well, strangest things are happening here...
I read on this forum (
Reading further more on different topics there, I found an article that mentioned the following: DSDT patching will not always work, patching the driver will work, because since 10.7 Apple programmed a "feature" into the driver. The feature is: the brightness is controlled in 16 steps from 0 to 100%. On regular boot the system uses only 12 of the 16 steps. The last 4 steps are available AFTER sleep.
Strange, but true.
Some guys got around this "feature" by sending the display right at startup&login to sleep, using a little Prog called "Sleepdisplay" from github by Kim Hunter.
I wanted to try it out myself and updated the system before this (chameleon und HWsensors). I disabled all modues of chameleon with Chameleon Wizard for testing purposes (like ACPI and Kernelpatcher), because I wanted to see if I really needed them.
After Restart: the system started up with 100% brightness like after sleep.
Since I am using "Brightness Slider" (from App Store, Freeware) as a little program in the menu bar that holds and resets the brightness to my level, the display now has & holds the brightness setting I want.
To make the long story short: Display brightness on my machine now seems to be fixed by simply deactivating chameleon modules. This is what i meant ;-)
I hope someone can reproduce and verify this...
Edit: I might add, that I added (just for fun my SSDT-1, compiled with MaciASL that also can extract it). I was amazed that Chameleon really loads it at boot time. In this SSDT are the Acer values for the Sensors and Powermanagement for the external components of the system. This might have also something to do with the brightness that is now available.
i have one question.. my osx 10.8.4 freezes after transfering data in a size about 4-5 gb. it does not matter if i make a install or download .. sometimes it freezes after one hour and i can not move mouse or anything, it's just Frozen.. does anyone have a similar problem like this ? does anyone have a awnser for this problem ? I hav Acer aspire V3 771g with i5Cpu and Geforce 710m
Also wanted to ask is there a possibility to get boost to 3.2GHz ?
Thanks in advice..
having a few internal and external HDD here, I can say the following: No, I haven't any probs copying large files from one disk to another or for different systems (Win/Linux/OSX) to another. Also the download (like torrent files of 4-8 GB) are going fine... even after a few hours. I might mention, that I do not sent the HDD to sleep, because I am using some SDD's which do not need this feature.
for the Speedstepping: Like iClock said, I am also reaching here "only" 3,069 Ghz which represents the maximum that the system supports by SSDT...
