With Clover, Wake from sleep in Mountain Lion is kind of random for me. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it doesn't and just gives me a black screen.
I get best results by disabling XHCI

Is there any way do diagnose this ? (I'm using 10.8.3)

Funny thing is that with Lion is always works, it never failed.

With Chameleon, wake from sleep works fine in Mountain Lion and Lion also.

With legacy Clover boot sleep/wake works also on ML and Lion.
The problem only with UEFI boot into ML.

So, are you guys close to a fix or it´s one of those weird to understand thing ?

I'm not following this.

What do you mean by UEFI boot??

My mobo doesn't have UEFI, just a regular BIOS. And clover boots fine. I managed to work boot into legacy Windows 8, too.

My computer doesn't wake from sleep and when I restart it, the BIOS settings are messed up and I have to configure it all over again.

Cheers!

EDIT:

Sleep actually is not an issue for me because I never let my PC sleep because I'm always doing something (downloading, etc). The only thing that bothers me right now it to set a custom RAM speed. Can somebody help me with that?? My system is overclocked an it detects only the stock speed even if the boot.log says different.

Edit: I made some progress. One of the reasons why I had white screen is because I had PatchVBios to Yes. Another unexpected reason was because I set the ProductName to be Macmini5,3 in the SMBIOS section!

I was able to make it boot with the Mac12,2 definition found @ http://www.tonymacx8...t-work-56.html. I was able to get iMessage to sign in, but when I rebooted using Chimera with my usual Macmini5,3, I got logged out of iMessage. Either I have to make the Macmini definition work or I'll have to use iMac from now on. I'm reluctant to use iMac as Macmini definition has more stepping for my 2600k. I'm looking around for more information on making it work with Clover..

What the main port does you use?
And How many ports you have? 5 or 6.
You shoul use Berlushes FB. For 6 ports
Don't use it. It just for you to more easier search at hex edit.

Hi, slice
How do you feel about this to make clover more better? More exactly,
The real mac have sound when this one is swithing on. And it come from EFI.
All you need is to write a sound's EFI driver.
How do you look at my offer? It would really better make the clover.
And then it will be visible difference versus Chameleon.

If you're using a motherboard with UEFI, probably you can set a custom boot picture and sometimes a custom boot sound.

I'm more interested in changing the name of the partitions you can select to boot. Like in chameleon. Also, how to set a custom RAM speed because it's detecting my RAM at stock speed but I have them overclocked.

Another thing that annoys me is that my mouse (Cyborg R.A.T. 5) doesn't work properly. It can even move to the left. Maybe it's because it's made differently and even on OSX I need its drivers to work fine. It has high DPI.

Cheers!

Wait!
Clover is a real EFI. Only one difference is that Clover boots to Random Access Memory. And real EFi installed onto Read-Only Memory,
So that, it's teorically possible. Need sound-driver.
At Chamellion this thing looks more difficultly as Chamellion have just shown the system that EFI had worked yet. And do it super a lot sucsesfully.
So that, Slice we demand and ask start up sounds at Clover

No, we don't demand anything, you can ask nicely though. Besides startup sound is the least important feature I could think of.

Of couse you right, in this case demand means not require. It was need to add some colors for my phrase.
In my case, Clover did all that I wanted. And now I want Clover to work more perfectly.

The thing is that audio feedback adds nothing here. If it's just to emulate the Mac chime, then it's not really necessary but mere eye (ear?) candy. Perhaps someone may create a driver on his/her own but let the Clover team concentrate on important bugs and features for now.

+1.

In my case I want to customize the name of the partitions like in Chameleon and also tweak the RAM speed, and INMHO that's easier than develop a sound driver.

Cheers!

Of cause your right again. I just make an offer. Do cosmetic features. But I think clover have seriously problems for me and some people.
For instance, for me clover not quite works well.
Because, I certainly must put my hard disk to the other place. Because my laptop have two hard disk. Otherwise, I get a blue screen.
Moreover, in this case, my lagacy-boot don't work.
In my clase, clover works well when this one is installed at USB flash drive.
In other words, if I want fully use Clover, I have got to do it with USB flash drive.
And this problem with Hard disks and legacy boot are super very difficult to correct. Even for slice.
And so I'm using chamelion now. I have been herritaging between Clover and Chamelion.
Beacause I don't see obvious of advantages Clover over chamelion.
With Chamelion my computer works as well as with Clover. Exceptions is Boot camp.

Agree - would love to be able to tweak RAM speed. My RAM is identified as 1066 by Clover but clocked to 1600 in BIOS.

Mine is detected at 1333MHz and set at 1690MHz in BIOS and works at that speed in windows. In OSX I think it's working at 1333 because Geekbench says so.

That is just a cosmetic issue as I'm (almost) sure a bootloader cannot change RAM speed at will.

I agree, but Ermac said in the instructions that Geekbench reads the real CPU frequency so I assume it also applies to RAM.

That's why I want to tweak that.

The instructions thread should be updated for the Nvidia VBios patching available in ProjectOSX. That way I added the 1920x1080 VESA mode not available in my VBIOS without patching it. Clover looks A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Cheers!

I was also surprised to see my full resolution (1080p) working at boot. Really awesome guys!
