b166r,

I have a problem with your new SSDT-EC. My BenQ monitor has an SD card reader connected through an USB port. With the new SSDT-EC it is not recognised (nothing happens) however with my previous SSDT-UIAC it was working fine.

Had a quick look at it and seen SSDT-EC has dependencies, which file should I look at?
See my previous SSDT-UIAC attached - only use back panel USBs

Did you copy USBPorts.kext to you /L/E/ or Other folder?

Yep, I have it in the /L/E/ folder.
There was a conflict with USBInjectAll which is not needed anymore. After removing USBInjectAll everything is working fine.

same mb;
last month sleep/wake works great;
but i did a stupid thing : Unplug the the battery cable in mb for recovery(cmos)
since then, i have never get a good sleep;
and i found that my dsdt/ssdt tables in origin folder is changed compared to my backup
download your github file and found that
backup's dsdt/ssdts = your dsdt/ssdts ≠ now dsdt/ssdts
how could i do with this situation?

A few weeks ago I changed the way how my build works with USB. This method doesn't require DSDT patches any more. I also delete all iGPU patches, because I use RX560 for video output.

Install and run EssentialsList.command. It will generate archive with «problem reporting» files on your /Desktop. Attached this archive to your post and I will take a look.

i use only uhd630
i am pretty sure that the sleep/wake problem is because of my dsdt/ssdt
it's not as same as my backup and yours.
i'm really confused

Sleep depends on proper USB port injection, darkwake options and pmset configuration. My config works only with USB ports on motherboard. It you connect front USB ports, some internal USB (water pump) sleep will not work.

I made a new EFI for you — https://d.pr/f/b8ACR5
Basically it is the same, but try to use this one.

Then you need to configure your pmset settings, and reboot. Sleep will not work without it.

After this, you need to check:
