    My fresh-out-of-the-box $4800 MBP has "restarted due to a problem" during sleep twice in three days. Apparently, I'm not alone:

    In my reading, I found that users of the Mac Pros are having the same issues:

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8232619

    The symptoms are crashing during sleep or high I/O activities (with a Bridge OS error), and a report of "Warning: crypto_val: object" when running Disk Utility (which may be unrelated). Note that these are the only two machines that use the new T2 chips.

    Note that I reinstalled only the bare minimum software I use from scratch and avoided using Migration Assistant just so I could be sure nothing bad was transferred from my old computer.

    Any of you other new MBP users experiencing the same?

    Yes, Bridge OS is the software that runs on the T2.

    Guess we are the beta testers ;)

    Same. And constantly find it in my bag attempting to set itself ablaze doing god knows what when it’s supposed to be in sleep mode.

    When my computer is asleep, I also find that it tries to wake up my external monitor (an LG connected via the Thunderbolt 2 to 3 adapter) periodically. Reading around, I found someone else who said his kept sending wake up commands to his external Thunderbolt displays. Seems like this 'puter doesn't understand what "sleeping" is.

    Nothing here for now....but i don't let any devices connected to my MBP....maybe this is the issue i wonder?
    Apple forgot to upload to the servers the macOS in the first 2-3 days of the 2018 MBP....now this...they forget to update the OS for bridge OS...i hope they will do it soon

    Signed up to post here: my brand new 2018 MBP keeps restarting during sleep too. Also the usb c ports on the left hand side don’t work. The MacBook doesn’t charge through them nor does it detect USB devices plugged in on the left hand side.

    Sigh... I guess this is the new normal for Apple "quality". FWIW, I've had similar crashes on my iMac Pro, but only with the LG Ultrafine 4K monitor connected. I can reliably recreate the crash by just using Photos.app normally: scrolling around, in and out of editing photos, etc. Without the monitor connected my iMac Pro is stable, but others report issues with brand new out of the box unmodified iMac Pros with no external devices. This is the biggest thread I've found so regarding the issue: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8236615

    I didn't realize that Bridge OS is what runs on the T2; the T2 is obviously the common link between iMac Pro and 2018 MBP. Welcome to the beta testers group!

    What's disturbing is that the iMac Pro has been out for quite some time and there are still issues. That makes me very nervous about keeping this new (and expensive) machine. BTW, I'm on a 2018 MBP 15" 2.9/32GB/2TB if it matters.

    It may be hardware issue with the T2. My first unit was having constant spontaneous reboots and kernel panics even after a clean reinstall. I exchanged it for another unit and I’ve yet to see a crash.

    Had my 13inch swapped over for new unit also. No crashes, reboot, kernel panics so far. And all the ports work so that is a positive! :)

    I wonder if today's Supplemental Update fixed more than just the throttling issue. It was 1.4 GB in size, so there's certainly more in there than a digital key for the CPU temperature! I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    Had one crash like this so far.

    Also I have issues with powerchime and thinking ac adapter disconnected/connected when charging has reached 100% whilst in sleep mode.

    I'm hoping it is a software issue, as exchange for me would be very tricky now ( bought in different country ).

    Interesting...is this inherent in all models that use t2 chips? Anyone w/o this issue from the get-go?

    Is there any feedback from apple? Maybe its a hardware issue.

    Not having this issue as of yet *fingers crossed, but I hope everyone who is having the issue is reporting it to Apple. I would also suggest reporting this to senior advisors and/or through the developer bug reporting channels so that we make sure it is making it to engineering.
