Is anybody still running Mohave on this mo-bo? The question I have is regarding built-in bluetooth/wifi combo AR9642. Is it possible to use the on-board bluetooth (nevermind the wi-fi) yet have a fully working sleep behavior? Everything works fine for me except from that. When I exclude built in port my bluetooth sits on, OS sleeps like a baby. I have thought about an external usb dongle but I'm giving it one more shot. Cheers

Is your wifi/BT card replaceable ? USB dongles are known to cause sleep issues. I use a legit mac wifi card with adapter

Not as such, it's literally soldered onboard - Qualcom Atheros AR9642 wifi/bt combo. Functional under El Capitan, then partly functional in Sierra and High Sierra, unable to make wi-fi work in Mojave, BT only partly. Can be disabled from bios but not my point, I'm quite fixed to my Apple Wireless Keyboard and that's how far I'm interested in functionality. Is it possible to make this particular BT module not to wake the computer up? In System Report/Bluetooth I see Remote wake: on, unfortunately can't change that. Could that be the culprit? Is here someone using the same mobo/setup I wonder..

Hmm. Remote wake ...there's a bios setting to enable/disable that, right? Maybe its a USB issue (I believe wifi/bt combo cards are read as a quasi-USB device when creating my SSDT-USB.aml) Have you patched your USBs?

No settings for bluetooth in bios like that. Just enable/disable, same for Wi-Fi. I am fairly sure it's the Atheros combo issue (and the fact it's outdated and never really supported), I am trying to fix it before buying a compatible BT dongle.
As soon as the port HS04 is excluded/disabled, sleep works like charm.
