ASUS P5Q almost perfect... I think? DVD and USB Help

03 July 2012 - 05:22 AM

Hey guys!

I had some oldish hardware lying around and have installed 10.7.4 Lion through the myHack USB installer. It was pretty painless. I then attempted to make some things work - ethernet, sound, etc. All fine with the right kexts. It was then that I'd discovered DSDT editing, and got quite excited.

I was hoping that It'd fix some of my problems, and I'm pretty sure it did - I got the DSDT editor, downloaded some patches and applied them. BOOM! Sleep started working when I pressed the Sleep button. Not only that, but it would *wake up* from sleep at the press of a mouse button. Sound was fine, video was fine, using the built in eSATA ports was fine, USB was fine...

There are only 2.1 issues left.

1. When I power the machine off, the light on my USB keyboard is still on. This light is *not* on when I send the computer to sleep manually.

2. The DVD drive I had in there originally (an ASUS DRW 2014l1t) would behave strangely most of the time - pressing the eject button would fling the tray open at a great speed, and then refuse to close.

... and the .1 of an issue, is that I'm not entirely sure which patches I've applied anymore, and which ones I should still apply - I'm not entirely sure how pimped my DSDT is.

Accompanying this is a question - does anyone think that I can get my DVD drive to not be such a {censored} with an edited DSDT? Is there a way to get the USB keyboard and mouse lights to switch off once I shutdown the computer?

Also, I'm reasonably confident that I've enabled the right C and P states for my CPU to step - but how do I tell If it does?

Cheers for any input at all guys! I'll chuck in some files on request...

Board: ASUS P5Q
CPU Intel E7300
Lion 10.7.4
