Asus K43SD - DSDT Patch breaks restart.

Hello all,
I got many fixes in my dsdt, I cannot remember which ones did.:eek:
So far everything is working good (acceptable).
The latest fix that I applied to the DSDT was to turn off the nvidia optimus.
After the fix I cannot restart anymore, shutdown and sleep are still working. Also battery life improvement noticed and cpu temperature reduced by 4 degrees C.
Specs: K43SD - Notebooks & Ultrabooks - ASUS

Any help would be appreciated :encouragement:

I'm with you on that boat :(

I successfully disabled my GT540M on my Asus U46SV and everything works fine except restart.

I can live with that, but I'd like to fix it.

Cheers!

On the Probook (Radeon, but similar in concept).

We had to re-enable it in _PTS, then disable again in _WAK.

Hey, I didn't saw this response, until now. Thanks, I already tried that today using DON, and _ON methods on _PTS. Of course I have _PS3 and DOFF summoned on _WAK and on _INI methods to turn it off. Works like a charm!

Thanks for everything RehabMan!

Sorry for the banning. I'll be more careful to what I post.

Cheers!
