My MacBook Pro (2021, M1 Max Chip) wasn't turning on. After unplugging all accessories, I used method 2 here https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204267, which is:
- Press and hold the power button on your Mac for about 10 seconds.
- Then press and release the power button normally.
I'm thankful it worked. But should I be worried this happened? What does pressing the power button for 10 seconds actually do? I do have an accessory (Caldigit Thunderbolt 3 Mini Dock) - which allows for 2 external 4k displays but it draws power from the Mac. I'm not sure if I should stop using that if it is causing damage?
Thanks a lot!
