Alright in terms of FN keys, just get a new voodooPS2 kext, theres one out there that supports remapping

Super_LoP  Do you get these in your verbose boot too? Maybe on to something 

ACPIBacklightPanel: ACPI Methods _DOS _BCL _BCM _BQC found. Device path: (Ill fill in after, camera cut it off)
ACPIBacklightPanel: getIndexForLevel(50) not found in _BCL table ! 
ACPIBacklightPanel: Error in queryACPICurentBrightnessLevel _BQC
ACPIBacklightPanel: getIndexForLevel(16) not found in _BCL table !
ACPIBacklightPanel: Version 1.2

I have a feeling this is blocking the full potential of the patch (Brightness on wake)

For Wake problems you can check chameleon options (USB FIX) works for me.... 

 

 

For FN KEYS i use SPARK... a little app that allows you to config your fn keys

Which one? I got one who support multitouch, and I don't really want to change...  :rolleyes:

l got it :

ACPIBacklightPanel: ACPI Methods _DOS _BCL _BCM _BQC found. Device path: PNLF
ACPIBacklightPanel: Version 1.2

Maybe it is the right code for me?

No, doesn't work, I can wake, but on wakeup I can't write anything and it look like the screen freeze, except for the mouse cursor.

IT WORKS! Even with the sun! Thanks you, thanks you, thanks you!  :D

I was looking for an app like that since the beggining of my Hackintosh adventure...

But it as trouble.

1 ) Cannot use it on boot sequence. (I know it is possible only with a good DSDT hack.)

2 ) Cannot use FN Keys directly. (Use Windows Keys)

3 ) When I go up +7 at luminosity, it doesn't change and stay to maximum. I will try to fix it on DSDT. 

4 ) It doesn't update brightness value in Prefs.

 

EDIT :

Conman997 sent me a message, with a proposition of fix for Keys and Wake up.

[...] following the guide with the exception of putting "lcd1234" part under DD03. The one you sentme has it under DD02. If your wondering why its because DD03 has the _BCM _BCL _BQC Values in it.

Here you are.

For me, it didn't change anything. Btw, got always "Unknown Screen" in Display Pref. What about you?

Super_LoP could you tell me what program you use to make dsdt's? I feel bad having to ask you to compile mine every time :P every time i do it with dsdt editor ill get stubborn errors that wont go away.

And what bootloader are you using? Ive heard Clover will fix your iMessage problem.

I use DSDT Editor. No problem to ask me, we try together to solve this problem ^_^

New DSDT didn't work ?

I use the latest Chameleon.

In fact, iMessage work, but not with my iCloud account. It's a problem that original Mac users can have.

It's write to call Apple Care for check acount, not the problem in video.

It's strange because I can use in my iPod...

Thanks but we shouldn't talk about it there, not a thread about iMessage. :)

Right you are and nope, no prevail with it. Rehabman's helping me on another form and wanted me to try this but Im talentless with dsdt's i tried myself and got strings of text telling me incorrect values. Heres a link http://www.tonymacx8...html#post645487

Your values make different text appear but i believe its an improvement

Can you look at that link and make the necessary adjustments?

 

the PNLF :

Method (_BCL, 0, NotSerialized) { Return (\_SB.PCI0.GFX0.DD03._BCL()) }
Method (_BCM, 1, NotSerialized) { \_SB.PCI0.GFX0.DD03._BCM(Arg0) }
Method (_BQC, 0, NotSerialized) { Return (\_SB.PCI0.GFX0.DD03._BQC()) }
Method (_DOS, 1, NotSerialized) { \_SB.PCI0.GFX0._DOS (Arg0) }

 

and WAK 

Method (_WAK, 1, Serialized)
{
\_SB.PCI0.GFX0.DD03._BCM(50) // set to 50% brightness


Store (Zero, P80D)
If (LOr (LEqual (Arg0, 0x03), LEqual (Arg0, 0x04)))
{
If (LEqual (PMEE, One))
...
}

I'm not enough skill :(

Please open your DSDT.aml on /Extra directory with DSDT Editor and test. Mine you downloaded has no error to compile.

A quick question - just thinking about source of my issues:

Does OSX partition have to be marked as bootable for hibernate/sleep to work properly?

As you know, for instance in Windows on an MBR BIOS computer (which I am), if a partition other than Windows partition is active (i.e. bootable), hibernate/sleep won't work! Is it same with OSX?

Thank you for the info. Finally I run with myPoint Shade because of eye-care and shade assistant. The assistant turns off the shade automatically when I switched to VLC and returns shade back when I return to DB tasks.

I'm very happy that my post help someone!!!  :)

Will this also work for Nvidia discrete graphics? I was able to get the slider thingy on my display panel following this method but it's unresponsive.

It's only for 8086:0046 aka Intel HD Graphics 1st Generation.

 

EDIT : I found a thing about my brightness keys. Without SPARK (app), when I push "Pause,ATTN" (on French keyboard), it Brightness on up. Maybe I should check about the layout or Voodoo PS2?

So I followed all the instructions given, but, my issue isnt solved. ._. The brightness works, yes, but it isnt bright. I just need the PNLF device and it'll suddenly get me a slider and such - not even need a kext. But its not bright. When my screen sleeps and gets back on, its as bright as it should be. What do I need to fix? :/ it's frustrating...especially because my DSDT now feels 2x as long as its original dump was. o-o
