Three times since upgrading to Mojave a few weeks ago, my mid 2014 Macbook Pro has spontaneously switched itself on, with the lid fully closed. This is happening many hours after I shut it down (sometime in the middle of the night). I find it, in my bag, firmly closed, roasting hot, fan blazing.

I generally have to hard power-off the machine, then restart. In addition to losing some work, I'm concerned about damage to the machine at such high temperatures.

I've recently done a PRAM reset and an SMC reset. I had never seen anything like this in the years of previous versions of OSX/Macos.

Is there any known cause, or way to prevent this happening? Anything I can check for? There is no wake schedule set in Energy Saver preferences.

I ran into the exact same issue, clamshell closed and in my bag (power adapter plugged into the laptop with top of bag unzipped) - and realized that "Enable Power Nap while plugged into a power adapter" was somehow set to on in the Energy Saver preference pane.

I also had:

This was from maybe 10 minutes before I opened the laptop, and it had been spitting out similar entries for the prior ~24 hours worth of "sleep" I thought the machine was getting.

  • Was the machine also heating up, with fan working hard? – Steve Bennett Jun 24 at 3:59
  • oh yes - and I have previously fried an older MBP this way because it was stuck in the bag. – udecker Jun 26 at 3:11
