Advice on Building a Hackintosh with Sleep/Wake
I'm interested in building a hackintosh with good general performance but most of all, I'd like it to support Sleep/Wake so I don't have to boot up everytime I want to use the computer. I rarely ever shutdown my MacBook Pro and I'd love to be able to do the same on my workstation.
What can you recommend for Motherboard/CPU that will be supported with Sleep/Wake, and would be relatively painless to setup. I've had a hackintosh back in Tiger/Leopard days, I can patch a kext and stuff, using terminal is no problem too but I have no experience with DSDT whatsoever (though I'll probably have to learn) and would rather keep the tweaking needed to the minimum.
I've read about the Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H working with Sleep/Wake without DSDT, does this mean everything will be fully supported without post-install hassles?
Or would you rather go with a Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 ? And for what reason? (better supported?)
What about CPUs ? Buying a Ivy Bridge would be the logical choice hardware-wise, but it seems it will take some time before it is well supported. I've read it requires patching the kernel, which I'm guessing means attaching the disk on another machine and overwriting /mach_kernel ? Or is it more involved that this?
Thanks in advance for any advice you may have
Also, feel free to throw in any guide you may recommend regarding sleep/wake issues
