Hi everyone,

This is my first laptop on which I got macOS decently running. This is also my very first post on any forum. (please, correct me if I do something wrong)

At the moment I have it running really well. Except for a few issues, could anyone help me out?

- When I install the fake-lciid kexts for BCM57765 in s/l/e my card reader stops working. As I need it more than I need Ethernet, I chose not to use for now. Any fixes?
- Only closing the lid will put the laptop to sleep, the apple menu and waiting only sleep for 1 sec.
(PWRB GLAN EH02 (user) , when pressing key after successful sleep; GLAN EH02 when waking after failed sleep)
- Battery status only updates on certain boots, other times I have to manually refresh by switching percentage on and off
- can't disassemble aml files anymore without errors, which I find annoying as I did not have problems on previous installs...
- Audio (voodoohda messes up the mic, and has poor volume)
- BCM4322 (Dell dw-1520), whitelist problems, any help? (using arptenabler atm)

also

- This laptop does not wake when opening the lid, not in Windows, not in macOS. Is that implementable via DSDT?

Your profile is missing important details (such as screen resolution and chipset). Please fix as per FAQ:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.164990/

Your kextcache output proves kexts are not installed correctly.
All kexts you need must be installed to the system volume.
Read post #2 of the Clover guide for details:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

You need to patch for "instant wake". See ACPI patching guide:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-patching-laptop-dsdt-ssdts.152573/

Also, remove SSDT-2 and SSDT-3 from ACPI/patched... No need to patch SSDTs with Intel graphics only... do all renames with config.plist/ACPI/DSDT/Patches. See guide for good starter plists:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

I forgot to mention, I already disabled GT640M in ssdt3 and dsdt. Now added to profile. SSDT2 originally contained cpu information, I could just ignore that, remove it, and use the aml provided by ssdtprgen?

- Help me out here, I thought injecting kexts with clover was preferred over installing in /l/e or s/l/e. Will I find problems if I had kexts in e.g. S/L/E and injected via clover? Anyway, removed some from clover and installed in S/L/E. Should be visible in new debug files. Do I need to install all of them there, or...?
- Deleted SSDT-2, replaced with SSDT.aml from SSDTprgen.sh.
- Sleep still only works by closing the lid, apple menu and timing out don't work.

Power management is covered here:

I can tell you haven't read the guide, post #2.

Will I find problems if I had kexts in e.g. S/L/E and injected via clover? Anyway, removed some from clover and installed in S/L/E.

As per FAQ, kexts go to /L/E, not /S/L/E.

- Deleted SSDT-2, replaced with SSDT.aml from SSDTprgen.sh.

- Sleep still only works by closing the lid, apple menu and timing out don't work.

Keep in mind sleep is delayed by 15-20 seconds always.
And all assertions must be clear.
You still forgot to patch for "instant wake". Please read the ACPI patching guide carefully.

Okay. Should be fixed now. Thanks for sticking with me .

- Instant wake patches did not work. Both (ivy-bridge ready ones) made the situation worse. I'll just close the lid from now on.

- Implementing this code...

Code:
#Edit methods _Q11 and _Q12 to interface with KBC0 (or PS2K in some systems),
into method label _Q11 replace_content
begin
// Brightness Down\n
Notify (MSE0, 0x20)\n
end;
into method label _Q12 replace_content
begin
// Brightness Up\n
Notify (MSE0, 0x10)\n
end;
...f:beachball:cks up maciasl, giving me the error:
Code:
1, 4096, syntax error, unexpected $end, expecting PARSEOP_DEFINITIONBLOCK
Bug, or am I doing something wrong?

- As for kexts, I think I fixed it. All of them are now in /L/E (no, I did not carefully read your guide last time), only necessary kexts in Clover.

this link may help:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-native-power-management-for-laptops.175801/

Code:
sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0
sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage
sudo mkdir /var/vm/sleepimage
sudo pmset -a standby 0
sudo pmset -a autopoweroff 0

also config.plist:
InjectKexts should be set to Detect

that's because it is loading the appropriate kexts in /Library/Extensions :)
