  1. HD 7xxx-Can we eliminate the Sleep Trick?

    You need to auto login for this to work. Also, try to increase the 20 seconds and see if that helps. If the script is invoked, but the machine is for some reason prevented to go to sleep for 20 seconds, the "wake up" is going to be run before the script has a chance to put the machine to sleep. Unfortunately, I have not been able to discern a way to set the timer to count from the moment the machine goes to sleep, only from the moment the sleep command is sent to the system, which may be well before that.
  2. HD 7xxx-Can we eliminate the Sleep Trick?

    I wrote a script to automate the sleeping/waking cycle. Available here: http://cl.ly/PEL2 Make sure to change PASSWORD to your user password as pmset needs to be run by root. Also change time_to_sleep to whatever is desired. 20 seconds oddly enough seems to be pretty much instantaneous on my machine. In plain text: #!/bin/bash time_to_sleep=20 #seconds now=$(date +%s) target_unix=$(($now+$time_to_sleep)) target_time=$(date -r $target_unix +"%m/%d/%y %T") echo PASSWORD | sudo -S pmset schedule wake "$target_time" if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then pmset sleepnow else echo "This script must be run as root." fi EDIT: Running the code as an Automator application seems to work better.
  3. Pandora's Box (Beta1 Testing)

    I'm redoing the installation in an effort to get my 7950 to work. I'm on a pretty old GA-X48-DS5 / Core 2 Duo system. I decided to include a custom DSDT (which I'd forgotten last time around when I got the installation to "just work"). The DSDT is basically just an "extract DSDT" + the proper motherboard patch from here: http://olarila.com/forum/packs.php + the ALC889A patch from here: http://olarila.com/forum/patches.php. I put the DSDT in the directory popped up by Pandora. Now when I boot, I get a KP when booting into the installer (http://cl.ly/OoW5): Also, I noticed that Pandora has put my DSDT in two places (http://cl.ly/OoBC): I don't know if this is intentional or not. I'm not sure what to make of the ACPI error, so any help at all would be extremely welcome. The forum posts I've read have hinted that it could be RAID related, but I'm not using RAID so that can't very well be it.
  4. Pandora's Box (Beta1 Testing)

    Thanks! This works really well. I still have to work out how to get my 7950 working, but Pandora got me further right off the bat than any other tool I've tried. As an FYI, I had to add #!/bin/bash to /Applications/Pandora.app/Contents/Resources/Pandora-Lionizer.command in order to get it to run, though.
