My only problem now is the bright and sleep, the sleep dont start back, if I press the F1 key to sleep I have to reboot to start using again :(

How do I disable the shortcut on F1 key to sleep? (emergence solution for miss-clicks)

HD3000/HD4000 Brightness Fix:
DSDT Patches from here: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch

Apply:
"Rename GFX0 to IGPU"
"Brightness Fix (HD3000/HD4000)"
- rename patch must be done first and to all DSDT/SSDT that contain references to GFX0 that you're including in your final SSDT set
- Brightness patch must be done to the DSDT or SSDT that contains the definition for Device GFX0 (search for 'Device (GFX0)'
- Place DSDT and SSDT (if necessary) into a place where the bootloader will load them. For Clover, EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (DSDT.aml, SSDT-x.aml where 'x' is a number). For Chameleon, /Extra/ssdt.aml, /Exra/ssdt-1.aml, /Extra/ssdt-2.aml, etc.

A normal sleep, but dont wake up :/
Are you 100% sure it is going to sleep successfully? Do you have an outward indication of sleep (blinking power LED)?

obs: I didnt try to fix the bright yet sorry, I forgot to explain
Are you certain the laptop is not waking successfully, but the screen is just dark?

You need to understand specifically what's happening.

blinking power LED is ok, I think its a perfect sleep but no awake because the screen is dark but I cant go to sleep again, the system do not respond after the "wake up"

Try plugging in an external monitor (if you have that working), or connect via VNC after sleep. That will help you determine if it is brightness issue or something else.

You should also review your OEM SSDTs to be certain you're not dropping any that are required.

Here are also some very common DSDT patches: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch
"Fix _WAK Arg0 v2"
"HPET Fix"
"SMBUS Fix"
"IRQ Fix"
"RTC Fix"
"OS Check Fix"
"Fix Mutex with non-zero SyncLevel"
"Fix PNOT/PPNT"
"Add IMEI"
"7-series/8-series USB"

Good idea to use GenericUSBXHCI.kext and -gux_defer_usb2 also.

Also, if you haven't implemented backlight control, you should...

Finally, make sure power management is implemented correctly.
