I upgraded to macOS High sierra and now my system shuts down automatically at night. This is quite annoying.

I tried looking in System Preferences > Energy Saver > Schedule… settings but, there's no schedule set.

Can someone please help me with this.

I am using MacBook Pro 15" Mid 2015

  • The only place I know that could be set to do that is.. System Prefs > Energy Saver > Schedule There was recently a question where someone found that was enabled without their knowledge.

    Same problem here on a Touchbar MBP 15". Hoping a dot release fixes it.

  • couple of days back, I reinstalled "command line tools" and after that I haven't faced this issue, I don't know how they are related.

Installing "command line tools" solved this issue. However, I have no clue how they are related.

To install command line tools run following command in terminal.

xcode-select --install

I have had the same issue each day since installing High Sierra. However, in my case, the computer doesn't shut down, but rather goes into deep sleep. I called AppleCare and they acknowledged the issue and said they are working on it.
