Spotify crashes after Mac wakes up

Spotify crashes after Mac wakes up

Every time when my mac sleeps and wakes up, spotify crashes consistently if try to play music or try to open the running app. Sometimes, i noticed it plays the song too fast (like 3x speed) without crashing.  I've to force kill the app each time and start it again to workaround this problem.


And it happens only on latest macbook pro (2017). I've another macbook pro (2015) where it works perfectly.



Mac Book Pro 2017 (with touchbar)

OS : macOS 10.13.3 (17D102)

Spotify version :


FYI, I'm a premium user.

Hey Julian,


Yeah, it's still happening every time. I tried reinstalling it as well, it doesn't help. And I'm using the latest version :


I'll try to get some log/screenshot when it happens next time.


It happened again, but I couldn't find any spotify related log file in this `~/Library/Logs/` directory. Since the problem is with audio, screenshots won't be helpful.


Hey @ramsrib.


Thanks for getting back to us with this info.


Just to confirm does the macbook have any battery saving restrictions that could be interfering with the Spotify app? Also, are both Macs running the same OS version?


Keep us posted.

I am suffering from a similar problem since I moved to MacOS Ventura.  When I wake up the computer in the morning, Spotify is just froze and unresponsive... it won't even quit normally, so I have to force quit it
