maybe it has something to do with the battery manager. If you remove the battery manager I noticed better stability with suspend / resume operations. I'm interested in the result!


Rock solid stability after removing the battery manager. No hangups when resuming! Downside is i can't see the battery level anymore.

Any advice with choppy mouse? It's not working with 3 finger gestures either, only 2. What kext provides this function?

After trying to reinstall VoodooPS2 in order to try to get the mouse functioning with 3 finger gestures I've now lost all mousepad activity. Reinstalled the kext using kexthelper here are the privileges on the kexts.

drwxr-xr-x@ 3 root wheel 102 Apr 17 11:25 VoodooPS2Controller.kext

It should be working....

Touchpad will only work when nub (orange clitoris) is disconnected from the systemboad.

Hello, i´m planning to change my Dell Precision M4500 by Hp 8560w with DreamColor Display. Lion works fine on my Dell but shutdown and multitouch.

I need to know some questions about Lion on 8560w before buying it.

- Does the Brightness control worked fine? (i had a 8540w and i can´t control the brightness screen, i think it was a light sensor issue)

- Does the shutdown worked 100%?

- Any other things i must worry about?

Thanks and sorry for my english.

also was having the same issue reported trying to download from usenet, tried different clients and usenet providers. Would someone mind ziping or raring the kexts and uploading them? I wish I could just download this from a torrent. Anyone tried this with mountion lion? Thanks!!

Anyone? please i need help with this sleep issue. I understand it is probably due to the nullpowermanagement kext but if i remove i wont be able to boot into osx anymore... Can someone explain the steps for me?

Hello, i am still unix fan, but I want to try MAC on my notebook HP Elitebook 8560w LY524EA#BCM

 

I have 2 questions.

1/ how long does a battery last on a MAC OS X Mavericks 10.9 ?

2  Can I use DSDT from Ubuntu 13.04 and transfer this DSDT to MAC? Why I am asking, becouse with Ubuntu works all the hardware in my laptop. Is that posible?

Altough this guide is now very much outdated, some things are still of interest.

You mention the touchpad only works after removing the "orange clitoris". Why is this and are you sure about this?

The DSDT.aml of the first post only works if you have the exact same spec with NVidia graphics. Correct? (I have AMD).

The best way to install now is to use Clover EFI. It works amazing, just a bit more work to setup correctly.

There are a few things which still need work (using Clover EFI)

 

- Touchpad doesn't work 100% with the driver I have, no pinch to zoom or 3+ finger gestures (the one posted here doesn't work for me, hence the question.)

- I think CPU and Graphics power management doesn't work. I haven't touched DSDT / SSDT so I assume I would have to patch this

- No Wi-Fi obviously. Working on it, but there are a number of viable solutions out there

- SDHC reader doesn't work I believe

- USB 3.0 seems a bit hit and miss to connect, but does work well

- Volume control keys don't change the volume. This is due to VoodooHDA and can be fixed with a config edit.

- Probably something else I can't think of right now

 

Everything else (including M5950 / 6770m graphics) works really well!

Use HP Probook Installer Clover Edition, it's supposed to support this model.
