I'll try Atheros first and see if it is already on the whitelist of my HDX. I hope it works.
fyi Ebay BCM half mini pcie
but whitelist hack will be required
I don't usually use battery but I see your point.
thanks for the link/suggestions. They are really detailed and precise, as usual in your posts!
Unfortunately PleaseSleep is an application that force system to sleep after a few minutes/hours (that forces what actually power saving prefpane already does). In my case i would need an application that forces sleep when battery goes down under 10% because it doesn't go to sleep and computer powers off. Does it work for you in HDX18? I mean, when you reach low battery does your hdx18 go to sleep automatically when battery goes down(assumed it is properly configured for sleep/hibernate) ? It happens that i am working and i don't hear any sound message from battery-low warning so i see my computer powering off under my fingers without going to sleep (or hibernate).
I would need a solution for that ...
So you want to force OSX to hibernate instead of sleeping if the battery level is below a certain point. Since the battery level is too low there is no point of putting it into fast sleep and since the deep sleep isn't working for HDX, your only option is to hibernate.
I am pretty sure that this can be achieve by a script in Sleep Watcher.
A script that will watch the battery level and , say, if it is below 15 percent, it will change sleep mode to hibernate only and then force machine to hibernate.
I remember Valv shared one. Did you try that?
I don't know if wireless switch on-off button (same button with bluetooth) is going to work for me but that button is able to turn my bluetooth device on / off . I hope it works for wireless too.
Use tape to cover pin 20 (both side). I already tested this & it work. It keep the wireless device ON.
When you guys say "tape pin 20", do you actually put a tape on that pin.
Sorry if that sounds stupid but I am not good that pin, chip or cables.
