    Hey all, started hitting an issue recently, not totally sure what started it but it might've been updating to the latest version of Sonoma (14.4.1) the other day. I'm running Unity version 2022.3.4f1 and the latest version of Jetbrains Rider.

    The mechanism for the crash isn't 100% consistent, but fairly consistent. The most common cause is when I connect Rider as the external editor, and then navigate between the two apps. And it's not just any crash, the entire computer freezes for 2-3 seconds and then shuts off instantly, hard reboot. When I open Unity back up, it has disconnected Rider as the default editor and restored it to visual studio. This happened to me probably 30 times last night while I was trying to finish up a deadline. I've tried reinstalling Rider and it didn't seem to do anything.

    Anyone else hit this issue? any fixes?
