Hi,

I'm successfully running Hackintosh 10.12.6 and almost everything seems to be working ok.
I have an original Apple bluetooth keyboard that works mostly.... HOWEVER if i try to use the display brightness keys (up or down) it blanks out the screen and at first the ONLY way to recover was to reboot.

I did discover that when the screen blanks out... i am still able to vnc into the machine... and i need to LOG in again.
My previous session seems to disappear as all windows, apps etc have been closed.
This seems to suggest that my user session crashes back out to login screen maybe ?

Once i log in (via VNC) i use the 'Brightness' app i installed to adjust brightness (on the mac)..... and the phsysical display comes back to life and i can resume using machine as normal. So its my workaround of sorts.

Does anyone else use the apple bluetooth keyboard with their hackintosh ?
Does it work without issues?

FYI... i have a Fenvi card for bluetooth and wifi.

Cheers
cvee
