@strichcode, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard. Your motherboard is not 10.10.1, with clover bootloader

In my case resolving the instant wake issue required a change of network card in my z170n. I had already swapped the bundled network card with a broadcom BCM94352Z, but in the end it turned out that using an official card BCM94360CS2 lifted from a mac solved this and other issues. I'd read it would allow me to use my magic keyboard and mouse in BIOS and clover boot screen over bluetooth. This became an issue after I installed windows and needed to plug a usb keyboard in each time I needed to change the boot option on the clover screen. I can now use my bluetooth mouse and keyboard in bios and clover screen, and it has also had the welcome side effect of fixing the issue where my hack would wake a second or 2 after the hard drive sleeping. No doubt it was an issue with active bluetooth connections not letting the hard drive sleep, I can't explain how the card resolves it, but it does.

Hope this helps. It's made my hack pretty close to perfect.

I recently experienced the 'immediately wakes from sleep' issue on my hack running 17,1 smbios.

The solution that worked for me, and which was SHOCKINGLY EASY, actually didn't require ANY DSDT editing whatsoever:

1. Go to System Preferences > Energy Saver
2. Ensure that that checkbox called 'Enable Power Nap' is UNCHECKED
3. Happy napping kids!

Hope this helps some of you. I think it has something to do specifically with the 17,1 smbios, since previously I was using Mac Pro 3,1 and never encountered this issue.

I’ve been having some very similar with the BCM94360CS.
It goes to sleep and 2 seconds it wakes.

Wake from Normal Sleep [CDNVA] : due to XDCICNVW/ Using AC (Charge:0%)

I have double checked my USBPorts.kext and ALOT of debugging but no luck.

Anyone have any ideas?

I have a slightly different version of this with my Mojave Hackintosh (now on my spouse's desk). It worked fine when it was on my desk, but now behaves strangely. The symptom: the first time you tell it to sleep, it bounces back to life (except for the screen) immediately. But the second time, it goes to sleep properly.

I'm puzzled. The only thing that has changed in its move from one desk to another is, of course, the USB peripherals (different kbrd, wireless mouse with dongle, different game controller). So I'm guessing it has something to do with one of those peripherals. The workaround is annoying but do-able (tell it twice when you want it to sleep). But it's a little annoying.

Has anyone else seen "sleep successful every other time" behaviour?

I have a similar problem. My suspicion is that it is the internal USB 2.0 motherboard connector and the LED devices (2 of them) that are been run through these devices.

Really interested in a solution.

Hello,

From a week ago, my Intel NUC7 began to wake up by itself only 1-2 seconds after sleep (but keeping monitor off). I think it began after installing a system security update.

So, after reading some threads from the forums, I tried this:
Code:
# sudo pmset proximitywake 0
Well, what I really did was the equivalent setting with Hackintool (since this tool warned me about this parameter, as it was set with a value of 1). But this it what this tool modified afterall.

I also added this parameter to the boot arguments.
Code:
darkwake=0
And the problem was gone.

Hope this helps.

Thanks tzalbach. I will try that. The afflicted machine has recently lost its LAN capability (argh). I notice that since it lost ethernet connectivity, the sleep problem has disappeared. So I hazard a guess that it's somehow waking on network traffic. It wakes everything, including the monitor.

Prior to losing the LAN function on the mobo, the sleep problem had been getting worse over time. There were days when it would not sleep no matter how many times it was told to. But then on other days it would only take 2 or 3 tries. When I have ethernet again I'll try your proximitywake setting and see if that fixes the problem.
