Catalina Upgrade Problems

I made the leap to upgrade to Catalina in early December. However, I wish I waited!


  • I love the updates to the Photos app. However, I had to update my old Aperture library. The good of that is that the Photos app seems much better than Aperture which had not updated in many years.
  • Overall, the upgrade seemed easy. Then again, I had plenty of extra space on the 2TB boot drive of my 2019 MBP.


  • My computer freezes every single time it goes to sleep. I’m not the only one! The problem seems pretty well documented on this support thread from Apple. What’s the workaround? Shutdown before leaving your MBP idle!
