger.
