Guys, whenever I keep my laptop on sleep for a long time(a day or two) it doesn't wake up and crashes without booting into mac(10.14.5). On restarting the OS it displays this error:

panic(cpu 1 caller 0xffffff800cbc9973): "A kext releasing a(n) IOBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport has corrupted the registry."@/BuildRoot/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/xnu/xnu-4903.261.4/libkern/c++/OSObject.cpp:215

I am attaching the detailed error report along with the problem reporting files. Also, I have the proper setting set in BIOS.

Thanks.

So i have successfully booted Mojave 10.14.5 on my HP Probook 640 G1 (6x0)
Specs:
Core i7-4702MQ
HD 4600, 1366x768
HDD 500GB
8GB RAM
Everything works fine except for single and double click on trackpad and battery icons disappears when enabling it.
For trackpad:
The single tap and double tap work on the log in screen but as soon as i enter my password and log in it doesn't. It only moves the cursor and only scroll gestures work. It also does show trackpad settings on system preferences.
I have tried forcing HFS+J on the hard disk still the same, and still happens on APFS too. VoodooPS2controller is installed too. I have attached my EFI/CLOVER folder
For battery icon:
It just reverts when i enable it in SysPref.

Thanks for you time!

Ok so guys i think i have found the solution. Did some digging on github and found a trackpad.sh file that fixes the tap and gestures issues.
Link: https://github.com/boochtek/mac_config/blob/master/trackpad.sh To save right click on raw and choose save as or download link. To run the trackpad.sh: Right click>open with>other>utilities>terminal and open the script will run and complete, reboot and voila tap, tap and drag, three finger gestures, scrolling, etc. Note: If terminal is greyed out change Recommend apps to All Apps at the "Enable:" part

If you're using a conventional platter HDD (not a SSD), then you have to use HFS+J to get the battery to function properly, but if you absolutely have to use APFS on a HDD, then you need to add a boot flag argument to increase the delay of the battery subsystem kicking on before boot up to get the battery icon to function properly.

I'm on HFS+J on my HDD but I still have this problem. What boot flag exactly am I supposed to add to get this working? Any guides?

Thank you very much for your reply!
In the meantime I did much research about the card and therefore I found no acceptable solution for it. Downgrading kexts, as I found out, is also a security risk and can cause as well other problems, so it should not be done. Anyway, I didn't managed to get it working even with the downgraded kext. It had sleep issues etc. So, I just sent the card back and bought a USB card which seems to work right now.
Hi
Could you please share your clover?
I installed successfully 10.14.3, but I cant install/update 10.14.5. It seems the problem is in clover
