Alright so Pavol after all your instructions (tytytytytyty) basically everything works.

problems

internal microphone --> Like MAC for Garageband also+skype+any other voip application
shutdown command --> Don't really care just sort of annoying
backlight --> Also don't really care, but would be hella tight.
wifi N --> don't care considering my whole network is taken to G anyways by my PS3

I'll post screen shot.
once I figure out the command .

Anyone that is getting the BLACK SCREEN:

Have you tried typing,

"GraphicsEnabler"=No

during the Chameleon boot screen before it boots into the OS? That fixed the problem for me. I have a Gigabyte 5870 2GB card that would go black and the fan would kick on to 100% whenever GE=Yes. If you change this and it works, make sure you go into the /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist and change this:

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>

to this:

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>No</string>

Save over it and you should be safe to restart with no issues.

Thanks,
Tony.

Not sure what that means either. I guess the only thing that really bugs me is the sleep, the lack of mic, and the inability to disable the touchpad when I'm not using it. Other than that, this laptop is pretty close to a permanent replacement for the 17" mbp.

So i tried updating to 10.6.7. DO NOT DO IT. I get a KP right when I boot into it. I'm guessing it has something to do with something that pavol customized? I'm not sure but it didn't work. I'll try to update with anything else I find.

Uploaded the file for dsdt

So I updated to 10.6.7 by using the combo update and going through the steps again because I'm pretty sure the update will mess up the boot file that will give you a KP when you restart. So if you want to update to 10.6.7, download the combo update and then just go through the first post and everything should be better. I'm not sure if there are any improvements yet but I'll try to keep things updated.

edit: sleep still doesn't work.

I'm not sure what exactly you're listing up there but I'm not sure how to use the DSDT. Would installing it using ##### mess up the ##### from the very beginning?

Also the GPU is the mobility 5870.

The AppleHDAdisabler actually made the sound worse so I took it off.

I already installed chameleon and checked the generate P and C states but I'm not sure where to find the NativePM. If you could provide a screenshot of what you're talking about that would be helpful. It would help if you helped with the DSDT too since I haven't messed with this stuff since 05'.


EDIT: So i was able to install the DSDT and by doing that I needed to use the HDA disabler if I use voodooHDA. I also kind of merged what I thought was correct so everything is working as good as it did before the 10.6.7 update. The only improvement so far is I can shutdown now. SLeep still doesn't work and the touchpad is still as annoying as ever. Not sure about the mic though and it seems that the wifi is still G only.

I think new mac_kernel will be needed to be able to use 10.6.7

Hopefully with the new kexts from the new update, we can take out the boot file and make everything work. There has to be a way to manually disconnect or disable the touchpad when we're not using it. Anybody good with applescript?

I did what MaLdon said and basically the comp will go to sleep but won't wake from sleep and the trackpad doesn't work anymore.
