    EDIT 2 (SOLVED): Okay, so after doing further research I resolved the issue following the steps in Problem 6 located here. Appreciate this forum and all the people who have made this site!

    EDIT: Okay, so I removed the GPU and it booted back into the OS without issues. I then removed the GPUSensors.kext and reinstalled the GPU. The system loaded fine without issues but it's defaulting to the OS X Default Graphics Driver. I tried to switch it to the NVidia driver but every time I reboot it goes back to the default driver. Can anyone recommend anything to try and fix that?

    Hello All, not sure if this is where I should post my issue (If not please move to correct thread) but I just purchased and installed a EVGA 1060 6Gb (You can find the card here ) and before I installed the card I installed the Web Drivers without issues and made the necessary changes to the config.plist file. I go to boot up the system and I get a KP (see screenshot). Not sure what to do now as I am new to this whole hackintosh thing. I do have my config backed up in case I have to restore it. If anyone can provide assistance I would greatly appreciate it! If more info is needed please let me know!

    PS: Everything was working fine before the card was installed: iGPU and Audio.

    Further information:
    -SMBios: 14,2
    -Sierra 10.12.6
    -Latest Nvidia Driver from Nvidia

    Yes. There are several ways to recover.
    - move the cursor to the lower right corner (hot corner); or
    - logout and then log back in (PITA to try to do); or
    - sleep again for 2-3 seconds and re-awake.

    I also use this utility which I place on my Desktop. It is a script that does the same as the last item above.

    yup that's what I did, I tried to logout and logback in, and put the computer to never sleep at all LOL, left it overnight, turned of the display and looks fine, I hope there's is a better fix on this. :)

    I tried the script, GTX1060 fix, now what happened was when you wake up the the machine it woke up like a TV without a signal.

    how can I remove the GTX1060 fix from the system?

    The script is just like an app. If you don't want to use it, trash it.

    BTW, over the last couple of days, I've put my system to sleep over night. It wakes up just fine, like you mentioned. So, the problem is for short term sleep/wake-up. Interesting!
