Ellnic, up coming apple's nvidia kext's only need OpenCL patch. No need to replace it with nvidia kext's. Sleep/wake/backlit is working.

I'm looking forward to that then :D Hopefully i'll see my backlit keyboard working in ML

Out of interest, what does the display override that you have attached, do? I have daf in my folder, just wondering what yours does?

No me neither... I guess that one is a no go for now. The keys do not work either - At least the volume keys work :D

what's your hibernatemode? Type in console: pmset -g | grep hibernatemode

I just tested it on hibernate mode 3/default for laptops and it's working here. Let the battery die and plug in charger and power backup where i had left off when lost power.

Mine is mode 3 which is traditional sleep. I believe either 1 or 0 is what the windows world would refer to as Hibernation, which would probably use that sleep image.

I don't think you will get sleep on low battery though, I have never had this working on any of my Hacks... let me know if you get it working.. it's not great running for the power supply when the battery warning comes up to save my seagates from crashing :P

By the way, if anyone has a 4K drive, or is thinking of upgrading to one (750GB for example), you will need to follow these instructions in order to boot using chameleon: http://www.macbreake...oot0-error.html
My machine came with 2 x 750GB drives and I needed this to get it working. The boot1h file does not need to be replaced unless you reformat. Be careful with the dd command and make sure you definitely have the correct identifier or you may lose some data.

EDIT: Also, those of you who work with Windows environments a lot may want to check this out: http://www.avira.com...ee-mac-security
I think LatinMcG has recommended this in the past, I use the Windows version where I have to, and so far the Mac version seems good. I have been laughed at in the past for having Mac AV, but the truth is, it really only catches stuff I could pass on to people I work with who use Windows. Avira always recieves top marks in av-comparatives.org.

hibernatemode = 0 (binary 0000) by default on supported desktops. The system will not back memory up to
persistent storage. The system must wake from the contents of memory; the system will lose context on
power loss. This is, historically, plain old sleep.

hibernatemode = 3 (binary 0011) by default on supported portables. The system will store a copy of mem-
ory to persistent storage (the disk), and will power memory during sleep. The system will wake from
memory, unless a power loss forces it to restore from disk image.

hibernatemode = 25 (binary 0001 1001) is only settable via pmset. The system will store a copy of mem-
ory to persistent storage (the disk), and will remove power to memory. The system will restore from
disk image. If you want "hibernation" - slower sleeps, slower wakes, and better battery life, you
should use this setting.

I guess I should set it to 0 then, I do not use Hibernate.

I been on mode 0, due to small size SSD. It will take up all 8 gigs of image size (Ram). After you change it make sure you delete image.


sudo rm /private/var/vm/sleepimage

you can even change different states like change hibernate mode to 3 for battery while keeping hibernate mode to 0 for charger.

Just change pmset -c(charger) -b(battery) -u(UPS) -a(all)

ex. sudo pmset -c hibernatemode 0
ex. sudo pmset -b hibernatemode 3

Our System is pretty close, but you should be using your own dsdt. I had upload my dsdt in the package for anyone to diffmerge differences/fixes. For me to get backlit keyboard, I had to install Nvidia updated kexts http://www.nvidia.co...f02-driver.html, or install OS X ML 10.8.2 Supplemental Update 2.0 (keep Apple Nvida kext's) http://support.apple...b/DL1611.��Make sure you use OpenCL patch. I am currently using smbios 9,1.


Are you refering to your LCD backlight being dim? At chameleon boot hold down FN + F6.
Or if you are refering to backlit keyboard, it works after installing nvidia kexts. Put it to sleep and wake for keyboard backlit.

I just realized, I have been uploading the wrong DSDT.aml. Will include it in the next package.

I've just been using yours because my DSDT skills suck big time. I extracted a fresh copy of my DSDT using AIDA64 under windows, and applied the Olarila patch for the G73SW, but haven't you made additional changes to your DSDT?

EDIT: Btw, removed sleep image, thx for info :)
