I'm having a similar issue with my new Mac mini that I just setup. It's the M1 version from 2020 running 12.6.  In my case I have a Logi keyboard that allows me to pair to multiple computers, so I have to switch it to the Mac mini to 'wake it up', then synergy will reconnect and allow access.  When looking at the normal logs from the client I see the following.

[2022-09-28T00:36:07] FATAL: A display invalid exception error occurred: failed to initialize screen shape
[2022-09-28T00:36:17] ERROR: process exited with error code: 1
[2022-09-28T00:36:17] INFO: detected process not running, auto restarting
[2022-09-28T00:36:18] INFO: starting client

I'm going to try turning on debug logging now to see if I get better logs.  Will probably open a support case as well.


Thanks,

Nevin

So with debug2 enabled here's the logging I see every 10 or so seconds.

[2022-09-28T09:43:59] DEBUG1: logging to file (/Users/nabsher/synergy.log) enabled
[2022-09-28T09:43:59] DEBUG1: starting client
[2022-09-28T09:43:59] DEBUG1: thread 0x00000002 entry
[2022-09-28T09:43:59] DEBUG1: caught cancel on thread 0x00000002
[2022-09-28T09:43:59] FATAL: A display invalid exception error occurred: failed to initialize screen shape

Repeats that until I manually wake up the client with the keyboard.  All the while the device is accessible via network connections, so it's not fully asleep.

Thanks,

Nevin
