one more tidbit - for some reason i didn't have any darkwake settings in my boot flags. i found that adding darkwake=0 or darkwake=8 improved the wake-from-sleep behavior in that a single keypress will wake and start the display. without any darkwake setting it required a 2nd keypress to wake up the monitor. however this still does not change the USB eject problem.
i also found that hibernation was not working - the system would crash when loading the sleep image. there seem to be some clover options like "fix hibernate" but i don't know what they do, so i just did the trick where you make a directory called /var/vm/sleepimage which apparently prevents the OS from writing the sleep image in the first place.
What keeps giving me a hard time regarding the sleep/wake functions after the USB fix is the "(AppleACPIPlatform) Wake reason: RTC (Alarm)", according to terminal. My computer will wake itself out of sleep sometimes. I did some digging on the web and was about to find some terminal codes that apparently helped with this. But I'm still having the RTC Alarm problem sadly. I have my "wake for ethernet" unchecked as well. I'm going to uncheck the power nap setting and see if that plays a role. Can't seem to figure this out. Kinda strange what you're experiencing. My darkwake has been left at the default setting since the beginning of my build. Sleep settings can be a real pain to dial down. Even people who have the same hardware sometimes experience varied issues
