Okay I have a very dumb macOS question because I feel like I'm getting crazy.
Is the "Auto" mode for Dark/Light mode supposed to change to either modes _when_ macOS is used? I see conflicting reports about this and I'm starting to think it's only supposed to change the theme while the system is locked/on sleep or something 🤔
@Eramdam Having used it a lot since Catalina : macOS will try very hard not to switch mode when you’re looking at it.
So yes, in practice that means it only switches when the Mac is locked and/or put to sleep.
@Eramdam My feeling is that this is done because many Mac apps aren’t able to switch from dark to light mode (and vice versa) elegantly, unlike on iOS/iPadOS
