This can be a MacBook Professional M1 with Monterey. The difficulty is: I can’t even energy it down correctly.
- Can I nonetheless retry log in (typing within the password)
- Or, someway shut it down gracefully
It does not present any log in enter fields any extra, and there’s no Shut Down icon. Solely a Cancel button which is able to trigger the pc to nap immediately.
The small print are:
I may need missed one character or two (capitial letter, image, and so on) and after a maybe 8 or 10 instances, it now says, “Your Account is locked” on the log in display screen.
There’s solely a “Cancel” button to place the pc to nap immediately.
So I can’t log in, strive once more, or gracefully shut down the pc.
I don’t need to press the ability button for 10 seconds or press the Shift-Ctrl-Choose-CMD Energy button to drive it to energy down, as that may damage the OS and the arduous drive. Think about the OS writing one thing to the arduous drive and also you drive it down.
- transferring the mouse to the highest display screen edge does not carry out the macOS process bar.
- proper click on on the desktop background doesn’t do something
How can I proceed? I do have one other MacBook Air M1 and iPad and iPhone in the event that they may also help. I can also use my iTunes / iCloud password to someway reset my MacBook… I feel Apple goofed on the UI design as a result of they isn’t any sleek method out when a consumer occurs to overlook the password.
