I have built a hackintosh with the GA-Z68X-UD5-B3, Asus HD6870 and OCX Vertex 3 SSD and 16GB Corsair Venergance 1866. I have installed vanilla 10.7.2 from USB drive (prepared with Kakewalk). After the first boot I used ##### to install Chimera, the DSDT.aml from tonymac, iMac 12.2 system identifier. That's it.
Only modification to BIOS (version F7) was HPET set to 64 mode and SATA mode to AHCI. I also disabled onboard audio because I don't use it.
The system works just like a mac, power management works great, even on the Ati 6870, sleep works (but you have to keep clicking the mouse until you see the desktop). I stressed the system in some benchmarks about 3 hours and it's rock solid.

Have you ever had sleep working properly on this build?

Try booting with

-v darkwake=no

Then sleep the machine via the apple menu, once off, leave for a few minutes then click the mouse every half second until you see the desktop. Don't just bash away at the keyboard/mouse, it will make no difference.

If this gets your desktop back but kernel panics immediately, post the panic and try again with the same boot options.

When I recently updated iTunes and Safari I started having this problem. I added the dark wake option and it KP'd the first time I tried, I tried again and I've not had a panic since.

You might also want to give chameleon a go if you are using chimera, just make sure you use a revision with the iCloud/facetime fix. (worth a go if all else fails)

**** UPDATE ****


MY HACKINTOSH IS ALMOST PERFECT - ONLY ONE PROBLEM, NOT SURE IT WILL EVER BE SOLVED??


Well I have just lived with the inability to get my Hackintosh to go to sleep. I really wish I could get this feature working again, it worked when I had Snow Leopard working with the Magic Installer, I know that lion was a new set of problems to overcome but the sleep issues seems to plague a lot of users.

I purchased a 4 DVI Port Video Card ATI Radeon 4850X2 about 4 months ago from a guy on craigslist and after an all day job of installing it, swapping out the power supply for a more powerful one and figuring out what I needed to make it work, I got it installed and working perfectly with 3 Apple Monitors. ( I used ##### ATI 48xx Injector, then rebooted then used the ##### ATI patch for 10.7.2 ) IT WORKS PERFECTLY!


I was hoping that this would fix the sleep problem but still it's a no go. When I put the computer to sleep it powers down perfectly. When I power it back on, it powers up perfectly, just the screens stay dark and will not come back on again.

Can this be fixed?? Is there a solution to this??? Has anyone with this problem been able to fix it and get it working???

I would love for sleep to work so that I don't have to keep turning my computer off.

{"JamesLittler" I have tried the -v darkwake=no still the computer screens will not come live again.}

Anybody? Is there an answer to this problem??

Try with ForceWake=yes
Try DarkWake=1

For me DarkWake=1 gives me a KP but DarkWake=No (which is un-documented btw) works.

Try manually setting your PCI-E voltage through BIOS, 100 is the norm but check what voltage your cards take.

Thanks for posting, I tried both of the flags above, and nothing, the computer screens will still not come live, I know there has to be an answer out there or a work around.

Hey MacMod (MM),

You, just like me really want our sleep function to work. And since a lot of us have upgraded to 10.7.X it seems like I've seen sporadic issues with the sleep function. Now for my particular system I have a EVGA SR-2 Dual CPU system setup (that you can view here):

http://www.insanelym...howtopic=275740

Now I found a particular kext file that works to enable that function once again, but I decided not to use it as to not risk any start up issues or kernel panics. I've read a few reports of that happening in things going downhill from that point.

I say this because since we live in this new world of Hackintoshing, we need to realize that we can't have everything. Now I'm not saying that it's still not possible for you to be able to gain your sleep function once again, but that might possibly be the case. Quite honestly in my situation I usually have my system on for about 5 hours straight and then I usually shut it off for about an hour as I have to run errands and then come back to my office to work another 5 hours before finally done for the day. So in my case, it really doesn't matter as it doesn't do any harm to my machine keeping it on for the length of time that I do. Even if I have to shut it off, it doesn't take but about a minute for my system to start back up again anyway. So waiting 45 or 50 seconds more isn't going to hurt time off of what I'm doing... I know this may not be the answer you're looking for, but I hope this helps you to possibly find some closure if you can't find a solution to what you want...

BTW, can you show us some pics of your Awesome system? I'd really like to see it. You know, now that I'm thinking about it, there should really be a separate section that showcases our Mac Hak Pros and also have an InsanelyMac Ribbon Awards of some kind. I think the lot of our builds could and should be showcased for all to see !!! :thumbsup_anim: I look forward to seeing yours MM. Later... B)

PunkNugget,

I have pretty much come to the same conclusion that I will not get sleep working with this version of OS X. I swapped out another hard drive today installed a fresh version of Lion on it and tried tons of stuff to make sleep work. I poured over the forums for anything I thought might work and tried it. I changed and read up on all the bios commands to see if there was something that would get it working. I have spent too much time on this, I really want this feature to work so, I don't have to leave it on all day when not in use but that is just a small issue in the big picture of the Hackintosh world. Outside of that I am really happy with my Hack.

Here are some pictures of my current Hack, I took a G5 Mac Case and did a mod on it. I did this a while back, in fact, I sold the original board and Quad core that I had in it when I ran Snow Leopard and upgraded to a i5 2500K, I have 16 Gigs of ram in this machine. The upgrade difference after selling the Quad Core and Old board was around $140, not bad, you can't upgrade a 1 and a half year old real mac for 150 :thumbsup_anim:

I still hold out hope that there's an answer out there but it will have to come to me cause I can't find it as of now.

I see that you got 3 monitors. Is that only for working for the PC end of things or do have those 3 working for Mac OS X Lion 10.7 as well? BTW, Nice build... :)

PS - you ought to go on TonyMacX86.com and register and post your question on their forums as well...

Thanks, the only thing I wish, when I was doing my case, I did not destroy the power button case on the front inside, I found a guy in another thread that builds and sells the harnesses (for around 30 bucks) so that you can plug right into the Mac hook up and plug it right into your PC motherboard and everything works the front power button and usb connections, oh well, next time I will know better.

Your build is a real BEAST! I would love to have that much power in my hands, 1K for each processor is a little out of my budget but your system ROCKS!

I am registered at Tony Macs and I have posted there too. Not spent that much time with the post like in here though. I actually emailed Tony Mac for help, not sure I will here back he is supper busy I am sure. My guess he probably gets thousands of email a day.

Last, I found a guy that has the same board in another thread with everything working, I really think that the system profile needs to be edit for this graphics card so that it will link to it on the wake command. Little out of my reach right now.

I am only a Mac person, all three monitors work PERFECTLY with Lion. It's a ATI RADEON HD4850 x2 HD (Got it for 70 bucks on craigslist, good deal lol) there are four DVI connections on the card. I used ##### with ATI Inject then on the reboot I installed the ATI Patch for 10.7.2 and it works great.

Why not test out the kext with kextload?
If you have issues, just reboot and it's gone.

** Okay, I think I might have figured out why sleep is not working, theory, I am missing the code in terminal to tie to the HD and boot loader?? **

I have this same sleep problem with my other computer that has a Intel Board in it, so I don't think its the board.

When I installed Lion Originally, when it first came out, I was changing my install method as in the past I just used the Magic Installer and it did everything for me, all the terminal work, ect.. and everything just worked including sleep.

So when Lion came out I need another method so I started from scratch. I used Tony Macs, ##### Legacy to do a fresh install of Snow Leopard, did the updates ran the DSDT on the reboot. Got Snow Leopard working and updated to the latest version, then I installed Lion on the Snow Leopard Drive, rebooted and created a 12 gig installer partition. Following videos, by hand I did the OS X Lion Restore to the installer partition.

I then rebooted, on the reboot I changed to the Installer Partition and when Lion Installer came up I add another Partition for Lion. I installed lion and on the reboot I selected the Lion install. Ran mulitbeast on it to get all the stuff I needed working and have been using it just this on both my computers since Lion came out. When the boot loader comes up I just tab and switch to the 3rd Partition that has the Lion Install on it. Everything works great with this method but the sleep function.

So, I started thinking the other day. Since Tony Mac now has #####, what if i go ahead and set up my thumb drive with ##### and get a stand alone Lion Installer and Install Lion on a drive with no other drives hooked up and no other partitions, will this get the drive screens to wake up coming out of sleep?

After setting up ##### and installing Lion from the ##### thumb drive installer I made to a clean drive and only one hooked up to the computer, after going through the Apple walk through, I installed the stand alone Chimera and changed the computer bios to boot to the hard drive and I would get this error:

boot 0: GPT
boot 0: test
boot 0: test
boot 0: GPT
boot 0: test
boot 0: test
boot 0 error

Or, it was something really close to that error. I could boot the drive up by first loading the ##### Lion Installer I made and then switching to the drive with the lion install on it but If I tried to boot from the Lion Install that I installed the stand alone Chimera on I got the error message above.



*** So here is what I think, tell me if I am way off the mark **

I just assumed when I install the stand alone Chimera installer that this boot loader would just work on the restart, so far thats not the case,

first: Do I need to do terminal work to tie it to this boot loader and drive, meaning the drives ID?

second: It could be that when this computer comes out of sleep that since it is working from a partition and not the drive that it boots from on the initial boot up that could be why its not coming live again, (just a thought)

Anyway, how do I get the Stand Alone Chimera Boot loader working on the drive so I can test my theory and also have a thumb drive Lion Installer?

`All you need to do is install a boot loader to your lion partition. I would recommend Chameleon 2.1 r1819, available from here:
http://www.insanelym...howtopic=231075

Do you have NullCPUPowerManagement.kext installed?

I just did a clean install on the other hard drive using the ##### Lion Thumb Drive I made and once I installed it and went through the Apple Setup. I downloaded Chameleon 2.1 r1819 Installer from the thread above you mentioned, Installed it, so it was the ONLY thing I put on it to start rebooted and got the same error as with the Chimera Boot Loader. Do you know what this boot error is saying?


Loading Operating System

boot 0: GPT
boot 0: test
boot 0: test
boot 0: GPT
boot 0: test
boot 0: test
boot 0 error

Then it stops.

I guess others have had this same problem http://myhack.sojuga...c.php?f=5&t=193

*** UPDATE ONE LESS PROBLEM SOLVED, CLOSER TO THE SLEEP FIX ***

Well I thought by only having one hard drive installed, with a clean install of Lion from Tony Mac #####, and no partitions and the boot loader working from the installed drive that sleep would come online, unfortunately that did not happen however I did find a solution to a problem that many other people have. The solution is not mine, it was the hard work of mymac4music.com. I tired many solutions and this is the only one that worked and it was pretty easy to do.

If you get this error

boot 0: GPT
boot 0: test
boot 0: test
boot 0: GPT
boot 0: test
boot 0: test
boot 0 error

or something close to it on the boot up after installing Tony Macs Chimera or the boot loader Chameleon go to this website http://www.mymac4mus...10/boot0-error/ and follow this guys tutorial and it will fix the problem.

Here are screen shots of the tutorial, thanks MyMac4Music

Shenor,

Yea, I been following that thread for a while now, I actually post my specific problem on that thread. I think they are working on another sleep problem that people are having, i.e. when the computer wakes up from sleep it ejects the drives or something like that, I don't know for sure because my problem is that the screens will not come live again so I don't even get that far.

I am hoping that these edits they do somehow gets my sleep working, as soon as they post a modified DSDT file for my motherboard I will try it for sure, fingers crossed of course.

Well its been a while, still have not got sleep working with this motherboard. if i could get this working my system would be perfect. I was able to change the hybernate mode and boot up with sleep enabler just when it comes out of sleep the screen stays dark. Has anyone found a solution to make sleep work with this board?
