#2081245 Wake reason: RTC (Alarm) - how to deactivate?

Posted by tseug on 04 November 2014 - 08:09 PM

Other than checking the log for wake events is there a way to check discoveryd was disabled and re-enabled? Well, you obviously can't check if discoveryd is unloaded during sleep directly, but you can check that it is loaded (the sudo is very important here so make sure to remember it): sudo launchctl list | grep com.apple.networking.discoveryd This should return something. Otherwise discoveryd is not loaded. Another thing you can try before adding /Library/LaunchDaemons/de.bernhard-baehr.sleepwatcher.plist is to check and see if your rc scripts work. I.e /usr/local/sbin/sleepwatcher -V -s /etc/rc.sleep in a terminal and then try to sleep or/usr/local/sbin/sleepwatcher -V -s /etc/rc.sleep -w /etc/rc.wakeup and then try to sleep In both these cases the terminal window will not report anything until you actually wake up from sleep again, and you have to initiate sleep manually (or wait until automatic sleep). Enter CTRL+C to stop SleepWatcher...

Another approach which might be more future proof is to just unload discoveryd when the machine is about to go to sleep and then load it again at wakeup. Sleepwatcher can be used to run scripts at sleep and wakeup events. My /Library/LaunchDaemons/de.bernhard-baehr.sleepwatcher.plist looks like this:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"><plist version="1.0"><dict> <key>Label</key> <string>de.bernhard-baehr.sleepwatcher</string> <key>ProgramArguments</key> <array> <string>/usr/local/sbin/sleepwatcher</string> <string>-V</string> <string>-s /etc/rc.sleep</string> <string>-w /etc/rc.wakeup</string> </array> <key>RunAtLoad</key> <true/> <key>KeepAlive</key>...

There seem to be an issue with building a bootable USB with 10.8.3. At least with my graphics card (Radeon 6870) the boot stops with a white screen. I don't know of any way to solve this so make sure you don't have this issue before deleting your <10.8.3 "Install Mac OS X" app.

I've tried before, but it still failed. @tseug: Do you have a solution for my issues? My only solution is to follow step 1 which tells you to buy Mountain Lion. If you, for any reason, do not follow this step you are on your own.

This method was created (and tested) for the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 motherboard but it should be relatively easy to modify for any other motherboard. You will be creating a Boot USB that can be used to install OS X Mountain Lion on a Hackintosh (or a genuine mac for that matter). Clean install Prerequisites A USB drive (8 GB) or a spare partition. We'll assume you'll use a USB device here An install partition for OS X Mountain Lion. Let's call it MountainLion A DSDT.aml (optional) v2.1: install.zip Directions Buy and download Mac OS X Mountain Lion from the App Store. In Disk Utility, format the USB as Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) and give it some name: We'll use Boot here but it can be anything. Make sure that "GUID Partition Table" is selected under "Options..." If you already have a custom DSDT.aml you wish to use, add it to install/Extra/.

Use ALC885HDA_Lion_MLion_V1.00.zip from here. It works for me with layout id 12. That is,Copy Platforms.xml.zlib and layout12.xml.zlib to /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/Resources/Copy ALC885HDA.kext to /System/Library/ExtensionsEdit DSDT as described in the readmetouch /System/Library/Extensionsreboot

Nevermind, got it to work! Also, please tell me the OP will update this script for Mountain Lion once it is released later this month? OP, FTW on this script. Works perfectly on my GA-P35-DS4! I will probably update it for Mountain Lion. Although, if the rumour holds (launch date july 25) it probably won't be on launch day as I am on holiday at the time. ..any suggestions to solve that? In the mean time an old partition 10.5 is bootable..can I copy something from that to solve? Or I relaunch the finalize script..? You might need additional kexts and/or changing org.chameleon.Boot.plist . I don't know how to deal with hardware I can't test.

"The first thing to understand is that hackers actually like hard problems and good, thought-provoking questions about them. If we didn't, we wouldn't be here. If you give us an interesting question to chew on we'll be grateful to you; good questions are a stimulus and a gift. Good questions help us develop our understanding, and often reveal problems we might not have noticed or thought about otherwise. Among hackers, “Good question!” is a strong and sincere compliment. Despite this, hackers have a reputation for meeting simple questions with what looks like hostility or arrogance. It sometimes looks like we're reflexively rude to newbies and the ignorant. But this isn't really true. What we are, unapologetically, is hostile to people who seem to be unwilling to think or to do their own homework before asking questions. People like that are time sinks — they take without giving back, and they waste time we could have spent on another question more inte...

How to update to 10.7.4: 1. Update (Combo or Software update). 2. Boot into USB 3. Rerun finalize 4. Reboot into your installation. Done. kernel.log gives some error messages regarding SMC::smcReadKeyAction and SMC::smcInitHelper in 10.7.4 but it doesn't seem to have any adverse effects.

This method was created (and tested) for the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 motherboard but it should be relatively easy to modify for any other motherboard. It's a CLI at the moment for this reason but a GUI might exist at some point (Especially if someone else makes one ;) ).
