I have little desk space, so I frequently set my Framework laptop directly on top of my work machine, a 15" 2019 MacBook Pro.
I have already applied the double-sided tape, and ensured that the keyboard cable is mounted properly.
Intermittently, the keyboard disconnects (the lights go dark), the OS (Fedora) immediately hibernates without warning. The keyboard remains dark. I press the power switch, and nothing happens.
I shake the laptop. The keyboard springs back to life, I press the power button, and the OS resumes from hibernate.
This issue only happens when I have my laptop resting on top of the MacBook Pro. Neither device needs to be plugged in, but the MBP is always in sleep mode.
I can shake it all I want anywhere else, but if I even have a corner of the laptop touching the MBP, it can suddenly disconnect the keyboard and hibernate. It doesn’t seem to have anything to do with actual electrical contact, because the bottom of the laptop has rubber feet.
What could possibly cause a problem like this?
