This was my first install of Roon yesterday @ around 15.45
All OK except machine ran very hot in use during the afternoon
First time I have ever heard Mac Mini fans running
Noted Roon very high CPU usage over 100% and higher
(CURRENT TODAY Process (count) Source CPU Roon Roon Labs LLC 105.00 %)
A couple of times the cursor got very laggy / jumpy
Left machine running playing music with screensaver around 18.00
Later returned to machine and screensaver running but locked in place, cannot get back to desktop Shortly after machine reverted to a powered blank screen @ around 19.15
Nothing I could do would get me back to a working Mac
Had to hard crash/restart machine with power button
TODAY - restarted OK, but after launching Roon fans spun up immediately
CURRENT TODAY Process (count) Source CPU Roon Roon Labs LLC 105.00 %
I have full Roon logs but CAN SEE NO WAY TO UPLOAD DOCS? what am I missing?

Have you installed the full Roon package or the GUI-less Roon Server on your Mac Mini? I would try the Roon Server and use the Remote on the iPhone or any other PC or Mac to interface with the server. There have also been reports that shutting down the WiFi and reconnecting it again resolves the high CPU load in Macs, at least temporarily.
Full Roon package on my main working Mac. Such a shame as that is how I want to use it on my desktop system. Will try the remote option on a spare machine. Think I am going back to Audirvarna until this is fixed. It’s a long time since some new software has crashed my Mac )-: Cheers Robert
We don’t typically perform any testing on Beta OSs, so please do be aware that this may be a cause of the issue. If you have a Mac running a stable version of the OS, it might be better to try to have Roon installed there.
Can you please upload the full log set to the link I PM’d you?
I would instead try the Server version on another machine, not running the beta and leave just the Roon client running on the beta machine, please see Running Roon as a Remote Guide.
While it’s important for you to point out that Roon is not being tested on Beta versions of supported OS, it would be fair and helpful if you also acknowledged that there have been many more reports of Mac users with very similar symptoms. I am still on MacOS 10.14 on my Macbook Pro used as Remote, and have experienced the same… albeit not since the last Roon update.
So this may have to do with the OP running a beta OS, or it may not.
