Not good, maybe they should install replaceable ram sockets to avoid any major warranty issues. Cant blame the RAM vendor if your software is overworking the component.

Thanks for posting :thumbup:

You would think that was an easy fix. Firmware or macOS. There's no real meat in this story. Is it macOS, iWork, Safari? What is causing the huge swapfile usage? It potentially would affect any SSD-based machine running Big Sur right now. If they are suggesting the M1 somehow needs more swap than Intel then for what reason?

Apple could fix all of this, if it's true. Is everything on LTT gospel?

Agreed though, it would be much nicer if RAM and SSD was replaceable. Sigh ...

It could be someone is utilizing the malware bug just discovered in the M1s? Remote Bitcoin mining. Maybe Elan M—k and is behind it.

I'd like to know why/how someone power cycles their MacBook Pro 256 times when it's only been in use for 191 hours. Seems strange to me. These new M1 Macs have the longest lasting batteries of any Macs ever. What is this person doing to drain a new battery that fast ? :think:

Good point. That equates to turning their MBP off then on again every 3/4-hour (0.75). If this were even remotely likely then of course the poor system is writing it's initial swap file and system caches each time.

Just checked mine and no M1 malware. But then I don't run any apps I'm not confident about. I guess a file simply called "upgrade.pkg" is just too tempting for some ...

I had thought a full power cycle involves going from a fully charged battery to a completely discharged battery. That would mean they're really doing something intensive to eat up the battery. Apple says the max battery cycle count is only 1000 and they're already at 256 after owning it for 2 months ?
