    Nvidia Fermi Sleep / Wake / Freeze Thread

    I've posted in several places that I had my 550Ti working OOB in Mountain Lion. Well, I see now that it's not true! I am having such severe difficulties that I had to revert to a backup of Lion. Something is seriously broken with this card under ML.

    I invite you to share your own issues in this thread, but please focus on the *post-installation* experience. :)

    Background: My build is a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 running the U1H bios, Intel i7 3.4, 8 GB RAM (1333), a bunch of hard drives, native Wifi and Bluetooth, and a EVGA GeForce 550Ti graphics card.

    Running without a DSDT (the U1H bios doesn't need one), I have my system working *perfectly* in Lion. I am running stock speeds on my processor and everything behaves exactly as it should; it's at least as stable as my actual Apple iMac. Sleep and wake works exactly as it should using USB keyboard/mouse or the power button.

    I installed Mountain Lion over a working Lion partition (used for experimenting) and after a few hiccups in the installation process, everything was working beautifully...or so I thought.

    Here are the issues:

    When the computer sleeps, either manually or automatically, it does not wake properly from sleep. I will get a functional mouse cursor over either a screen of garbage or a black screen. The mouse is not frozen, but I have no system functionality. Console.log is full of Nvidia "exceptions!" and other NVDA errors.

    When the computer is idle for any period of time, I also get symptoms that appear to be related to the "Fermi freeze" - eternally spinning beach ball with the inability to force quit apps or do anything at all. This requires a system reboot, which then sometimes sends the mother board into a brief CMOS event / boot loop, requiring 3-5 tries before post.

    Before I realized that there was a major issue here, I had installed over my primary Lion installation, which then became plagued with similar issues.

    Here's what I've tried:

    - A brand-new, clean installation on a fresh partition, once with the Nvidia card installed, and once with it removed (using the built in Intel graphics to install).
    - Booting the computer with GraphicsEnabler=Yes and GraphicsEnabler=No (will not boot with video if GE is set to "no")
    - Installing updated CUDA drivers (no change)
    - Toggling the various Power settings on the motherboard (no change)
    - Testing from the very first boot into the clean install, vs. after installing ethernet and sound drivers individually, etc. (no change)
    - Installing the Nvidia OpenCL drivers (causes a kernel panic on boot)
    - Toggling Energy Saver control panel settings (no change)
    - Setting darkwake=1 (no change)

    Restoring the Lion system has restored full and complete stability to my system, including working sleep/wake.

    Can others experiencing similar symptoms post here? I would also be grateful for any other insights / suggestions on how to approach this problem. Many thanks!

    Yeah I'd like to chime in with the same problem here. Same card EVGA GTX 550 Ti.

    A central place for all our efforts is our best bet to get this figured out.

    Other than this my install is working great (no sleep, but I haven't tried to figure it out yet)

    Me too with an eVGA GT430. Stuck in the old 9500GT and no issues at all. I even have opencl support OOB. Would very much like to resolve fermi issues.

    Issues with GT430, blue freeze when changing res. Odd graphics glitches in 3d games, corrupted graphics on exit of games. Graphics corruption with working cursor on wake from sleep. OpenCL device showed up in luxmark but was unusable.

    Lots of messages like the following showing up in the console.
    7/26/12 2:55:56.000 PM kernel[0]: NVDA(OpenGL): Channel exception! exception type = 0x1f = Fifo: MMU Error
    7/26/12 2:55:56.000 PM kernel[0]: NVDA(OpenGL): Channel exception! exception type = 0x1f = Fifo: MMU Error
    7/26/12 2:56:16.000 PM kernel[0]: NVDA(OpenGL): Channel timeout!
    7/26/12 2:56:17.000 PM kernel[0]: NVDA(DMA): Channel exception! exception type = 0x1f = Fifo: MMU Error

    At least all of our symptoms are relatively the same..should make it easier to find a fix for everyone.
