#1965657 [GUIDE] Making a DSDT.aml for Dell XPS M1330, XPS M1530, and XPS M1730

I have similar results to the others in that my machine freezes when connecting the laptop to the HDMI port of my BenQ E2420HD monitor via an HDMI-HDMI cable. The variables I can think of:the tv/monitor you are connecting to is obviously a different model to minethe cable itself maybe different in some way (did you use a HDMI-DVI cable on your Toshiba TV?)SMBIOS (MBP 3.1 vs 5.1)Maybe anyone who wants to try and gets it working might like to indicate in more detail the TV/Monitor, cable & SMBIOS used?  I use a HDMI->DVI adapter to connect to a HP w2007 flat panel monitor. It only has Digital (DVI-D) and VGA inputs but no HDMI. So HDMI out from M1530 to DVI in to the monitor through the adapter. Works fine. Connection to the Toshiba REGZA 52RV530U HDTV is HDMI->HDMI using a straight through HDMI cable. This cable is more permanently used in a PS3 playstation. Thus, I just unplug the HDMI cable from the PS3 and plug it into my M1530. This is the setup in...

I have tried a rollback (AppleACPIPlatform.kext) solution to the Sleep problem on Mavericks of our rigs and it has worked flawlessly so far, at least on my hardware config (pls. see sig). BTW, this is not the rollback of AppleACPIPlatform.kext we use under 10.8.5, thus not the one from 10.6.8 either. For reference, I have attached a .zip of my /Extra directory and the ACPI kext itself. This rollback kext can also be downloaded from this link - http://www.osx86.net...t-for-os-x-109/ In addition, I also use the /usr/bin/pmset -a hibernate mode 0 incantation. Albeit, I force this in my /etc/rc.local (also attached) to load automatically at bootup. In my /Extra dir, notice that I use the UseKernelCache=No in org.chameleon.Boot.plist, thus all my user kexts are loaded from /Extra/Extensions. The FakeSMC.kext in my /E/E came form HWMonitor ver. 5.3.901. I hope this works on others, too. Attached Files  AppleACPIPlatform.kext.zip 390.56KB 29 downloads...

Just want to share a little variation on my rig's setup... - My HDMI had been working fine up to 10.9GM, although it would certainly not work if you use both HDMI and VGA at the same time (using 2 external displays). It works fine both in extended and mirrored options. - Sleep doesn't work for me in 10.9GM as well but I choose to set my Computer Sleep to Never because of the use of an external display with the built-in display lid closed. This setting has been working fine for me since DP1. - Except for Lion, I've always configured my Extensions to have a separate /Extra directory (enabled through the boot loader option UseKernelCache=No). Because, I use a USB drive on a real Mac for my application collaboration. The app I use has e-license and it's convenient to have the OS with it when I need to use the app on some other real mac hardware. - Under ML, using a separate /Extra directory started working fine again after this behavior stopped working properly, with...
