Apple m1 restarting when working on local

Issue Summary

When i working on Localwp, my Apple m1 computer is shutting down and restarting.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?


I am working Localwp with Phpstorm. My computer is restarting when Localwp is running. It happens 4-5 times in day.

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?
    macOS Big Sur 11.2.3

  • Attach the Local Log. See this Community Forum post for instructions on how to do so:

It happened again. I added mac log. Maybe it helps you. I am migrating to MAMP Pro for now. Waiting for your response. Thanks.

I’ve been running Local on my M1 MBA for months without any sort of similar issue. Unfortunately I do not understand Apple error logs.

I updated Big Sur 10.4. I am using now without any problem for one day. I will report here if problem has solved.

Edit: It happened again. I attached new mac log. (In Big Sur 10.4)apple2.log (12.1 KB)

Are you connected to an external monitor? This doesn’t seem related to Local


Yes it looks like external monitor issue. I will check it. Do you have same problem?

I have an external monitor too.

It seems to be specific to certain monitors, perhaps. I have an LG monitor without issues. Just chiming in to help try and help :slight_smile:
