The instructions are included with sleepwatcher. Read the manual.

To see if sleepwatcher is running:

log show -last 1000|grep sleepwatcher

If the daemon is running you should see it in the log. Else you did not install it correctly.

I installed sleepwatcher. But still can not restart bluetooth. Maybe my rc.wakeup file is wrong. Can you share me your rc.wakeup file ??? Thanks you

So I bought the BCM94360CS2 with a PCIe adapter to get Airdrop, handoff and sidecar to work on my Hackintosh but so far I had no success getting bluetooth to work. Wifi worked flawlessly OOB. Bluetooth works on my Windows Boot but in Monterey enabling bluetooth does nothing. I've searched everywhere but can't find any solution. Anyone know what to do? This is what I get in System Information:

Edit:
I solved it!!! The USB Internal Header for Bluetooth wasn't properly mapped. It works OOB now aswell!

My BCM94360CS2 just work native. Dont need kext at Monterey. Let check your USB map. Bluetooth port need to set at 255 (internal)

yup. I fixed with sleepwatcher and script restart bluetooth after sleep. Now it work good. Just wait 5 second when your hackintosh wake. Sleepwatcher will do it. Check page 128 at bottom

This is great, but I cannot figure out how to install correctly! What files and where exactly to copy, e.g rc.wakeup?
Please help me.

I lost 2 days for set up sleepwatcher. Let check readme.txt bro. You need to install sleepwatcher app, set up location for rc.wakeup, and copy plist file for work
