    Any ideas?

    "Any ideas?"

    Yup.
    Tonight, don't put it to sleep.
    Instead, shut it down by YOUR command.
    Tomorrow, reboot "fresh".
    Do you still get an error report after doing this?

    Did this only start happening with the High Sierra 10.13.4 security update? If so, there's probably an incompatibility between some software you have (Soundflower perhaps?) and the update. You can try starting up in safe mode and see if this still happens. If the problem doesn't happen when starting in safe mode, then it is very likely a software issue. If the problem still occurs in safe mode, then there is more troubleshooting that needs to be done.

    When I see a movie on Beamer and then go to sleep leaving the app opened, I always find the error next morning. I’m afraid it is a Software issue caused by Beamer or leaving an app opened that can’t be closed
