    Just seeing if this is happening to anyone else, I have reported it to apple, but seemingly randomly when waking laptop from sleep the keyboard/trackpad become completely unresponsive, requiring a reboot to return to working since beta1.

    Rather an annoying issue when it happens, either have to just force power off/on or VNC in to reboot.

    Am I really the only person been having this issue with Catalina? Problem didn't occur until Catalina beta, and when tried to report it was marked unreproducable..

    I’m having the same issue too, every time I try and wake my machine it’s totally unresponsive, I’ve reported the issue too, I've tweaked my power settings but it’s still doing it.

    I get it on my 2018 rMBA. But my 2019 15” MBP has been fine.

    Having the same issue with my 2015 13" Retina MacBook Pro. Horrible! It's been here since DP4.

    For me it's not every time, but maybe a 1/3 chance..

    I’m having this issue, since updating to Beta 5 it’s becoming more frequent.

    Same issue, currently only happens when plugging into power. Not on battery mode. Only experienced it in B5, not earlier.

    I've noticed my issues more often on battery, but not any consistent pattern.

    2015 12 inch MacBook, same problem.

    In my case I have used my laptop for a long time so I think the battery is slightly degraded so I always have to keep it plugged into power to do time machine back up… Therefore it seems like I may not be able to do back ups until the next beta. I will see if I can attempt a time machine back up while I’m battery power but I did notice a couple issues where the laptop claimed it needed to charge when I tried to turn on the machine, and then upon hooking up the power cord it was at 61% battery… So my battery probably needs serviced on top of this being an affected 2015 model.

    My trackpad freezes when I am trying to do a time machine back up, however I don’t think the battery would last long enough for the large back up I need to do. At first I thought it was because of an overheating issue because the bottom got really warm, about to hot to touch. But even having a cooling pad or even an air conditioning blowing against it, it still kept freezing. And when I came back, whether it was the display turned off or the screen was still on, the entire system was frozen including trackpad.

    I will try a time machine back up with power nap disabled and without any power source connect into it. I will do it with 100% charged and see if the system freezes including trackpad. I will mention that the screen image remains the same even when the laptop lid is completely closed.

    Same issue for lots of people with 2015 Macbook. I recently had a new battery installed in mine by Apple and the symptoms are identical to yours, except I can use battery only power to get round the problem. It's been reported by quite a few people but you should do the same - hopefully it will be resolved in the next update - it's been two weeks since the last one, so hopefully soon.
