@macq, First and foremost, I'm not sure I'm supposed to do *this*

F2+F4 at Clover Boot screen will dump various aml files to Clover/ACPI/origin

Then in config.plist add them in sequence.

Sometimes you will get duplicate SSDTs. A clue is if two file sizes are the same.

 

BUT, once again, I don't think one is supposed to do this, while I dare say, my laptop is running much faster than it did before and also boots faster. For instance, previously after login, it took a while for all my tray app icons to load. Now it is instantaneous.

 

Needless to say, my quest is to try and solve my power issues causing instant wake. I know EHC2 is the culprit probably the WebCam preventing the sleep. Either I fix it or maybe figure out how to write script to disable it and enable it, so I can leave it disabled, get my sleep, and enable at will only when I need.

First, you should not take any SSDTs which have names with a letter following a number. So I only needed to take ONE of them.

Second, just look at config.plist docs. There is a place in bottom right in the UI below where you specify DSDT where you can add your SSDTs.

So if I have ssdt like SSDT-1x.aml to 4x and SSDT-0, I leave all the x ones and put yne 0 one in gui cloverconfigurator by drag and drop.

Is that it?

@macq

I just go to finder, click on the ssdt pretending to rename it, then copy to  clipboard

Then go to clover configurator, hit +, then paste and type ".aml".

Can't get any simpler than that.

 

And oh by the way, don't take any SSDTs which have a letter after the number before ".aml". They don't help but I don't know if they hurt

Sorry to wake up this thread. I have same CPU and therefore unsupported by Piker.

So I have copied all 5 SSDTs generated using Clover into patched folder and then added them in the list in config.plist

I'm using MPB6.2

 

I've seen my CPU x multiplier in HWMonitor all over the place. From 7 to 15. So I think turbo working fine. I also see perceptible performance increase especially as soon as I login, screen renders much faster with tray icons.

 

My real issue is instant wake on sleep. Since the original poster here seems to have had the same issue, was wondering if he solved it.

 

 

Hi Griftopia,

 

It is a Great news, that you got Power Management in your build !

 

Could you please send us your complete Clover folder (Compressed) , so we can take a look.

 

Thanks a lot for your help.
