Every so often when I open my computer, that message appears. Can anyone tell me what node is?

  • only when you wake it up from sleep ? – Ruskes Oct 31 '18 at 2:25
  • this might be trcky to do, but Open Console (inUtility folder), now watch your clock down to a second and remember when you open the lid. Go back to console find that time stamp and copy some 50 lines from it and paste in your post. – Ruskes Oct 31 '18 at 2:47

I got this too, and I ran "ps aux | grep node" from the terminal. I've seen a couple of different programs show up. One was Videostream. Another was actually Adobe Creative Cloud:

kenlu 693 0.0 0.2 5996836 27612 ?? S 11Dec18 23:09.26 /Applications/Utilities/Adobe Creative Cloud Experience/CCXProcess/CCXProcess.app/Contents/MacOS/../libs/node /Applications/Utilities/Adobe Creative Cloud Experience/CCXProcess/CCXProcess.app/Contents/MacOS/../js/main.js

So it looks like this is just part of Adobe Creative Cloud, which is probably fine.
