Since updating to catalina, every time I shutdown the system it takes ages to shutdown and then after reaching the shutdown state, sometimes the screen turns white again, as if it would start again and after a while the screen turns black again with a shutdown message at the middle, in several languages.

Then, if I start the system, I see this crash message:


Code:
panic(cpu 1 caller 0xffffff7fa6c96aae): watchdog timeout: no checkins from watchdogd in 184 seconds (97 totalcheckins since monitoring last enabled), shutdown in progress

Lots of folks with the issue here: https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/372183/catalina-crashing-at-shutdown-with-this-error


I'm using it as a serious dev machine, lots of Kexts for Docker, Virtualbox, Intel Gadgets etc.


I see over 100 people complain on Apple Forum...

Does the latest beta fix this, it's ****ing so annoying.

Just as a test, try holding the shift key at boot to start in safe mode. That will stop all those third party launch and startup items you have from running. Then shutdown and see if the problem is gone. If that fixes it, it tells you it is one of those third party launch items causing the problem and you can start removing them to find the offender.
