Yes, but it was on mains power all the time. Besides, it only happens with Audacity, not with Boom Recorder, Sound Forge or Reaper. It’s a behviour that Audacity has shown for a long time. From 10.6.8 with Audacity 2.0.5 times. Can’t remember if it was like that before, because that period I was using SF Pro.
After some hours of testing, Audacity crashed when quitting. Had to kill it. Tried a number of times quitting again - no problem.
Checked the log in Audacity. Nothing.
When closing the log window with command + w, Audacity asked if I wanted to save. When I answered “No”, it didn’t close the log window, but it closed the (already saved) project window. Small bug there, I think.
Checked console. Output:

For the rest, no problems, even when the firewire cable dropped out. A rescan fixed that. Other apps seemed to pick up the reappearing RME automatically, tho.
