Whenever I have trouble with unintended resume from suspend, I first look at /var/log/system.log for clues, as the wake reason is reported there.
Sometimes the wake reason doesn't make sense, but often it tells you that it's a USB event and then you can start tearing down your USB usage to isolate what is going wrong.
Otherwise it's typically a misbehaving kext, and rolling back your tweaked kexts is a good way to narrow it down.
As far as I know, hibernation on hackintoshes has been broken since 10.7, as nobody has bothered to replicate the genuine mac encryption.

I'am using a replacement, bought for 35 Euros - it is ok for 2,5 h.

Thanks, that's not too much $$, but less than 1/2 what the smaller 6 cell battery is supposed to provide, so not very good capacity. You can watch maybe 45 minutes of video before the battery is dead with that capacity, I think.

Problem Solved : USB WakeUp was enabled in BIOS 

i never think the USB WakeUp will power on my computer after 1 second of suspend

I have a question about installation on Dell XPS 1340.  I installed Mavericks restore on a USB stick, was able to install on my new HDD drive via USB connection.  I reboot from my new installed Mac OS X Mavericks Hard drive using -v, all seems ok until the very end, where it goes into black screen and thats that.  After going back into windows 7 and running my MAC OS X Mavericks in the virtual box environement, I noticed that where my computer is going black is right where the OS x interface should be loading up.


I can boot the Mac OS under windows virtual box, but not as a clean install from a Hard drive.  I did try installing hd direct to laptop sata and does the same thing, so I know its not a USB driver halting my drive.  I have read a lot about DSDT files, fakesmc, smbios.plist and other files you have listed on your forum.


My question as a newbie non techie type, who really wants to get this mavericks working on my Dell, is do I need these files on the USB for install.  I can access the installed Mac OS installed on my new USB drive through Hackintosh vie windows VirtualBox, do I need to add files to folders on the installed drive Im trying to boot from for it to work.  I have read your article quit a few times and its a little technical for me and I really want this to work.


Can you give me a more basic set of instruction to follow.  I have managed a successful install on this drive, just cant get it too competely boot to the interface, Im sure Im missing something.  Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.


P.S.  The screens I have posted are the last before it goes to black and i have to reboot.  I have also listed some info about by Dell Studio XPS 1340


Many Thanks Anthony
