After disconnecting it from power and then wait for 30sec should I connect power again before I turn it on or should I connect it to power after I have turned it on?I was troubleshooting an issue earlier today with Apple support on my new 14" MBP and they said:
"Let's try one more thing. This time, we'll try to do an "SMC" reset. For Macs running on apple silicon, this is like restarting your Mac with extra steps.
For this, please connect your Mac to power. Then, shut it down. Disconnect it from power for at least 30 seconds, then turn it on again."
This actually fixed my problem where Sidecar was only working when the iPad was connected to the MBP with a Thunderbolt 3 cable and not over wireless.
Your OEM charging cable might be defective.Been having a charging problem with my 14” M1 MBP… MagSafe cable doesn’t work.. charging with a USB C cable works. I tried to chat with Apple Support, and after having to basically say what I just did THREE TIMES, the first thing they tell me they need to do is “reset the SMC” for troubleshooting. After doing a TAD bit of research of course resetting SMC for an M1 MBP is USELESS… why apple, why? don’t you send accurate or slightly updated technical support documents to India?
