fyi I am using this patch for the F12 BIOS issue no complicated hack ;-)Probably the same reasons most people quit ... having to manually update and check each major/minor upgrade, feeling I didn't have a legitimate system, the F12 problem annoyed me (too low level a solution), the feeling that my system wasn't fully optimised.
It's true, I was lucky to build a stable fully working Hack and was pleased with it, but the above meant I had to manage backups and run checks etc. I just thought "I don't need this overhead". The Win10 alternative was sitting on the other drive. It's got dark mode at last and also my Magic Trackpad 2 works (with 3rd party drivers).
I just changed my default Clover boot disk and that's it.
Hmmm. 2 times (in 2.5 days) since going to F12 my machine has not woken from sleep. Monitor seems to wake but not resume DP connection. Then cycles through the inputs (1xDp, 2xHDMI) looking for a signal. Not finding one, the monitor goes to standby.
Not happy about this! Was previously 100% reliable waking from sleep. Maybe I've not set the BIOS settings as they were before. Maybe the F12 upgrade has some glitch. Maybe the modification procedure had some unintended consequence or maybe I didn't do it properly (most likely!).
To try and narrow down to the BIOS version, have gone back to F10.
If no sleep problems (a week minimum)(never mind a week, I couldn't wait) then I'll go back to F12 and see if I get them again.
[EDIT] have tested quite a few times under F10 with both light sleep and deep sleep. 100% response so far. Will keep testing and then go back to F12 in a while and see if can reproduce.
I have the same. Part bitbwith a 1080ti and running high Sierra. My sleep has never worked. It comes right back on every time. Did u make a custom dsdt for high Sierra? If so could you share it?If you select "sleep" from the main menu, the screen goes dark but the system LED stays on. After a configurable period ("turn display off after" in Preferences/Energy Saver), the system goes into full sleep and the LED goes off. That's what I mean by light/deep. I'm sure there's better terminology.*
Now I've set my "turn display off after" to only 1 minute, so it goes into full/proper sleep then. This is to help my testing.
After satisfying myself that F10 was okay (i.e. cycling quite a few times through sleep and full sleep) I couldn't wait to go back to F12. Have done that now and have not reproduced any failure to wake. But waiting to see how it performs.
No idea if I caused a problem or not. Have to wait and see. Sleep/wake has always been 100% for me. I like to leave the machine on but sleeping. If ever you try to wake a machine and its light comes on but there's nobody home ... it's a bad feeling
[Edit] * after looking up, there's screen off, then there's sleep and maybe also "safe sleep" or hibernate. I'm not sure what state my machine is in when the system LED is off. That's what I meant by deep sleep, but I don't know. Kind of hard to test. Anyway I went back to F12 and will see what happens.
