9 Months after I rejected a M3P, my first weekend with MIC SR+...

Historically, the advice on crashes was to start disconnecting phones and USB devices as loading the data could cause the software to go wrong, I remember reading that some thought it was linked to say a rogue contact, too many contacts, some strange MP3 name tag. a storage device not working quite right, and that unpluigging things or disabling helped track down if it was linked to a particular device and then through trial and error you could elliminate other things until the culprit was found. That may be worth a try.

Found the link where it's explained a bit better, although it seems the eMMC issue increasingly became the primary culprit. Might still be worth a try,

After a long sleep I sometimes have a slight freeze on PIN to drive, its not a blank screen as it displays the PIN Pad just wont acknowledge me frantically tapping the PIN for a couple of seconds (which seems like ages). As others have suggested defo sounds like a computer issue.
Yes I get that one a lot. I have changed my routine to put my seatbelt on before doing the pin. Usually that is enough time. Rather than keep stabbing the screen you can tell when it is ready to accept input by listening to the AC. When the fan kicks in that means it has finished doing whatever it is doing and you can enter the pin. Wasn't an issue when I bought the car but been like this for at least a year now.

Good plan, slightly off topic here but in relation to the displaying of the PIN pad, one of the updates since I have owned the car (Sept 2020) has changed the behaviour. When I first got the car I had to have the brake pedal pushed down for the PIN pad to display (if I took my foot off the brake pedal the PIN pad would disappear), but recently I have noticed that if I push down the brake pedal and then release the brake pedal the PIN pad display remains on the screen.

That's a good suggestion. I'll try disconnecting my phone and any prior bluetooth devices, kill my WiFi connection, and pull my USB drive. I'm also going to do a full factory reset shortly, because I'm sure that will be one of the 20 questions from support.

The manual crashes for me on every use, not occasionally. And the other crashes happened after software updates. I might be wrong, but it doesn't feel like an MCU problem, this just feels like shitty buggy software. This all also started happening after the christmas turd as well, which is another reason I think it's more likely to be software. Before that I didn't have a black screen, but also wasn't driving much during covid.
