And then even worse, some USB-related actions will cause all USB ports on the machine to immediately stop functioning until reboot. The two things that have caused this "power off" to occur were using an unpowered USB hub (things would work fine for 20 minutes and then without fail I would get the "power off"), and then most recently trying to update my Kemper amp via USB.
I am using this machine for music production and as a result I have nearly every usb port on the machine occupied, and I'm using the thunderbolt slot for my audio interface.
Not sure exactly what is happening here - a power draw issue? Any ideas? Thanks all.
