    Sleep on lid close causing panic and reboot

    Sleep used to be 100% on this machine, but then i tried Catalina it was too much of a beta for me. I redid Mojave with a reformat, reinstalled the needed kexts in L/E, reusing the good working DSDT from before since the EFI partition wasnt touched. I noticed things were wonky because after...

    Issue w/ ELAN touchpad (intermittently working)

    Do you have windows on this machine? You should be able to determine if the touchpad is I2C or not and its device ID. Just having TPD0 in the DSDT doesnt necessarily mean that its your device.

    Dell Vostro 14 5481

    Since you are using VirtualSMC.kext anyway, get rid of ACPIBatteryManager.kext. It is known to cause issues with VoodooI2C. Use SMCBatteryManager.kext (its bundled with VirtualSMC.kext when you download virtualsmc) in its place. I had a lot of jumpy/glitchyness until i swapped it out and got...

    Solved > Catalina Public Beta 2 installation hangs.

    There is a known issue with SMCBatteryManager.kext with Beta 2. Remove it and it should boot. Downside is you lose battery status until its fixed. But i'd rather have that then a system that doesnt boot at all.

    Help me fix sleep issues

    Spoke too soon, apparently earlier it wasn't actually sleeping yet. After letting it sit for a few minutes, it will not wake up on lid open, trackpad press, or power button. Shutting down via power button is the only way to get it working again.
