Hi,

I have problems with the sleep option in OS X Sierra. The monitor turns off and the system is up and running and if I click the mouse the monitor wakes up. No panic no nothing.

How can I fix it ?

Mobo: Gigabyte B85M-D2V
CPU: Intel Pentium G3220 (using fake CPU ID for Intel Core i5)
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 210 1 GB with UEFI GOP
RAM: Kingston 8GB
SSD: Kingston V300 60 GB

Kind of similar: Mac goes to sleep. When woken up via Mouse/Keyboard the PC and display turn on but nothing appears on the display, only the display backlight is on. Connected to a GeForce 750 TI via Displayport.

Edit: Sierra of course

My Sierra sleep issue is a bit different. It'll go to sleep but on wake the computer will restart.

I had issue with waking on my Z170x Gaming 5 and GTX980. It would just display black screen and restart after a few minutes. I added the boot arg darkwake=0 and so far it seems to have fixed the problem. I'll have to test it overnight to see how it does for long periods of sleep.

Setting darkwake=0 didn't work for me sadly.

This fixed it as far as short sleeps go. Additionally I switched to 'request pw after an hour' and all my tests so far were shorter than that. There's a slight chance that waking directly to desktop could alter the waking behavior, at least in my opinion. Maybe someone that still has this problem could test that.
