@ozzy, I frequently get a message that screen time widget prevents egpu from disconnecting as well. Anyone got a fix for that?


To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

@alexosaurus, I disabled screen time monitoring. Though I still get plenty of crashes when I start my eGPU since 11.4 specifically. Though that's another thread at this point.

I wonder if Apple just dropped eGPU's completely now that they're moving to their own silicon. Why invest in bettering your Intel offerings when Intel is going the way of the dodo in their lineup? Of course they'll still do security updates and the like for a wee bit. But niche interests and ecosystems like eGPUs seems to be left to die on the vine. If that's the case I don't see Monterey making a difference. But I can always hope. Naively perhaps.
