hi, thank you for the guide. i have the exact same model exept the last 4 digits(country code i guess).
my question is, with my lenovo wireless mouse receiver plugged in, sleep doesn't work. it wakes up immediately(mouse is off). If I remove the receiver, it will sleep just fine. is this a normal behavior? also, it takes about 10 seconds to sleep. is this also normal? you know, i always make sure it really sleeps before closing the lid.

Regarding taking 10 seconds to sleep, yes that's normal. Regarding the usb mouse receiver, I haven't tried it yet, But I don't think it should prevent sleep. Maybe you need to make a custom patch specific to your USB ports, which Is what I recommend in the guide.

hi again, did you ever lose audio after sleep? it happened on me today. I wonder if using "os-x-eapd-codec-commander" is a good way to fix this issue.

Nope, never faced this issue.
