  1. I think I read that RehabMan said that hibernation is not working on Hackintosh - no I dont know if he means only on Laptops oder Desktops or in general.. Even if hibernate is not possible - there must be a way of fixing the sleep mode and stopping the laptop from restarting.
  2. hi folks, i just installed El Cap on my ProBook 440 G3 (Skylake). When I stay long enough idle sleep mode activates.. at least the display turns off, but i hear no change regarding HDD and Fan speed ( I can literally hear no change) and after a while in this "sleep" mode my Laptop just reboots - and whats even worse ! After that it gives me some stupid message about my Battery being empty and resets my BIOS settings. This only happens in "sleep" tho. Anyone know of this problem? I've seen a couple of posts regarding hibernatemode but they all change it to 21 or 29 - I can't apply this command. As soon as I enter "sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 21" (or 29) my terminal output says: Usage: pmset <options> See pmset(1) for details: 'man pmset' well, when of course I have looked the manpage up and it says 0 3 25 are possible (no big surprise here LOL) so how should I set it to 21 or 29 ?? and will this fix the sleep mode / restart problem anyway?? best regards
  3. hi folks, in a lot of Guides and Tutorials that I've seen, I've read instructions like "insert this patch inside your DSDT" or "insert this patch inside your SSDT" and almost everytime MaciASL is used for these "patches". Now, I've followed a Guide on how to dump my origin SSDTs and DSDT via Clover F4. I've also read how to get *.dsl Files out of my *.aml by running the iasl command inside my terminal and disassamble the files. So far, so good. The problematic part starts here - All these tutorials say to insert these patches via MaciASL but there are a couple of problems related to that 1. Sometimes people refer to the DSDT, sometimes to the SSDT. So far I have only seen one DSDT inside my /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin/ Folder BUT I have 15! SSDT Files... So how do I know which one to choose? I think one time I read something like ".. patch the SSDT File containing your Graphics Card... " (or something like that) - how do I know what piece of hardware I located in which file? Is there a known structure, is it random, do I just have to open every SSDT.dsl and start looking for something specific? 2. Now this is what really freaks me out :D Even If I know which file I have to "patch" - I just can't ! For exampe I open my DSDT.dsl, press Patch, to left side some sources from RehabMan that I've added come down and I can select some patches, If I try to paste a patch code - that somebody send me - inside the little window where the code goes I just cant press apply? what am I doing wrong? How do I apply a patch to my DSDT ? It could also be that I'm using the wrong DSDT file but so far I've only seen one ... In almost every tutorial I've read I would have to disassamble something in order to patch it or change something, but I just cant seem to find the correct file or apply these patches. Another example would be something I've read inside a patch, it says: I dont have this HDEF file, is it even a file, do I have to downloaded it, where if so? Inside my DSDT I cant seem to find anything, and I can't apply the patch with MaciASL... It is a great thing that a lot of guys on this forum help out and accept files from other users in order to fix them, but I would really like to do as much as possible on my own, since I don't want to wait for a handout and do nothing :/ I would appreciate it if someone could clearify some of the above mentioned best regards
  4. But this brings me to another question. How do I know if my Power Management is working properly? I've downloaded the Intel Power Gadget, the Graphs are usually very low, when I start running something bigger it jumps up. the green on (GT), I assume to be Graphics? Its more or less always pretty low. My Fans are not blasting out of controll or anything.. I don't know if this is already normal LOL what would be an indicator that something is not right
  5. the guide says to boot with -cpuid msgbuf=309212 do I have to sudo nvram boot-args="-cpuid msgbuf=309212" or am I wrong? EDIT: got it! I added the arguments via Clover Configurator and as it seems I could help Piker out with his research.
  6. I will check this out. Dont know if it is a problem that I already ran the ssdtPRGen.sh :S
  7. Hi, I've installed El Cap on my new ProBook 440 G3 i5 6200U HD 520 Skylake. I used Clover UEFI Method in order to get it running. Well, now would be a great time to get my Power Management to normal since my battery is being drained pretty fast and sometimes I get BIOS warnings because of time or heat or mainboard battery LOL I've tried Piker-Alpha ssdtPRGen.sh script but it gave me an error MacBookHP@Branimirs-MacBook-Air:~$ ./ssdtPRGen.sh ssdtPRGen.sh v0.9 Copyright (c) 2011-2012 by † RevoGirl v6.6 Copyright (c) 2013 by † Jeroen v18.2 Copyright (c) 2013-2016 by Pike R.
