BetterTouchTool is always hidden after waking from a sleep of more than a few minutes

New 16" MacBook Pro. No issues on previous 15" MacBook Pro.

Every time I wake from sleep I get the "Your BTT is currently hidden" message. No settings changes. Any ideas?

I will soon receive my 16" MBP - I'll check if any changes are necessary!

Any ideas? Every time it wakes from a sleep “your Touch Bar is currently hidden” really frustraing

+1 to this thread too. The same problem has been for many versions and continues on 3.209.

I don't have this problem on my new 16" MBP. Perhaps try selecting settings>User Interface>Show Menubar icon.

@Andreas_Hegenberg any updates? still happening very annoying

I've experienced the same thing and sometimes the BTT touch bar icon in the standard default strip disappears completely and other times there's a space for it but no icon.

Are you using GoldenChaos? This happens to me too on a 15" 2019 macbook pro after waking from sleep.

No I am not.

Any further updates on this?

The bug was (supposedly) fixed in one of the more recent alphas! I haven’t had this happen to me since then. Try updating :smile:

This is still happening to me. I'm on version 3.220 (1397).

Every time my laptop wakes from sleep, BTT is hidden.

Moved this to bug reports. @Andreas_Hegenberg any additional insight into this issue? It hasn't been happening to me specifically but seems to still be an issue for people generally.

One thing to try is enabling/disabling "restart after sleep"

I'm experimenting with hacky ways to actually detect the BTT Touch Bar (e.g. by placing 2 almost invisible pixels at specific positions, then screenshotting the bar...)

I've done that many times, I've also changed the time to 1s and it seems to have much better luck (90%) at 1s then automatic.
