After trying to reinstall VoodooPS2 in order to try to get the mouse functioning with 3 finger gestures I've now lost all mousepad activity. Reinstalled the kext using kexthelper here are the privileges on the kexts.

It should be working....

maybe it has something to do with the battery manager. If you remove the battery manager I noticed better stability with suspend / resume operations. I'm interested in the result!

Rock solid stability after removing the battery manager. No hangups when resuming! Downside is i can't see the battery level anymore.

Any advice with choppy mouse? It's not working with 3 finger gestures either, only 2. What kext provides this function?

I'm really happy about my setup. I'm using AppleHDA and external monitors are working though DP. My mouse is a bit choppy to move around but it works ok, i usually dock the computer to a dock and use usb keyboard and mouse. Everything on the dock works.

The problem is however, if i put the computer to sleep and unplug it and move to a new place, it will crash within half an hour of resuming. This is annoying as i run a Windows 7 machine inside OSX using VMWare Fusion. Ive even noticed instances where I've just accidentally unplug the computer and then around half hour later i'd crash.

Using all the Kexts in the post, not using VoodooHDA though.

Any advice what to do regarding the crashes? Otherwise this is working sweet :)

Hey all

I found that my ethernet card wasn't working again when cable pulled from the computer. It would never get an ip address again, an thus needed a reboot to get networking going again. I tried replacing the e1000 kext and i found another version of it that seems to work better.

I havnt tested the firewire port. But the ExpressCard slot is working. I use it with a serial adapter to configure switches and routers.

Nice post! :thumbsup_anim:

I'm planning to use my elitebook as my workstation for my DAW (Pro Tools 10).

For that purpose, i need my AD/DA and DSP processors to be connected via Firewire 800 port (via ExpressCard adapter with TI chipset).

Quick question, is the Firewire port and/or the ExpressCard will work with this installation?

Thank you :D
