I have a Macbook Pro 16" 2019 that automatically boots after I shut it down.

When I shutdown the macbook as per usual (Apple Icon > Shut Down), and close the lid, it will boot up automatically, because I hear the boot sound. It typically happens when I pick it up, or pick up my backpack and it's inside.

I have tried forcing it off (pressing and holding the fingerprint reader), but it has no effect, it also boots automatically.

I have found MacBook Air Starts up when I close the lid and tried the solutions proposed there, but none of them worked.

The things I checked are ensuring the power nap feature is off, removing any applications that might have launchd installed (only opengpg), and reinstalling this machine.

One of my hypotheses is that when you pick up the device the touchpad registers movement and boots based off of that, but then this must be a hardware malfunction because nobody else at work has the issue.

I completely wiped the macbook and installed a vanilla version of Mac OSX.

  • If you think it's a hardware fault, then take it to an Apple Store.

  • I know, but I'm asking here first in case I'm wrong. It would save me some days without a machine. Commented Oct 1, 2021 at 11:35
  • If you want to fully rule out software create a backup and completely wipe and reinstall the machine (also make sure no Bluetooth devices are paired) and see if the issue still occurs on a vanilla system (before installing any software). Commented Oct 1, 2021 at 11:51
  • Can you share an excerpt of your power management logs? Please include all timestamps starting at the last successful "normal" boot and continuing through you closing the lid and the machine subsequently booting by itself. pmset -g log
