None, but you need certain drivers and kexts in order for it to work. For more information, check out a thread which I started. (Can be found under my profile.)

Clover Config
  • Acpi: AutoMerge, DSDT Patches(_OSI to XOSI, HECI to IMEI,GFX0 to IGPU, HDAS to HDEF,no need to rename EHC* as Chipsets post Skylake removed USB2.0 native support), SSDT PluginType checked
  • Boot Args: dart=0 -igfxnohdmi darkwake=0 -v -lilubetaall keepsyms=1 -wegbeta
  • Kernel Patches: Kernel LAPIC, KernelPM and AppleRTC enabled

DSDT Patch (only two static patches needed )

Sleep and wake

Use "USB _PRW 0x6D (instant wake)" patches for Skylake(and later). This patch will add Method(_PRW) { Return(Package() { 0x6D, 0 }) } to relevant Devices.
# There may be missing a "}" after applying the patch, which cause compile syntax error. Search for Method(_PRW) and find out the syntax error. If there is still wake problems (“wake reason” :XDCI CNVW XHC etc.), use Log Show to find the wake reason and search the specific Device (XDCI or CNVW) to see if Method(_PRW) is missing in the specific device.

Brightness adjustment keys
