I understand that these is a very old machine with Arrandale graphics. However, I have been successful in getting everything working except sleep and backlight control. Have read thread after thread, re-extracted DSDTs multiple times in addition to a ton of other things.

Sleep issue: When I choose sleep in the apple menu, the screen turns off and I hear the fan spin down. However, almost immediately, it sounds like the computer is rebooting with spinning of the DVD drive but the screen remains black. One click of the power button will the computer off.

Backlight control: Have installed the latest recs from Rehabman. Unable to get slider to appear. Screen remains at 100%. Currently using F.lux for nightshift ability.

Have attached all files.
