How do I get the sleep mode to run properly?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,


I have a big problem with the sleep function.


Sleep isn't working properly. As soon as I press the button or close the lid, it will go into "half-sleep". I can still hear the fan working, also the hard drive. The moon on my laptop is blinking.


When I open the lid, I just have a black screen and I have to hard reset my laptop....


Second thread for another problem. Hope it is ok for you guys.


I attached my DSDT for you. I don't know whether it is helpful or not.... (Credits to Griven@hackintosh-forum)



best regards

After reinstall, WLAN works now, but sleep has the same issue.


Another issue is that i cant shutdown my hackintosh completely. Screen turns black, but I still hear my fan working.



EDIT: My bad guys. Wrong DSDT path in chameleon boot list :-) Shutdown working properly. Sleep open left

I had the same issue. I found that I needed to add my card (465 GTX) into the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement - not only is my card cooler now when idle, but it allows my system to sleep properly.
