Question: new Macbook pro 2018 random restarts

Just bought it yesterday and it restarted randomly twice today while it was idle.

The phone support was useless.

It's the new 2018 version 15 inch, CPU 2.6, 512GB SSD.


Did it happen to anyone else with this newly introduce MacBook pro?


Thanks.

MacBook Pro TouchBar and Touch ID, macOS High Sierra (10.13.6)

Report are stored here:


/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports


You can paste that into

Finder > Go Menu > Go to Folder...

... and get directly there.


if you have any with date&time and ending in .panic, we would like to see the entire report.


Please do not post more than 20 lines of an Application panic or hang -- its information is only useful to the developer while actively debugging.

Thanks for the response. In that folder, I don't see anything ends with ".panic".

I have 31 files, most end with '.diag', one with '.core_analytics' and one with '.dpsub'. All of them have date and time in the filename.

So, I guess there is nothing to paste here.


Also, I should have mentioned that after the last restart, I noticed that my .bashrc file was restored to how it was saved yesterday. In other words, the changes I have made to this file are gone.


Edit: Actually I do see a file here with the word "panic":

/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/ProxiedDevice-Bridge/panic-full-2018-07-15-22274 8.703.ips

It seems to be a huge JSON file, and it has the following:

The next line of defense is typically to run an etrecheck report, and if you do not see obvious problems, use the "Share" button, then paste the report into reply on the forums. No personally-identifiable information is included in the report.

Hello David,

Thanks for posting your EtreCheck report and the other information. Very interesting!


Can you confirm that when you ran your EtreCheck report it was 3 hours after you experienced a random restart? Or did you restart the machine manually?


I am curious about that -11 Unknown shutdown code. It would be great to make that more of a "known" shutdown code.


It looks like that panic report was actually a panic from your T2 "Secure Enclave" chip running iOS. It happened about 2 hours after restarting. Apparently the system was able to recover. I don't know if it was an earlier problem with the T2 that cause the shutdown.


As for EtreCheck, those "unsigned files" aren't adware. They are homebrew. Did homebrew create those files or did you? Because I'm about to say bad things about them. If you created them, please don't take it personally. 🙂 EtreCheck is interpreting those files as e-mail addresses and redacting them. Launchd files should have descriptive names and labels. I have added many whitelist entries for all the files that homebrew creates. If this is their new naming scheme, then I'm officially defeated. I can't whitelist those. I suppose I could whitelist any file that starts with "homebrew". (Note to all the malware authors of the world: please use the prefix "homebrew" for new exploits.) Perhaps I'll remove all homebrew entries from the whitelist and flag any use of homebrew as a minor adware issue. Obviously homebrew is safe and not malware, but there is no way to prove that without valid digital signatures.

Thanks etresoft for the response.

As far as I remember, 3 hours prior to running EtreCheck, I was working with the support guy from Apple on the phone. We did several shut-down and restarts. Some of them he asked me to hold the Shift key immediately after turning it on and one of the times he asked me to click on the power button for 8 seconds, wait 5 seconds and then click again to power on.

The random restart happened before that and I'm not sure the exact time. I was out the entire day and found my MacBook restarted in the evening.


As far as I read, the T2 is newly introduced to this 2018 MacBook pro and wasn't available on the previous model. I hope it doesn't have an inherited issue.


As to the Homebrew. I didn't do any manual changes. The unsinged you see there are: mysql@5.7 and php@5.6. Both are not the latest version, and that's why they have "@version" sign.

They did come up with a new way how to add it to the startup items by running 'brew services start .....'.
As far as I remember, before, they used to ask the user to do 'ln -svf' for the plist file.


Here is what I have in that dir:

OK. Thanks. It's nothing then.

OK. Perhaps I can get away with just adding a homebrew exclusion to my privacy-protection logic. I might still flag homebrew as a minor issue.


I'm sorry, but I don't have any insight into your random restart issue. It would be helpful if you could post another EtreCheck report after you had experienced one of these restarts. Then, the shutdown code would accurate reflect whatever happened during the shutdown.


Do you have the system setup for automatic install of software updates? That could trigger a restart.

OK, thanks. I'll post here if it happens again.


I do have these two options checked “Download newly available updates in the background.” and “Install system data files and security updates.”.

It doesn't say anything about restart so I assume with these options checked it shouldn't automatically restart.

Regardless the checkboxes above, the first time it restarted, it was freezing for 20 seconds and then it restarted. So the first time wasn't related to updates for sure.

Sadly, it happened again. 10 minutes ago.

I woke up, I was able to open an app (Slack), and interact with it for a minute, after that it suddenly froze for 5 seconds and restarted.

Attached the report.

The restart happened exactly at 7:27AM EST.

It looks like I still need to do more with homebrew.


But your shutdown code is interesting. Unfortunately, Apple has never published its internal lists of shutdown codes and meanings. There are some leaked documents online, but generally it is a mystery.


When I do a search for "Last Shutdown Cause: -20 - Unknown" the only hits are from EtreCheck reports run on an iMac Pro. This is the only other Mac that has a Secure Enclave with embedded iOS and ARM chip. It seems reasonable to assume that -20 is a panic or crash related to that embedded system and that is what triggers the restart.


Do you have any other cryptic diagnostic files on or around 2018-07-18 07:28:02? That might help shed some light on the problem.


However, I don't think this is anything you are going to be able to fix yourself. I would appreciate any additional information you could post that might help EtreCheck identify and report this problem. But ultimately, you are going to have to take that machine back to Apple. They might also be interested in those diagnostic files.

If you make a Time Machine backup, it should be easy to restore.


Note to self: this file uses a UTC timestamp both in the file name and internally, unlike other diagnostic files


I guess we can go ahead and assume that the part about "Recoverable Panic" is false. 🙂

I'm not sure how practical would it be to use time machine in my situation.

Most of the time I spent was on installing and configuring services like MySQL, Nginx and some other software I use. They're mostly not in the user directly but all over the file system, so it won't be easy to fish them.

Code for MacOS and all Applications (including third party Applications DOES NOT modify itself. Every setting is stored separate from the code, in a file, typically a .plist file. There are very few of these that are system-wide. Almost everything goes in a User Directory, often in

~/Library...


,,, where the tilde is an active shortcut for "current user" that is honored throughout the File system.

If you take MySQL as an example, Homebrew installs it in /usr/local/opt/mysql@5.7/bin/mysql.

The settings may be at /etc/my.cnf or many other places.

The databases are located at /usr/local/var/mysql.


None of the settings/data is stored on the user directory.
