I know you posted this a while ago but I didn't have this issue until I upgraded to the 17G2208 build of High Sierra. I tracked it down to the Biometrics support in OSX. It's looking for the Biometrics hardware (Fingerprint scanner and what not) that doesn't exist and keeps trying to do so for a few times before it gives up, which is why you get the system lag/beach ball when going to enter in a password.

My guess is everyone running this build will have this laggy password entering issue, so here's the fix that I figured out for it.

Since we don't have any kind of biometrics hardware support on this laptop, the simple fix is to navigate to System-Library-Frameworks and delete the following framework extensions:
BiometricKit.framework
BiometricKitUI.framework
BiometricSupport.framework

I made a backup of them, just incase, but I can't ever see a point where they will be needed. But after you delete them, reboot and you won't have the lagging issue when entering in your password anymore.

Hey since I put your efi and your plist I dont have the lag issues, so any of the kexts of your efi fix this issue. The only problem in this version is the no sleep and the brightness the rest is completely awesome. I will keep in this build until someone explain how to fix the sleep for dummies :D

What do you mean? If you're on the 17G2208 build of High Sierra you will have sleep and brightness control. I explained it a couple of pages back. All you need to do to make them work is upgrade to the 17G2208 build of High Sierra and update your EFI and Kexts with the ones I posted a few pages back that explains how to upgrade to this build.

Sleep and brightness will probably never work with the 17G65 build. So if you're holding out for that, it will more than likely never come. Which I don't think anyone on this thread is still working with that build, since 17G2208 has native support for our Intel graphics card and processor without faking Kaby Lake ID's.

The 3 minutes of no backlight is only an issue right after first boot/reboot. After that the issue is gone while the laptop is up and running. You can put it to sleep and wake it back up and the backlight works perfect. I'm sure there will be a fix soon for it, but for the time being, it's really not much of an issue unless you are always shutting down/restarting the laptop, but with sleep working, there's not much of a need to do so.
