  1. Asus 1201N Installation and support [Mav]

    I see. Too bad, but I am not willing to resolder the BT module just yet... True, Macs don't sleep when external screen (and power, I think) is connected and lid is closed. However, it seems that my 1201N sleeps whenever I close the lid. (I tried this with external monitor connected at and after boot, with and without the power cord.)
  2. Asus 1201N Installation and support [Mav]

    TimeWalker75a, thanks again for this amazing job. I've been regularly using my 1201N with Mavericks for about a month now, and it has proven to be extremely reliable. (Performance-wise the Atom processor shows its lack of speed, but it is not to slow, when compared to an actual MacBookAir3,1. Perhaps, it will be even more responsive once I upgrade to an SSD.) Anyhow, I'd like to know if it is possible to add/enable some more functionality: with the Support package v1.2, Bluetooth devices do not wake the machine from sleep. (Maybe the Bluetooth controller doesn't support this, but it shows as an option in System Preferences/Bluetooth/Advanced...) If it is at all possible to enable 'Bluetooth wake from sleep...', would it be possible to use the 1201N with lid closed and only external monitor connected (via HDMI) - like a real mac? (I know I'm pushing it, I just have to ask.) Thanks in advance

    OK, thanks for the clarifications. As stated, the GPU clock issue was also present with Mountain Lion (10.8.5) in my case. What specifically will I need to solder if I choose to use the backlit keyboard? (I am well experienced with soldering, just not sure if I have the right equipment.)
  4. Asus 1201N Installation and support [Mav]

    @TimeWalker75a: Great job! I'm writing this from my recently purchased 1201N with Mavericks, Clover and your package installed. Works like a charm (even with only 2GB of RAM), I do have a few observations though. I've tried two installs: Mavericks and Mountain Lion (in that order), and ended up using Mavericks restored from a TimeMachine backup (of my MacBookAir3,1) - I was actually able to boot the restored image (with a differently configured Clover boot image from a USB stick). Anyway, here are my observations: It seems that my system is not aware that there is a keyboard and trackpad connected, which is somewhat annoying as the Bluetooth Keyboard/Trackpad Setup Assistant kept popping up until I unchecked the two boxes in Bluetooth Advanced Settings. Of curse, that means that I have to connect an external keyboard and mouse whenever I boot into recovery image just to get everything started. (The built in keyboard and trackpad work perfectly, even when booted into recovery...) Waking from sleep takes the GPU to full speed (486 MHz) as you already mentioned. Only that on my 1201N that was a problem with Mountain Lion also. Reinstalling your package did not help. In Mavericks closing the lid will induce sleep in 10 seconds (at most). Pressing the power button or choosing Sleep from the Apple menu will however take anywhere between 20 and 45 seconds. One other question: You mentioned you are waiting for a backlit keyboard to arrive. Can you point me to your source for a backlit keyboard? (I'm planning to replace the keyboard myself.)
