In Topic: Z68X-UD3H-B3 Sleep NOT working

02 October 2011 - 05:17 AM

Anyone ever get this working? tried with bios f8 and f9 dsdt's from tonymac library. As well as Kakewalk; alll tries with NO added kext's (besides what ##### installs with a user dsdt). Machine sleeps, and powers down. Hitting keyboard or power button wakes machine, spins fans up to full speed, starts drive access, and then locks up before video is displayed. The usb bus stays powered down and non responsive, and machine requires a hard power off and a reset. CMOS overflow happens and bios is wiped.

ga-z68x-ud3h-3b f8/f9 bios, ik 2500k (no over clocking), bios set with minimal necessary edits, gtx 280, 10.7.1 Lion

Thanks for any help. I have even tried with the sleepenabler kext that was needed with my ex58-ud5 and it makes no difference at all.

If you got it working, let me know, I'll try what you have tried.

Oh ya, the motherboard has a rev 1.0 and a rev 1.3, my mb is rev 1.0

What selection would you suggest be taken for the z68a-d3h-b3, I actually missed when ordering the z68x-ud3h-b3, which is too funny. I have been using kakewalk on my x58-ud5 since the first release, just always enjoyed the success that its given me.

I've tried to compare the z68 chipset against each other, and they seem to be pretty simular, in all actuality it seems that the amount of rear port usb ports and the addition or deletion of a onboard 1394a seem to be about it, they all use the same z68 sata controller, same usb3 controller, etc.

I suppose I could just start guessing, but thought I might ask since someone might have already done the work. I actually installed the ssd while externally mounted to my x58-ud5 and transfered it to my new z68a-d2h-b3 and it booted just fine, ethernet and sound didn't work, and it wouldnt wake from Sleep properly. so I grabbed ##### and installed the sound and ethernet that way and it all works, except when resuming from sleep when pressing the keyboard/mouse, the keystoke registers cause it awakens, but you have to disconnect and reconnect the usb keyboard/mouse to get it to work once it wake. all powered usb external hard drives also warn that they were disconnected improperly, so I know this isnt the correct solution, before playing around, I thought I would come ask which kakewalk board to choose, since its always all worked out of the box.

In Topic: Kakewalk: Minimal effort install (EP45, EX58, P55, G41)

I figured I would visit back and see if anyone else has experienced the same thing. I have a EX58-ud5, with a default clocked i7 920 in it. I have run kakewalk (as well as just about every flavor of install on this gigabyte board). I even posted a couple of months ago as I flirted with my issue. Keep in mind, that I had the system just as the first release of kakewalk came out, and it ran from 10.6.0 to 10.6.3 without a crash at all, no matter what I pushed it just chugged along. The system has OZ 12800 memory in it (12 gigs) along with a 240 gig SSD and a few other sata drives. As soon as I updated to 10.6.4, the system became unstable and I played around with it, rebuilding it via kakewalk, #####, digital dreamers scripts) and after about 2 weeks and tweaking everything and all, I got it to stay stable for a couple of days, but If I ran a couple of virtual machines and say a resource hog like photoshop, 100% of the time it would crash. Fast forward 6 months and I finally lost some work due to a kernel panic, so I got frustrated and thought, why dont I pull 6 gigs of memory. That was a month ago, with uptime over 720 hours now. I've tried pulling dimms and rotating them through trying to find a bad dimm, none are bad, windows 7 on the box doesn't crash and memtest tests clean, its just running osx and the 6 dimms, and it crashes, take 3 out and it works. If I had larger dimms, I would try to see if its actually the # of dimms or the amount of memory. Although up intel 10.6.4 I ran 12 with no issues, I wonder if its a faulty dimm slot? as its not the memory.

Im running just fine on 6gb, but I cant fire up two virtual machines and use osx at the same time anymore, just thought I would ask if anyone else experienced this?

Thanks in advance.

DD did a better job of describing it for you, obviously he has more experience explaning how:to's.

Just so you know, the pmVersion= is specific for the update you are at, ie: pmVersion=0 disables it.
pmVersion=20 was for 10.6.4
pmVersion=19 was for 10.6.3
21 happens to be for both 10.6.5 and 10.6.6 however.. :)

you can use DD's script to edit your boot plist, or a text editor, or ever easier, go and download the property list editor from apple, I know the text editor is faster, but I use the gui from apples dev site.


Thanks for the reply. I'm still confused - seemed a lot simpler previously for some reason.

Contents of com.appl.boot.plist
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com...yList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>arch=i386 -v</string>

Do I just add the pmversion = 21 to this?
I think I understand now about the script folder kext being replaced - the one I have downloaded now seems to have the updated kext already there - in which case just running the script should sort it all out - yes?
Appreciate the help - took a hiatus from hackintoshing and now floundering once again.

You'll need to change the pmVersion=X in boot plist to pmVersion=21; also from the hackintosh script folder, you need to replace the sneepenabler.kext in the "Kexts_10.6/Misc_Patches" with the 10.6.5/10.6.6 version, then rerun the script and re-do the kext install/cache steps.

Check the first page for the link to the new SleepEnabler.kext, pretty simply actually.

Could do with a bit of help.
I'm running 10.6.2 which works very well.
Had an issue with sleepenabler when updating to 6.2 from the previous - didnt remove it prior to updating.
Managed to fix it but that was pretty involved and I don't fancy doing it all again.

I need to update to 10.6.6 so I can use the magic trackpad and have a gander at the App store - but I'm being very cautious about doing so.
My question is (cos I can't remember how I did it previously) - where do I locate the sleepenabler kext so I can remove it prior to updating?
Or is there another way?
