Here is the SSDT-PRW with the DSDT patch screenshot from my debug files.
I see you have SSDT-prw. But did you set the patch in your DSDT is what I’m asking

I don't use DSDT only SSDT hot patch with DSDT clover patches.

try removing the clover patch and see if it works using only SSDT hot patch

OK I disabled the clover patch and the laptop still sleeps with a USB device plugged in, but once you try to wake the computer, the screen still doesn't wake unless I push a button.

Yes exactly. Also I realized even though disabling the patch caused the computer to remain asleep when I tested the first time, the next reboot caused it to wake up immediately when a USB device was attached so I need both the SSDT-PRW.aml and Clover patch to get sleep with USB device attached.

Hey everyone so I confirmed from a real Mac that the screen is supposed to wake up automatically once the lid is opened. Wonder what and why my Dell Inspiron 7567 doesn't. Does anyone have a solution that could cause this?

Edit: I've figured out what is causing the LED screen not to wake automatically. It appears to be Darkwake. It's weird though because first test I did was disable darkewake=0 then I set it to 1 followed by 2 which all 3 of those allows my laptop screen to wake without having to press a button. Is there a proper way to keep PowerNap enabled without having to specific the darkwake= setting in boot args? Also if there is no way and I have to specify Darkwake, what is the proper one I should be using?

Make sure its actually sleeping. When i tried darkwake flags some didnt work at all, while others broke lid sleep and the laptop stayed on. Admittedly ive only done 0-3 so far, but i havent had luck with it.

Thanks for the advise. It does appear to sleep both with lid close and wake when lid is opened. Also the laptop sleeps when selecting sleep in the menu bar. I wish there was a way to see if Power Nap still works with Darkwake=2. Do you know if there is a command to check power nap or how long the computer is sleeping for so you know if it woke up and went back to sleep automatically?
