    His path leaves out the capital letters. It's actually "/system/Volumes/Data/private/var/db/lockdown" and CCC has not complained to me about it. I'm on 10.15.4.

    My original iMac from 2008 is running my home automation. An older mini is a video server in my theater setup. I trade in my iPhones, so I only have one, a 6s that is in service as a security camera....

    Nick, I didn't ask, and I really don't care a lot if it's new or not. The case is flawless, the screen is also flawless. The warranty is 90 days, so if I have any issues I can get it worked on. I...

    Ian, the idea of checking with Experimax today was kind of a long shot. I called to see if they had a similar laptop, but they said they thought they had the part in stock and when he quoted the...

    If the machine is that new, and if Apple suggested reinstall the OS, and you don't want to do that, then there is nothing more to say here. The fact that "someone on another forum" said they tried...

    Is it still in warranty? If so, contact Apple and get support. That is not how it should work.

    I don't doubt that others may have the issue, but I'm running Catalina and I don't have the problem, so it has to be something in YOUR system that is triggering the behavior. And given that a new...

    Bob, the external monitor worked perfectly, so it was definitely NOT the GPU at all. Just the MBP display screen. There were several posts on the Internet with similar issues. No known fix other than...
