Was interested in that question previously but didn't find any step by step guide on how to achieve it. Solution is based on open-source tool called sleepwatcher and apple launchd Was inspired by this article So enjoy! : Install sleepwatcher => brew install sleepwatcher At first create => ~/.wakeup and ~/.sleep scripts and put some shell logic into it Add ...

This is caused by having FileVault enabled in the security settings. The disk won't decrypt until someone logs in, so services like remote desktop and sshd won't start until then.

Limitations of macOS macOS's Lock Screen is not customisable. Third Party Tools Third party tools, such as Power Manager, can be used to customise your Mac's energy saving settings and schedule. Disclaimer: I work on Power Manager, so feel free to ask technical questions about how it can be used.

I had a similar issue and addressed it by using a shell conditional evaluation: <key>ProgramArguments</key> <array> <string>zsh</string> <string>-c</string> <string>minute=$(date +"%M"); if [[ $minute = 00 || $minute = 30 ]]; then afplay -v 2 /System/Library/Sounds/Submarine.aiff; fi</...

The issue has to do with the clock sync. Basically, the Mac "knows" that the monitor is connected (I've verified that EDID data was being received), but since the Mac and the display "won't get on the same page" so to speak, the monitor shows blank.

If after resetting the SMC one time, turn of Bluetooth entirely to see if that helps. With Power Nap off, what causes MacBook Pro 2018 battery drain with lid closed and wake-ups every 2 hours?

For me turning off bluetooth was the only thing that solved this. I turned it off from the menu bar and clicked "Turn Bluetooth Off". Now the battery no longer drains when I put the mac to sleep. I had these same error messages, and previously I tried a whole bunch of things, including resetting PRAM, resetting SMC (System management controller), ...

Further investigation: wake-up loop was due to a bad USB hub chain which probably makes Catalina go mad (but worked with Mojave). Reconnected 2 hubs and a Thunderbolt dock in a different order and solved it. Anyway the xpcproxy error is there at every wake-up but at least not in constant loop.
