hello ive been using crossover for a while now and im having issues with games literally making my laptop restart I have no idea if I have a virus or something(doubt it as I know better than to click/download suspicious stuff) but for some reason whenever I play a game it makes my laptop restart I have no idea if its a problem with crossover cuz it could be a problem with macOS Monterey as it started when I updated my os but I need to know whats causing the problem so I can find a way to fix it. an example of a game that restarts my laptop is a game called spaced I downloaded from gamejolt many thanks in advance
running it on an early 2020 MacBook Air with everything aside from good storage im up to date and I actually did wipe my drive (before problems) I did the first aid thing on my Macintosh hd disk and there were no problems

Frankly, it doesn't seem likely that this is a crossover issue. Are there logs after crashing? typically, if the operating system has a crash, then it typically throws up an error report onto the screen, with something like "Your Mac Has Encountered an Issue that caused it to crash."
If that's not showing up, then I don't know what's going on with your computer. Maybe try and take a video of what happens when it shuts down?

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
