I have Dell E5550 and installed dual boot Catalina 10.15.1 and Windows 10 (what can you see on other tropic(s) here)..
Now I have problem with battery and restarting in Catalina.
When is power cable plug-in everything is fine, but when is running on battery then its just restarts (sometimes after 2 minutes, sometines after 5 minutes, sometimes after 8 minutes, etc (you can't know the time when will it restarts))...
When is windows running everything is ok (on battery and on power plug-in cable)
So I would be grateful if can someone help me and fix that with battery..

For the past week I have installed catalina on 2 other disks (hitachi 60 gb and hynix msata 128 gb).
And on them, the catalina doesn't restart when the laptop is on battery and everything is excellent , so I reinstalled catalina on 1TB SSD Crucial MX500 and it's the same thing again (it restarts after a while when the laptop is on battery).
So something is wrong with the disk installation, so now I'm interested in how to fix it?

thx ..

After a month and a half of testing and disk changing, I bought a new Samsung SSD 500gb (evo 860) and installed everything from scratch (now catalina 10.15.3), and now I can write and say that Catalina works perfectly and no longer restarts. .
So I can definitely tell you that DON'T BUY an SSD Crucial MX500 because it's incompatible with both osx and Dell laptops (in my case, the E5550) ...
And another thing is that I bought wifi DW1560 card to replace the Intel card that was inside...
