On the 1st page of this Guide there is warning that Autopoweroff & Hibernation mode should be disabled as deep sleep can lead to system corruption?
is this only valid for NVME 512b Drives installed and not important for SATA M.2 drives?

I've swapped default Toshiba NVME drive for SATA M.2 drive with 512b sectors size.

here is an output of sudo pmset -g terminal command:

$ sudo pmset -g

System-wide power settings:
Currently in use:

Hybernation and autopoweroff are sat to 1 ....
can I keep it this way or?

updated my profile and signature

will this "memory" and CPU display issue cause anything on the long run , should I be worried?
would need to see your new config.plist

Kabylake should be using:

this fixed my audio distortion:

you should not be using a sortedorder when using hotpatch files

for your memory module issue, you will need to remove:

Should I use Clover Configurator for correcting my processor and hardware profile to MacBookPro 14,1 or?
Should I use Clover configuratior or PlistPro to edit string of code in plist?

never use clover configurator to edit your own config.plist

you could use it and generate new smbios info, save that file to your desktop as info.plist for example, then open it up in xcode or plisteditpro and copy and paste the info to your config.plist

use plisteditpro or xcode

you could make SortedOrder #SortedOrder or just remove the entry
