Some users report that the M1 MacBook screensaver is abnormal
Some users have found that their M1 MacBook has abnormal problems, mainly because the screensaver sometimes pops up by itself.
When the screensaver jumps out, it will directly fill the entire screen and seriously interfere with the user’s work, even if the user does not turn on the screen saver.
What makes users more troublesome is that the screen saver that jumps out by themselves cannot be closed normally. Under normal circumstances, the screen saver will disappear automatically only by moving the mouse.
However, the problem that occurred this time will not disappear until the screen is closed and reopened. Sometimes the frequency of occurrence is high, which causes users to continuously interrupt their work to operate.
According to Macrumors, many users have encountered this problem and cannot solve it, and it is not only the MacBook using the M1 chip that is affected.
Some users said that the same problem occurs with the MacBook Pro equipped with Intel processors, and the problem is basically the same as that of the M1 MacBook.
Therefore, this may not be a specific device problem but a problem with the Apple macOS Big Sur system, which affects different versions of MacBook.
Apple has not yet responded to the user’s feedback, but some users have discovered that the problem will occur if multiple different accounts are created on the device.
For example, users who create two or more accounts on the device may encounter this problem, but if the fast user switching function is disabled, the problem can be solved.
Some users seem to have successfully solved the problem after testing this solution, so if you also encounter this problem, you can use this method to temporarily solve it.
