Apple Silicon M1 Macs hit by screensaver bug — here’s how to fix it

Apple Silicon M1 Macs and MacBooks are falling victim to a bug that sees the screensaver forcibly take over the screen without warning, leaving users unable to continue working — though there are several short-term fixes available.

Per MacRumors, the issue appears specific to Mac and MacBook hardware with the Apple M1 chip, and is caused by the new Fast User Switching feature in macOS Big Sur. While this is supposed to let users switch accounts without needing to fully log out, the bug it’s apparently causing makes it difficult to log in or out at all, as the screensaver leaves the desktop space unusable despite the mouse cursor remaining visible.
