In Topic: 775i945GZ Sleep Works But Odd Behavior, Long Wake

21 October 2012 - 09:15 PM


• Retail Mountain Lion 10.8.2
• ASRock 775i945GZ
• Intel Core 2 Duo E4700
• Sapphire AMD HD 5750 1Gb
• 4 GB Ram


• Added SBUS device


• Audio - ALC888 with DSDT patch & patched AppleHDA.kext
• Video - Full QE/CI/Resolution by adding device id to ATI5000Controller.kext & AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext and DSDT patch (for 10.8.2 had to roll back to 10.8.0 ATI5000Controller.kext)
• Ethernet - Added AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext to IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/ and DSDT patch for built-in

Kinda Working:

• Sleep - Sleep works, but the fans remain running for about 30 seconds and then turn off (system is asleep). When system wakes (by keyboard key or mouse click) it takes about 5 to 10 minutes for the monitor to wake up and for the USB devices to get power (USB device used to wake has power, others don't). Sometimes sleeping the system a second time does not work and results in black screen with fans still running. Additionally, I have to patch AppleRTC.kext to prevent a CMOS reset when waking from sleep.

I have attached my DSDT.

Anyone able to help me figure out what is wrong with sleep on this machine

Totally off-topic but how did you manage to install 10.8? Did you make a dvd or did you boot from usb? I have a similar system her from a friend of mine but it wont boot from usb. Hope you dont mind i took your dsdt to try this machine? What is your bios version?

which kext ?

I dont know exactly wich one because i tried to many kexts in the last couple of days :) But at last some good news, I fixed my usb install drive and i reinstalled. With only fake smc and my mobo's dsdt it already booted fine! I had a problem with speedstepping but when i changed my smbios it started to work fine.
I only had to install kexts for my atheros gigabit card and sound (patched applehda) and ofcourse for the sata controllers. The problem with the orange icons/external drive indication in about my mac are gone too.
And the network problems had nothing to do with the card but with the powerline adapters i used. But i found an old 54g pci card that is recognised as airport without any drivers so i'm good for now.

right click the kext, choose show package contents.
you should be able to find the plist file. :)

I know that, only when i open original kexts that came with the os i can't find that file. With the ones i placed or replaced myself i can find it

Well, I can follow you quite well.
But i think it's better to quote other's post so that others know you replied.

It doesn't matter whether it's a vanilla kext or hardware.
Even your hardware wasn't vanilla Apple hardware, as long as the original kext can make it work, that's fine.
Even you have to install third-party kexts to make them work, it's still ok.

Will do from now on :)

I still don't understand how apple drivers (kexts) work exactly. Do they have separate kexts for different hardware or is it some sort of universal driver who supports different hardware?

And can you tell me why i can find the info.plist in so many custom kexts so i can change the dev id and in vanilla kexts i cant find any info.plist. or am i looking in the wrong place?

Thanks in advance!

After a lot of slowdowns lastnight (spinning beach balls all over) that seems to got something to do with powermanagement I decided to re install nullcpupowermanagement.kext because of good experiences with overall system speed and responsiveness.

And now it's a lot faster at boot and my network speed is back to where it should be! Only thing is that i've broken the sleep function with it... I dont know for sure if it just stops cpu powermanagement or for the whole system. So when I get my new wireless card next thursday i wil try to revert it.

I couldnt find any other drivers for my network card for 10.8 last time but i'll take a look when i'm back from work. Did u mean a vanilla driver or a real apple network card? Sorry i'm still quite fresh in the whole hackintosh world and my english isnt all that good :)
