    I have:

    i7 950 @4Ghz
    1333 RAM@1200Mhz
    OSX 10.6.2

    I have as yet been unable to get sleep working.

    Anyone know any good resources for troubleshooting this area?

    Thanks for the new forum Tony.

    You can try the sleep DSDT fixes from my blog- they should be similar for your board. Good luck!

    Be carefull with sleep mode!

    Put the screen in to sleep it's good for the monitor.

    But if you want to put the hard disk(s) to sleep .

    From my personal experience it's not a good thing even on real Mac, :( can freeze your disk and loss data)

    For what it's worth - I have never seen a Mac lose data after being put to sleep. I would have to say there would most likely be another factor that caused the data to be lost.

    I agree with bradrel, there should be no issues with sleeping your machine. Data loss is almost impossible with sleep, unless the machine totally freezes instead of sleeping and requires hard reset. Even then your mac is using a journaled disk, which prevents this sort of data loss from occuring. I would not hesitate getting sleep working on your machine. It saves power and makes the machine totally silent while sleeping. In my case it takes about 2 seconds from hitting a key on my keyboard until desktop is back up with net. Apple makes OS X handle sleep really well since most macs are macbooks these days.

    Is the guide I following and it worked perfectly. UD2 v1 F5 in my case.

    2 ideas:

    Make sure you have S3 selected for ACPI suspend in your bios as shown in this guide:

    http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2009/11/ ... etail.html

    Remember optimized defaults, AHCI, S3 suspend mode.

    My other idea is more general troubleshooting tip. You seem to have your settings to sleep after 10 minutes, change the setting to never in your energy saver preferences. Then make sure the only thing plugged into your pc is keyboard/mouse (Do not use the usb ports next to the Purple/Green ps/2 style plug) Then manually sleep (Apple menu)
    See what the power led does on your case. Usually in S3 it goes completely off, but sometimes it does a slow flashing. (In my case S1 does a flashing, S3 is off)

    Hopefully at this point your system is in S3 suspend mode. To wake, press any key on your keyboard.

    I can help troubleshoot, but you need to read the sleep guide carefully and make sure your bios settings are correct.

    Also give more details in your next post. It helps to know all your settings.

    Hi ER800. You are very welcome.
    Not sure what your emoticon and lol indicated here. You said computer sleeps like a baby. Good. What I am curious is does it wake up like a baby crying in the middle of the night? ;) (does it resume from sleep when you hit a key, and computer behave normally?)
