My guess is that your video problems are due to the new drivers used for FileVault support.
Sorry, I interpreted this to mean the problems I experienced while watching videos. I only have problems watching videos on my computer; no filevault problems or black screens in any other scenario. Not while running VMs, watching videos in Firefox, or any other task so far.
If heat were the issue, wouldn't I have experienced this before?
This last time, my screens stayed on but everything froze. however a spin report was generated.. how could I go about parsing that to see if I can determine the cause?
I just started a video in VLC and started a streaming video from Amazon Prime and started a streaming video from Apple TV app.
I believe you.. but clearly something is off with my setup and it was caused/revealed by the update.

Did you get any panic reports/logs after restarting from the freeze?
Have you tried playing videos in VLC in Windows or Linux?

I'm going to leave these three videos running for an hour or so to see if I can get a freeze...

No panic reports or logs, no dialogs at startup. Only thing is the spindump.
I don't have windows or linux installed at the moment, but I've been meaning to install Win10 so if I can't figure this stuff out in the next day or so, I'll install it.

Does the spindump reveal where it froze?

All three of my videos are still playing as I type this. Will keep them running for about another half hour...


Edit:
Can you try running some GPU benchmarks like Engine Heaven or Valley? Maybe let it run for about an hour or so.

Will run benchmarks in a sec. Something interesting; on IINA when I disabled hardware decoding, the glitches went away.
The spindump was waiting on the WindowServer but I am not knowledgeable enough to be able to quickly find other potential issues in the log.
So far, running heaven on extreme has been fine with no issues (am about 1/2 way through); however, the only temperature listed is for "CPU Chip" and my GPU isn't listed at all. Is this normal?
EDIT: It finished with a pretty low score (1838). It also says that the render was OpenGL? I thought it was all Metal now. The GPU is correctly listed in the report, so it not showing up in the HUD is probably(?) fine.

I have never seen an Aptio problem on boot when switching system definitions...

Is it not going to sleep at all or is it waking quickly after going to sleep?

Before I tried with keyboard and mouse connected, and it was sleeping for a few minutes, then waking up and never going to sleep again

Then I literally disconnected everything now. First I tried with disabling bluetooth but was still happening. Then I tried by disconnecting the USB dongle for my mouse (G502 wireless) and now the things got way better. I'm still getting the RTC XDCI Alarm but it seems to be waking up and going back to sleep.

I'm not entirely sure what else to do aside from trying to create the USB Map again

Here's the logs since 7:19PM yesterday up until this morning.

I'm surprised the mouse dongle was causing so much trouble. Are you using SSDT or kext for the USB 15 port limit fix? Maybe switch from one to the other to see if it makes a difference...

I'm using the SSDT + USBInjectAll.kext. I will try to create the USB map again just in case, and try again. I initially thought it was the bluetooth module but it doesn't seem like it. I will retest again the Mouse USB too, just in case there was some other third factor doing this. Thanks!

Remember, when using the USBPorts.kext, USBInjectAll.kext should be removed.

@pastrychef sorry for the offtopic, i have the build of my signature. All this time i'm using Fakesmc.kext with no problems.
I have see your latest EFI folders that you are using VirtuaSMC. Do you believe is better for my system to go also with VirtualSMC?
Thanks in advanced.
