Anybody have a sudden outburst of sleep issues with their Z370 + Catalina? My system worked perfectly on 10.14.6. It would go to sleep by itself, wake up with PowerNap, do its thing, and then go back to sleep. It would also wake fairly quickly with one click or a shake of the mouse. Then, without changing anything (aside from updating clover and kexts), it stopped going back to sleep after waking up from PowerNap under 10.15.0. I then upgraded to 10.15.1 hoping that would help. Now my system won't even go to sleep; it will go to sleep but then wake up two seconds later. And, as far as I can tell, it won't sleep after inactivity now either. I'm so frustrated at this. I just want my computer to sleep properly again!!

I'm having the exact same issue. Sleep is not working for me. Even reverting back from BIOS F13 to F10 did not make a change. Have you or anyone else found a solution in the meantime?

I ended up doing two things today that *seem* to have fixed the problem. First, I redid my USB mapping.

I also ran: pmset -g log | grep -e "Wake.*due to" in terminal. Found out after some googling and experimentation that my wireless mouse was preventing sleep. Never had a problem with it in Mojave but for whatever reason, Catalina doesn't like it. Unplugging the usb dongle before sleeping did the trick. That said, it could be a bigger issue with my USB port because even when it was turned off, with the dongle in, my computer wouldn't sleep. Anyway, now, as far as I can tell, sleep is working again.

Someone else mentioned that for some reason their EHCI Handoff had been set to disabled in the BIOS. That was causing them a lot of trouble and setting it back to enabled fixed the problem for them. Mine was enabled though so that wasn't the cause.

Are you using external graphics as mentioned in your profile? I'm trying to get it to work with iGPU. Could you upload your EFI folder for reference?

Is anyone here with AMD GPU able to get clover boot screen and initial apple boot logo in high resolution? After adding a RX-570 the boot clover theme is so big! Tried doing different things but no success. When I add the cmsdriver my screen goes blank an freezes.

When I used only the HD 630 I had no such problem.

Nope, no external graphics. Just have a dedicated GPU. Not sure how helpful my EFI will be given that it sounds like you’re trying for a different set up. I used the EFI for coffee lake Hackintoshes found in Corpnewt’s vanilla installation guide as a jumping off point though.

I get a strange behaviour after updating now to Catalina.

On boot it gets stuck on the Apple Logo progress bar. If I set the -v flag it boots fine.

I have disabled enabled SIP. Any help here would be appreciated.

most likely your kexts are not loaded correctly, you can check at "About this Mac" / System Report / Software / Extensions, sort by "Obtained from" and show the "Not Signed" ones
I've been having problems with Lilu 1.3.9, it worked well after returning to Lilu 1.3.8

please follow this guide for full acceleration in videoproc and in Hackintool VDA decoder fully supported.

In BIOS iGPU (your intel processor one) is enable so programs which can take advantage of it can use it.
