When I wake up the computer after Sleep or Shutdown Audacity will not record.
I have to restart the computer to get Audacity running again.

It already is - I have 2.1.m 2.1.3 and the latest alpha all running sweetly on my Macbook Pro under macOS 10.12.3 Sierra
I'm thrilled it's working for you.
Ever since the Sierra install, Audacity has been crippled.
I open the program, hit record, and it opens a track but it freezes.
I click record again it opens a separate track and it just flat lines. It doesn't record the audio.
Any theories as to what might be going wrong?

The prime recommendation there is to reduce Audacity's "Audio to buffer" setting in Recording Preferences. It is possible this may help prevent flatlining too, but USB interfaces don't record for ever without rebooting the computer.
Try recording at a modest sample rate of 44100 Hz (project rate bottom left of Audacity). Open Applications/Utilities/Audio MIDI Setup and set the output and input of the interface to 44100 Hz too.
If you want a higher rate, choose from 48000 Hz, 88200 Hz or 96000 Hz because those are the only other native rates that the interface supports. And if you choose a higher rate, again set Audio MIDI Setup to the same rate as Audacity project rate. Mismatched sample rates are a prime reason for USB recordings not working correctly.
Higher rates put more strain on the computer and interface and increase the likelihood of recording glitches.
