Dear Randall, cjp, and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

if you paid to up grade to WC3 download this it should help with the lock ups:https://trixology-eng.com/resources/downloads/WeatherCat302B20.zip

The WeatherCat 3.0.2 beta should also work in demo mode, so you can try it out to see if that solves your problem.

If it does, then you are suffering from the same problem described in this thread:

http://athena.trixology.com/index.php?topic=2754.0

Unfortunately, it doesn't effect all Mac models which makes it that much more difficult to troubleshoot.

Let us know what you discover.

Cheers, Edouard

I am running on an elderly MacBook Air - Late 2010, but with latest version of High Sierra, which is when all this kerfuffle started.

Hardware Overview:

  Model Name:   MacBook Air
  Model Identifier:   MacBookAir3,2
  Processor Name:   Intel Core 2 Duo
  Processor Speed:   2.13 GHz
  Number of Processors:   1
  Total Number of Cores:   2
  L2 Cache:   6 MB
  Memory:   4 GB
  Boot ROM Version:   MBA31.0069.B00
  SMC Version (system):   1.66f61

Per hints from everyone (for which many thanks), I confirmed AppNap is disabled in system prreferences, I have installed and subscribed to 3.0.1, I entered codes and WeatherCat ran fine from Thursday after I did all that until this morning at 8:46 EST when it had another seizure.   I had logged in at that time to check for updates from Microsoft as I have Office installed and another Mac needed some updates (this one did not need updates), so I moved on to the next one.  I generally lock my machines with Ctrl/Cmd/Q when I walk away and am sure I did that around 8:46 AM.  Just now, I noticed there were no updates to my station, so I logged back in at 1:00 pm and that act seems to have woken it up without a force quit this time around.  I was able to grab the log file from the UI which I happened to have open and have attached that.  There was no activity from 8:46 am until 1 pm when it seems to have retried ftp multiple times and then stabilized itself and come back to life.

Should I try the 3.0.2 beta?  Where would I find that?

Not locking the screen (disabling requiring for a password to unlock) is the workaround for what you are experiencing cjp. Or, if that is not acceptable, download and install from the link provided by Randall. I have done both when I am home. When I have to travel, I go back to locking the screen, and then remote in once a day.
