My MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch Early 2013) has been crashing abruptly. This is especially happening when I keep my machine in sleep mode. Scenario:

When my machine goes to sleep, it won't respond to any of the key strokes or the trackpad to wake up. It goes blank and when I try to force restart using the long press on the power button, it doesn't boot up. I just leave my laptop alone for 10 minutes and then try force booting it up using the power button. Then, it shows a screen with english and some other foreign language text saying "Your Mac is going to be restarted because of some problem" and then the Apple logo and boot up screen appears. Once its restarted, the following error dialog appears.

The following is the log message: Anonymous UUID:

Could anyone please help.

  • I assume you are on El Capitan? This looks like an issue with your driver. Commented Apr 14, 2017 at 15:34
  • Seems to be a GPU issue according to the panic, but it's not for certain. Can you check the console app for the shutdown cause? Run Apple Diagnostics/a GPU stress test like Unigine Heaven? Confirm that the other panics have similar logs?

  • Do you have a dedicated GPU? If so, what's the model? If it's Nvidia, you can try downloading Nvidia's driver and using that instead of the built in MacOS drivers.

1 Answer 1


At first glance it appears to be a GPU issue, although that doesn't necessarily have to mean it's a hardware problem.

As a starting point you could boot into Safe Mode just to check if the issue is replicated. If so, then you'd want to run Apple Hardware Test.

Boot into Safe Mode

Follow these steps boot your Mac into Safe Mode:

  1. Fully shut down your Mac
  2. Restart your Mac
  3. Immediately press the Shift key and keep it down
  4. Let go of the Shift key when you see the login window (NOTE: If you have FileVault enabled you may need to log in twice).
  5. Test the computer (i.e. use it, put it to sleep, try to replicate the crash)
  6. To exit Safe Mode just restart your Mac as normal

If the problem persists in Safe Mode, then use Apple Hardware Test as follows.

Run Apple Hardware Test

Your model MBP uses Apple Hardware Test. To use this, follow these steps:

  1. Shut down your MacBook Pro
  2. Restart your MacBook Pro
  3. Press and hold the D key before the gray startup screen appears.
  4. After a while, Apple Hardware Test (AHT) will start.
  5. When prompted, select your language and click the right arrow.
  6. When the AHT console appears, you can choose to run Basic tests by clicking the Test button. However, I suggest you select the "Perform extended testing" checkbox before you click the Test button.
  7. Your test results will appear in the window in the bottom-right of the console.

Note 1: that the extended test will take some time. Take a note of the results and report back.

Note 2: If pressing and holding the D key at Step 3 doesn't work, start again at Step 1 and, at Step 3 press and hold both the OptionD keys instead. This will try and run diagnostics from the internet instead, so you will need to allow more time for it to complete.

  • Thanks a lot @Monomeeth It worked. But I returned my machine back to our service team and got a brand new one ;)
