hi,
I have installed El capitan and patched DSDT, everything (brightness, usb, IGPU, keyboard backlit, fn keys, battery, touchpad, gestures) is working properly.
When I put my laptop into sleep the screen turns off instantly and fan turns off after a minute and Power LED starts blinking as it should in sleep mode.
But when I wake it up using Power button or any other button, nothing is displayed on the screen(screen remains off) and power LED which was previously blinking turns off permanently. Now pressing Power button only lights up the power LED for 2-3 seconds and nothing happens then(no display).
It is like Sleep of Death.
I have to long press power button to reset the laptop.

My laptop specs are:
ASUS ROG GL552JX
i7-4720hq
16gb Memory
250gb M.2 sata SSD(Crucial) - El Capitan installed in this drive.
1tb HDD

I am attaching my native DSDT, patched DSDT and IOReg file

Please help...

How did you managed to get osx El Capitan running on this device.{ GL552JX-CN009H (4720HQ-950M) },
using my own DSDT it never reaches installation window, i used DSDT and KEXT from javanese blog to get installer up and running but the problem is it gets stuck at windowserver and never starts installer.

Please tell me how did you managed to install El captain and if you still have your installation media - share your dsdt and patches.

you don't need a DSDT to reach the installer

I followed this guide "GitHub - javanesse/Asus-ROG-GL552JX-High-Sierra-10.13",
1. Used Terminal command to transfer (Install mac OS high sierra) app to USB, then patched clover bootloader, and as per the guide added some kexts and dsdt in install media.

Now when i boot from the USB i can see clover bootloader, but after few minutes of installation i get stuck at this "Window Server Service only ran for 0 seconds". and the GUI OSX installer is never reached.
What am i missing here ??

I tried adding boot arguments to disable nvidia card (optimus config), but no progress, tried to follow
RehabMan's guide to [FIX] "Window Server Service only ran for 0 seconds" with dual-GPU. with no progress.

"you don't need a DSDT to reach the installer", if DSDT are not to be added that what can i do to make it atleast install osx ??

i gave you a link to a laptop guide, it may be worth following that one, also upload your problem reporting files so we can see what issues there are

I'm using your clover config which you posted at the beginning of the thread. and voila everything is working now. ( From installation to OS X ), can you provide your latest clover ( i guess you might have resolved few minor glitches like brightness slider ...)

I need recent clover for GL552JX 4720HQ
