I am using a 2016 MacBook Pro 15" (Model A1707). Whenever I put my computer on sleep, then wake it up, I find that I cannot use Touch ID to unlock my computer. The screenshot below shows the screen when I wake up the computer. How can I enable Touch ID after my computer is asleep? Thanks!



The bug was fixed in macOS 10.12.2

    That does not seem to be the case. I am on 10.12.4 and the touchId is still disabled after sleep mode. – BrianC May 23 '17 at 17:01

    Agreed, 10.12.5 and it's still an issue. – Robert Jul 4 '17 at 8:36
  • Sometimes the Touch ID is still disabled after sleep mode on Mac OS X 10.13.6. – RUserPassingBy Dec 14 '19 at 7:37
  • Still broken on 10.14.6 – AjahnCharles Mar 20 at 5:39

I messed with the sleep/screen saver settings and restarted and it seemed to have fixed my issue.
