This is very annoying. It seems like my iphone to Macbook Airdrop works but if I put the macbook to sleep it never works again. I only get a blinking "waiting..." and never any thing happens. Its actually faster to up to iCloud (via file share) and then open iCloud file on MacOS. To fix it I need to restart the MacOS. I don't seem to have this issue between iOS devices.

Is there a solution? am I doing something wrong?

MacOS 12.6.8 , iOS latest

EDIT: I did further testing and it seems Mac-to-Iphone works but iphone-to-mac does not work 🤷‍♂️
