Not that I know of.
Weird. I found posts I made in 2014 for example on "Guide to install Maverics with Clover boot loader", but my join date for example has changed to July 2015 and none of my old posts aren't included in the post count. It doesn't really matter, just curious how that has happened.

On my search to get brightness control working I found that_BCL, _BQC, _BCM are important. I couldn't find these in my DSDT. Can someone tell me where to look for them. A SSDT perhaps? I also have no Applebacklight or ACPIbacklight.kext on my laptop. PNLF is in the DSDT. I found a GFX0 device at [FONT=Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif]addr 0X0002000. Is this the right device for brightness control? What other information is needed to get brightness control working?[/FONT]

RehabMan,
When using the quiet fan patch on PBI, does it only need HPFanReset.efi and then ACPIPoller can be deleted from kexts?

Also what is the difference between these two files?

(From latest PBI-CE) HPFanReset.efi, size 17kb, date 4.9.2014 5.09
(From Bitbucket v1205) HPFanReset.efi, size 4kb, date 5.12.2013 22.43

Check assertions:
Code:
pmset -g assertions
Keep in mind there is a 15-20 sec delay even with no assertions to clear.

AppleBacklight.kext is in /S/L/E. It is placed there by the OS X installer.

_BCL,_BQC,_BCM are ACPI standard backlight methods. You will see them in your DSDT. They are used by ACPIBacklight.kext. They often do not work. You can write custom versions (that do work) in PNLF.

GFX0 @2 is Intel graphics.

Bitbucket is official release. I'm not sure which build PBI-CE is using. It is a very simple chunk of code, so likely the two versions do the same thing but might have used different compilers or with different options (larger one might be a debug build).

What could then my Nvidia card be? PEGP at 0x001000? According to the System Report and Windows an HPs specs I have an Nvidia K1000m.

And _BCL,BQC,BCM are not found in the DSDT.
