I received the following error report from my MacBook Pro:

What has happened? How can I prevent this in the future?


Welcome @user65526! So, generally speaking, more information is needed for something like this. The closest I can guess is: some kernel extension, possible related to a graphics card or external video display (?) is getting hung up with Apple's "Power Nap" feature, also known as darkwake[s]. I'd recommended disabling the feature entirely, by entering in your terminal:

sudo pmset -a darkwakes 0

This will disable "Power Nap" in all cases. IMO its not a particularly useful feature anyway.
