  1. I have read many sleep issue forums and I think my situation is unique. I’m using Yosemite 10.10.2 with Clover and when it sleeps the screen goes black the fans stop and it seems like normal sleep until I try and wake it. If I try to wake it by pressing the power button (*see note below) The computer initiates a restart but cycles continuously trying to post but never posts. To get the MB to post at that stage the only thing I can do is remove and replace the CMOS battery and reset the BIOS settings. My motherboard is an EX58 UD3R 1.6 FK with Xeon 5650 cpu. *Note- This system using Chimera and Mavericks sleep worked fine as long as AppleRTC was patched and the normal way to wake from sleep was to press the power button to re-activate the system and then touch the keyboard or mouse to bring monitor to life. I have ‘AppleRTC = True’ in the Clover config.plist & I’ve tried ‘Darkwake = 1’. Neither has an effect on the behavior I described. I hope someone here can offer some guidance.
  2. Not really a huge problem, just an annoyance with an artifact intermittently occurring in my finder/trash/menu windows. (I uploaded a screenshot). Notice the blank fields all contain some gray (grey) artifacts. It most often appears gray or white but can also be other random colors, often some reds and gray. I enabled the card by adding efi string to com.apple.Boot.plist file. (I also uploaded a screenhsot of my system profile/graphic info.) This is the system: OS 10.6.4 (using Empire EFI and retail 10.6 install disk/software update) GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard (Clocked 21 x 160BC) Temp 47degreeC @ idle Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor EVGA 01G-P3-N988-TR GeForce 9800 GT HDMI 1GB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory DELL ST2410: Resolution: 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) The system seems rock solid except for this little screen glitch. It would be great to fix it. Any thoughts? Thanks.
