darkwake=8 for sleep

Any documentation for this? Why does it work?
Hi, there are several states you can set your computer to anywhere between darkwake=0 and darkwake=10.

The darkwake states work somehow different from each other. e.g. darkwake=0 disables it, darkwake=1 and darkwake=2 enable sleep states and power nap.

From darkwake=3 to darkwake=7, I'm not sure what it does. It seems some settings enable sleep but disable power nap. There is little or no documentation on this. Try different darkwake settings to see which one works best for you. On my High Sierra Hackintosh I was using darkwake=2 and sleep and deep sleep worked fine.

Each configuration is particular for each hardware, but it is usually::

darkwake=0 -> Power Nap Disabled
darkwake=1 -> Power Nap Fully Enabled (System fully wakes. Fans on, monitors on, Hourly)
darkwake=2 -> Power Nap Enabled (System sleeps properly and wakes up time to time to do some stuff)
darkwake=3 -> Unknown
darkwake=4 -> Unknown
darkwake=5 -> Unknown
darkwake=6 -> Unknown
darkwake=7 -> Unknown
darkwake=8 -> Power Nap Enabled (System Fully wakes, sometimes monitor come on, sometimes not [don't know why])
darkwake=9 -> Unknown
darkwake=10 -> Power Nap Enabled (Fans & monitors do not come on, system.log show the times that the computer woke from sleep. Time Machine Backup are performed hourly in sleep mode)

Fully accelerated graphic, both HDMIs working simultaneously.
Hi, @bjgo, I'm building a similar hackintosh only with a i3 8100, you think you should change something in the Config.plist for acceleration. The components will arrive in a few days but I'm preparing everything to do the tests,

greetings

actually, no

there is a book, called "клевер цвета хаки"
it's written by one of clover bootloader creators
not sure it was ever translated to english...
"darkwake" is mentioned only once as "internal stuff, don't touch this"

darkwake always mean a pure guess game
but from my expirience - 8 is pretty stable

you should make your own config.plist
or at least remove fb patches
my framebuffer patches can cause a blackscreen after boot
(but if you have vnc installed or something like that you will see desktop)
or more likely cause a kernel panic
