My mid-2017 is doing this same thing. I bought it brand new in May 2019 from the Apple store. I had no idea I was buying a 2017 model in 2019, which is a separate point of contention.

So, my apartment is in a 100 year old building. There are no grounded outlets - they are all ungrounded and I can’t afford thousands of dollars to rewire someone else’s building. I do use a surge protector. Is there anything else I should be doing? Should I unplug and shut down every single night?

Thank you in advance. It’s aggravating having a brand new computer with issues. My powerbook last for 8 years without incident.

Thanks again~
