2015 MBP won't wake from overnight sleep

High Sierra 10.13.6. Few hours, no problem.

Overnight, requires a hard restart every AM.

Happen to anybody else? Ideas?

Thanx!

Restart holding Command R, then reinstall the OS.

Yep, that's my next option. I created a clean Test user account and that woke fine this AM.

What I'm trying to avoid, of course, is having to do a clean reinstall. That's just lots of work!

That's a bit heavy handed.

I'd reset PRAM and SMC first:

Actually the whole support section might be useful.

1) Safe boot. Nix.
2) Reset PRAM. Nix.
3) Reset SMC. Nix.

Think I'm down to a Recovery reinstall OS. What I want to avoid is a clean reinstall. If that happens, I'll wipe the 1TB, and start fresh.

But that's a dirty pile of work. And things never end up where you really want them!

Since the fresh account works fine why not set it up as your main admin account, then delete the current account?

Beyond that I would probably simply shutdown the laptop overnight as daily hard starts are generally a bad idea.

Before doing the entire reinstall I would want to clone to an external and clone back, especially if you are working from the newly minted account. Might clear things up. Obviously it is better to have created the clone before the issue arose, as that way you would know you are starting from a solid OS, versus depending on the cloning process to not carry over a defective file.

Maybe try running OnyX before you go much further if you haven't already done so. It often clears things up for me over the years.

Find the correct version for your OS here; https://www.titanium-software.fr/en/onyx.html

Good call!

I actually have OnyX but have rarely used it. Today is a workday so I'll run it overnight.

Meanwhile (back at the ranch), I quit all my open applications (Textedit, Preview, Safari, Transmission, Meteorologist, Meridian) before bed.

Mac woke just fine this AM. Think one or more of those apps might be the culprit?

TIA!
