My xfx 6870 scores a fair amount lower after being waked up from sleep, is this normal?
I'm using novabench to test.

the picture shows before sleep first than 3 times after sleep, note I have GE=yes and get same results. This picture is with booting AtiConfig=Duckweed


thanks,

Jan

Changing system definition to IMac 12,2 fixed the problem for me, katiebug2u explains everything in this thread...

Thank you!, I still have a slight drawback tough on 12,2 , gonna try 12,1 now on my back up partition and see if that gives any better results, but this helped allot already :D

If I change my resolution from 1920x1080 to 1600x1900 and back to 1080 the cards works without a problem again, very weird stuff....

FIXED :D

If i use the iMac 12,2 in combination with anti pop (found here http://www.tomsick.net/projects/antipop.html)
This programs stops the sound from going to sleep, this doesnt happen on a mac pro by default but with iMac you need this to do it, works very nice :)
Now having 100% functionality :)

My Sons Z68X-UD3H Magic Mouse was laggy after sleep & for some reason we had used a Mac Mini definition, this thread reminded me to change to iMac 12.2 & now lag is gone.
