In Topic: PowerManagement bundle (with ACPI) for Leopard

10 March 2008 - 12:16 AM

Hi All - I have been fiddling with power management, laptop overheating and battery for a while on laptop hp pavilion dv1659us - a Centrino Core model with 945GM graphics etc: I am running 10.5.2 now and have put this kext together using hints from macgirl and around the forums. I have set fn=3 in my com.apple.Boot.plist - it seems to help, but not sure. the only thing I have done is removed stuff that kills my fans and set all the versions to be compatible.

it cures my overheating laptop : I use the Kalyway 10.5.2 kernel ( Darwin 9.2.0) which gives me sleep and wake and shutdown
I delete AppleFan.kext and AppleACPIThermal.kext and AppleCPUThermal - some of which appear in other Kexts - particularly inside old versions of AppleACPIPlatform.kext

I have uploaded my package of AppleACPIPlatform.kext here
It contains the following kexts, all setup for 10.5.2 (i.e. 1.2.1 as AppleACPIPlatform.kext)
ACPIPS2Nub.kext (otherwise the mouse disappears and keyboard)
AppleACPIButtons.kext (for power on off)
AppleACPIEC.kext (vanilla)
AppleACPIPCI.kext (vanilla)
AppleACPIPowerSource.kext (from Iatkos with the version updated per Macgirl)
Attached File  AppleACPIPlatform.zip   260.67KB   334 downloads
If you install this with kext helper on a 10.5.2 system after installing the power management bundle, it gives you the battery icon - the only thing i don't get is the time calculation - it just runs calculating the whole time. It seems to work on vanilla or on the std Kalyway 10.5.2 kernel. I get sleep/wake and shutdown - but don't get speedstep - with speedstep I lose sleep.
Key thing about this is it turns my fans on (or at least leaves it to the BIOS I believe) - otherwise I get terrible overheating.

I use Broadcom card 4312 which I installed to replace my 3945 pci-e card - after wake it does not connect automatically, but there are loads of threads about how to do this

As usual save a copy of your old version.

Good luck http://forum.insanel...icons/icon1.gif

Hi there
Saw your post re Realtek Lan driver - Have you tried a clean install, ticking no boxes (not vanilla and not SSE2) (welcome to the world of OSX) and just installing the network driver before any mouse drivers etc. I am unclear as to whether you have installed 8139 driver and kexts or the 8100 driver and kexts - they are different on the forum Genius bar.

If its of interest my HP DV1659us works under 10.5.2 as follows
Core 2 Centrino Duo - works
Sleep and wake and shutdown(Full sleep, no lights, just odd flash on button) - using power management bundle and Iatkos 1.05 ACPIplatform)
Full QE/CI
Trackpad (but not tapping slide/scroll)
Wireless (swapped out 3945 for HPs Broadcomm equivalent) and added in Airport Extreme Update to get it to work - perfect
Fans cut in and out correctly. but not proper power management in the Speedstep sense- so battery life about an hour.
Sound works (but only output).
No PCMCIA or Card Reader. - But I don't use them
DVD R/W works
Ilife etc - all works when updated from Software Update
I was wondering if there was a better setup, but haven't seen one (apart from a Macbook Pro). They all have flaws so far.

please tell me if u have any sucess with this thank u

This is BRILLIANT. I have a dv1659us with kalyway 10.5.1, upgraded to 10.5.2. It has Centrino Core Duo and Intel 82945GM Graphics. Vanilla kernel, EFI with MBR, running alongside XP in the first partition OSX86 in the second. Wireless works using a HP Broadcom mini PCI-E with the Airport Extreme Update kexts loaded, not frameworks. Card Reader does not work. Nor does Ricoh Integrated Webcam

Sleep did not work after 10.5.2 and I downloaded the two kexts above, then used kexthelper b7 (in the Kalyway release) to install them and then rebooted. Works perfectly. My sleep button now says 'Restart Sleep Cancel Shutdown' and I can restart from sleep. Works on Battery and AC. BUT I have to reconnect to Airport after Sleep.

Any ideas on - Auto reconnect of Airport (I know this is really pushing the borders, as I don't know how a normal Mac behaves on this).
I have not done pmset commands as it does not seem to need them: my pmset -g looks like this
AC Power -1*
Currently in use:
sleep 10
displaysleep 10
autorestart 0
hibernatefile /var/vm/sleepimage
powerbutton 1
hibernatemode 3
womp 1
disksleep 10
ttyskeepawake 1

Its the same whether the power is on or not - so I don't have Battery Meters etc, which I would like to learn how to fix - another topic I know. Any thoughts on the pmset?
