there is an intersting article here about sleep/hibernate modes in real macs
mine was in mode0 , i set it to mode3 but i see no difference
both works... should i notice something?

edit: i forgot the link :censored2:
http://www.macworld..../sleepmode.html


You wouldn't see any difference between 0 and 3 unless there is a power failure. 0 suspends to ram, 3 suspends to ram AND disk, if power fails it boots from sleepimage.

11/17/08 3:18:32 PM kernel AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement: initialization complete
DSDT loaded
now some questions..
i blv that i have deepsleep (hibernate mac mode)
for example i tried this widget :http://deepsleep.free.fr/
and it sleeps normal (10 seconds the fans are on and then everything is quite)
when it wakes up should i see any progress bar ? (like system is restarting .. ..)
cause i see nothing, the hd loads and after 10-15 seconds i am able to continue osx as it was before

important:
at pcefi9 boot i can see :
Sleepimage has garbage
hibernate failed

garbage??? :D

so what do i do now?


and finally... wtf should i care about deepsleep in a desktop pc?

Netkas,

Heads up. USB ports on front panel aren't waking up for some people like myself.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Thanks,

Yep me ;)
As i see in profiler there are 2 kinds of USB ports
Some controlled by AppleUSBEHCI and others by AppleUSBUHCI
Only ports controlled by AppleUSBUHCI doesnt wake up.
Those ports are staying unpowered, mayby it could be fixed via dsdt patcher?

Hey people, a little help here...
I've changed manually the boot file in usr|standalone|i386 with the EFI9 boot file, everything is working here, just like the old efi8 boot file... my method is right?
I can't remember how to install the pcefi, long time using the efi8 and i forget how to make it...

EHCI ports are fine, UHCI ports will not wake up. So my usb audio devices won't play nicely. I believe these are devices that run in USB 2.0 only.

Hi, this is my report.
If go to Deep Sleep (hibernate mode 3), then wake up normally , but when I shut down the system I get a Kernel Panic an AppleHDA audio.
Reboot works fine after go to hibernate, but shut down not.

I'm using DSDT.aml override(WinXP Option) and Vanilla ACPIPlatform 1.2.1 and OpenHaltRestart.kext
If I use DSDT.aml (Darwin option) at wake up lost USB Keyboard.

when it asks you which system to overide you must choose XP?
cause i choosed OSX, if i choose XP it will copy my settings from there? (that are correct)
or it will destroy the XP partition?
i just wonder why pcefi says hibernate error at boot

I think the BIOS item you are referencing is called 'EHCI Handoff' - not sure if your DFI Lanparty board has a similar option in BIOS?

Intel mention it in section 5.1 of the following link on page 121 -
Click here for link to Intel PDF

also this message seems relevant -
USB EHCI Handoff Boot delay issue

I vaguely remember that there may be better USB driver kexts out there or you can add your specific chipset device IDs to an info.plist or something?

Finally all is working fine.
I,ve installed boot(PCEFIv9) with Chameleon for HD installer(replacing the boot file)
I use DSDT.aml file, choosed 0Darwin while compiling with -newHPET option.
Set Hibernate mode to 3
$ sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 3
I'm using AppleACPIPlatform version 1.0.3 in my /Extra/Extensions

No more AppleHDAudio kernel panic in Shutdown after wakeup.
USB OK after wakeup.

Now Ill try differents options, like AppleACPIplatform 1.2.1 and Hibernate mode 3.
