Current setup:

I'm working on a Razer Blade Stealth with an i7 8550U processor: https://www.razer.com/c/Refurbished-Razer-Blade-Stealth-H4/p/RZ09-02394E31-REFB

Current setup is being worked on in Github here: https://github.com/FadiniGIT/Razer-Blade-Stealth-Hackintosh-Guide/pull/4

1. I am using the backlight fixup details here and the backlight dimming works just fine using the keyboard shortcuts: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/applebacklightfixup/overview

2. Sleep works just fine

Problem:

The problem I am running into is that either sleep works *or* the backlight dimming works. I can't get both to work simultaneously.

If I have the SSDT-PNLF file in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched, dimming works fine, but when I wake from sleep or open the laptop after closing it, I get a black screen.

If I remove the SSDT-PNLF file, the screen is pegged at full brightness, but sleep and wake from sleep works as expected.

I've tried a bunch of different things and different approaches / kexts to the backlight issue to see if another approach worked, but I haven't been able to figure out anything that gives me both wake from sleep and backlight control working simultaneously.

Thanks for your help!

Sorry about that. Attached is an updated bundle that contains the IOReg file.

Do not delete kexts.
Note:
Code:
AppleHPM.kext - dependency 'com.apple.driver.AppleIntelLpssI2CController' not found.
AppleHPM.kext is missing dependencies (including anyway; dependencies may be available from elsewhere)
