Having a hard time getting power management to work. Pike's script recognizes the CPU and generates the SSDT, but if I use it I get the attached kernel panic. Booting without the SSDT allows the CPU to turbo etc, but at idle it sits at the base frequency of 1Ghz and never drops down to 500Mhz. GPU seems to work just fine tho. Intel Power Gadget shows it cycling from what appears to be a dead stop to 900Mhz.

I'm attaching my Clover folder, ioreg, the SSDT that I tried and a photo of the kernel panic.

One other thing of note is that the TDP for the chip is supposed to be 4.5W (m5-6y54) but it will use upwards of 10W on OSX and never goes above 6W on Win 10.

Did you try different SMBIOS?

I'll give that a shot. I just figured that the MacBook9,1 would be the best choice since it has the exact same processor. Don't get me wrong, it runs well as is, and the battery life is acceptable, but I can't get it to wake from sleep and that seems to be a PM issue more than not.
