    Sorry to have offended you, it must have ben my interpretation of 100% working. Obviously any hackintosh can be a compromise, but the overall intention of those with the hacking capability is to get as close as is practicable to a fully working Macintosh, and that includes sound, video, wake, sleep and attached devices. Obviously you have more talent at these things than I, so if I have driven you away I'll refrain from posting here again so you can contribute without my naive interruptions.

    Are you saying that USB devices (e.g. Bluetooth, Elgato EyeTV) work after wake from sleep?

    From Asus's support website P5N7A-VM BIOS 0519 1. Fix the system does not beep when booting up. 2. Fix the HDD size is shown incorrectly when the size is bigger than 2.2TB. 3. Fix the system may hang at ExpressGate.

    Try the later modded ROM http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1341125

    sylph93 Tried your DSDT after making changes to support DVI/DVI video out, overriding dgsga's v4 ROM. However, I did not get any change in behaviour. In particular, Bluetooth keyboard/mouse and EyeTV failed to restart after a wake, although Apple remote worked fine. Could you explain a bit more about your DSDT. What were the differences you achieved when compared with dgsga's v4/v5 ROMs. Has anyone been able to include your DSDT into a ROM image. I tried using cbrom.exe, from advice from dgsga, but every time I tried to use it it would hang. Also, what are the differences between the two DSDT files you posted in post #1095.

    Won't need to wake from BT keyboard. In fact, I would prefer it that way as there would be less chance of accidently waking up the system. Have you the details of how you patch the DSDT into the BIOS?

    Hi kramer2k. I'm a little confused, as I've never posted a DSDT. However, I would be interested in your configuration above. Having USB wake correctly from sleep (especially Bluetooth) even if I can only wake via the power button would simplify use of the Plex/HTPC system by the rest of the family. Does your new configuration suffer from BIOS reset after a restart after a sleep, as that is another pain with the system fans going into roar mode. With regard to USB behaviour after sleep, I have noticed some unpredictability. Originally, I had to add kextunload/kextload a USB extension, using sleepwatcher, for the system to recognise the Apple remote after a sleep. Recently, it has started working without sleepwatcher actions. I don't like unpredictable behaviour. I've tried a number of kextunload/kextload and restarting blued sequences to fix the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse on wakeup but have had no success. As traffic is one way (device -> system) I suspect the keyboard/mouse software handler does not know the extension has been removed for some time after the kext is unloaded and so does not try to reconnect. Hopefully with your work this will no longer be needed.

    Hi dgsga, Is there any chance of you posting details of how you go about patching the ASUS Bios with the new DSDT. I'd like to try some experiments of my own. Thanks.
  9. Asus P5N7A-VM

    Thanks for the reply. I tried running your DSDT together with dgsga's v4 moded ROM but then had problems changing the video resolution - I use HDMI. I believe this is an NCAP problem and I did notice that the string in your DSDT was not that suggested by dgsga, so I'll try and update your DSDT to fix that. Hopefully, your new DSDT will remove the need to install SleepWatcher in order to reset USB devices.

    sylph93, What is the difference in the two dsdt files you posted, and can you describe in more detail what issues they resolve. Can they be used as an override to dgsga's moded ROM or should I use the unmodded 0514 ROM. Also, was the moded dsdt designed for HDMI/DVI output, as per dgsga's post http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1337075 Thanks

    With the problems of USB devices not working after wake from sleep I tried to install a Belkin USB 2.0 low profile PCI card. No luck. Although the PCI USB ports work very well the machine will not now sleep. Has anyone had any success with a PCI USB card?
  12. Asus P5N7A-VM

    I don't really understand why I was having problems (see my last post) but I succeeded getting back to my previous state where I can reliably sleep and wake with a working remote. To simplify things I then got rid of the ~/.sleep and ~/.wakeup files and put the kextload/kextunload in the /etc/rc.sleep and /etc/rc.wakeup files directly. I also followed someone else's example to loop the load and unload actions until the command returned success. My main problem now is the reseting of the BIOS after sleeping and waking the machine. I see that there is a CMOS Reset patch detailed in the DSDTSE application. Have any of the DSDT experts (e.g. dgsga) tried to apply it to the P5N7A? If you are using the P5N7A with DVI/HMI output I would suggest using dgsga's moded rom (V4) in post http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1341125 You cannot change the resolution from default in dgsga's later one without getting a black/blue screen. For wireless I bought this PCI express card from Ebay, item 260491350302. I also had to buy 2 very cheap antennas and cables, and mod/drill the backplate, but it worked out the box, connects within a few seconds and survives sleep and wake. I can provide more details if anyone is interested.

    Well, my success was short lived after a recent reboot I have been unable to get the remote working again. I think it may be something to do with setting up of the BIOS before starting the machine. Since the BIOS is corrupted every time the machine is put to sleep, I need to keep better records of how the BIOS was set up. Another point to note is that the Power button and Software sleep means of sleeping the machine appear to be not the same. A part of the system.log file shows this - look for Mar 18 18:39:44 PlexBox configd[15]: Sleep: Success - AC - Power Button Sleep Mar 18 18:39:44 PlexBox configd[15]: Wake: Success - AC - PWRB OHC2 EHC2 Mar 18 18:39:24 PlexBox configd[15]: PMConnection mDNSResponder com.apple.powermanagement.applicationresponse.slowresponse 1271 ms Mar 18 18:39:33 PlexBox loginwindow[43]: loginwindow SleepWakeCallback will power on, Currenttime:3/18/2010 6:39:33.004 PM - Waketime:3/18/2010 6:39:33.000 PM = Deltatime:0.004309893 Mar 18 18:39:33 PlexBox ptmd[40]: [ERROR] Failed to update ODD thermal key to 0 (read 0xe00002c9) Mar 18 18:39:33 PlexBox configd[15]: network configuration changed.

    Well I seem to have a process by which I can use the Apple remote after a system wake. It involves using SleepWatcher http://www.bernhard-baehr.de/ After installation its behaviour is to look for the files ~/.sleep just before the machine goes to sleep and ~/.wakeup as soon the the machine wakes and execute the scripts if they exist. In these files I put the shell script commands kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIRController.kext in ~/.sleep and kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIRController.kext in ~/.wakeup Provided I use the physical power button to sleep and wake the computer the remote continues to wake. If I sleep using other means (remote buddy, mouse apple menu, Plex, etc) the IR controller fails to restart. I suspect that in these cases the unload was not successful. I will try experimenting with other procedures. For example, if I don't unload the kext before going to sleep I can use the remote to wake the computer, but cannot use it thereafter. So I will try to include the unload and load in the same ~/.wakeup. My first attempts at this failed, but it may be that the load unload activities are run as background tasks so that the request to reload the kext precedes the completion of the unload and so fails. Once I get a bluetooth dongle I will try a similar trick for reestablishing connection with a bluetooth keyboard.

    Has anyone who has been involved in modifying DSDTs for the P5N7A have any gut feeling as to whether the problems with USB devices (bluetooth, IR receivers, hard disk, etc) not recovering correctly after wake from sleep can be fixed. I'd like to start playing around with DSDTs, but if those of you with much more experience have failed I can't see that my endeavours would be fruitful.
