My 15″ Macbook Pro with TouchBar had it’s first ever Kernel Panic since I bought it in 2016. It was waking from sleep when it froze/locked up completely before showing the kernel panic grey screen of death.
My retina Macbook Pro had an issue recently with the screen going blank and kernel panics so I left it with an Apple store for 2 weeks and they fitted a new logic board and screen. The screen was not related to the main issue, I just pointed out some bright pixel clusters and they agreed to swap it.
I’ve now had my machine back two weeks and only just copied all my data back over from backups, I didn’t want to just restore an entire TimeMachine backup in case there were any errors in the backup from the multiple crashes. I finally get all my software, preferences and files as I need them, which takes longer than you think, and now it’s faulty, again.
I first noticed the right side USB port wasn’t working at all with any device, then it did the same as last time and with kernel panics every 3 mins before finally giving me a new error, Sleep Wake Failure experienced a problem, steps 52.
