Description Of Issue

The connection from the Roon Core to my iPad and iPhone breaks when I close the lid on my MacBook Pro. I need this connection to stay open, but I’m seeing now that it’s not possible. I just signed up today and would like a refund.


You can try this. This is what you used to use when used a MacBook Pro as my core.

Thanks. I have a second MacBook Pro with an external monitor attached and I figured out that MacOS handles sleep differently when a external monitor is attached. It’s working fine now.

There was another app one could install on the Mac that allowed for this…ORIX or ONYX rings a bell or Caffinate perhaps. Google is your friend, keep Mac running when lid closed
