  1. Installed from 10.6.3 Universal, updated to 10.6.4 with update tool. First sleep / wake cycle is fine; with the one odd symptom of CPU fan running faster than normal after resume. Second sleep is OK, wake looks like it will be OK, desktop comes back up for one second then PC does immediate hard shutdown/lockup. Pressing the power button at this point causes the lights and CPU fan to come on for about one second, then the system immediately shuts back off. The first time this happened I freaked a little thinking I had some fried something... even though I knew that was unlikely. It turns out I must pull the power cord AND the battery for a few seconds, then the PC will boot again. Using/not using SleepEnabler.kext and NullCPUManagement.kext make no difference. I wondered if the DSDT signaling for the laptop lid switch was screwy and tried an alternate DSDT LID patch, no help either. The lid switch may not be tied to anything in the system, as closing the lid does not induce sleep. System.log and Kernel.log don't seem to have any meaningful messages. They basically appear to indicate Sleep/Wake went OK. After quite a bit of searching and reading, I am running out of ideas. Can anyone offer some ideas on how I can collect better info from the system to troubleshoot this? So far I haven't seen any other posts with this specific problem. Thanks

    If you have problems with noise/distorted audio after resuming from sleep mode, you can try the trick I posted in the Voodoo forums: http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php?...msg1718#msg1718 The only downside is the volume icon gets dropped from the taskbar.
  3. HP DV9207us w/ 256M 7600 go CI= software, QE = no I have the same issue with NVkush. The bummer is I had it working 100% once, then screwed up my install and had to start over, now I can't figure out how I did it before. (
  4. Screen Wakeup Hack/Workaround

    Thanks to you both, this works great!!
  5. I have the same laptop (dv9207us) and have the same issue. :-( ** EDIT ** I found a lovely hack that fixes this issue. :-) http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=107030
  6. Update for anyone still fighting this issue, I was able to fix this, but it required booting into Windows. Step 1: Find the Samsung S03 firmware for this drive. I got it from here: http://www.x-drivers.com/catalog/bios_firm...l632m/6060.html Step 2: Extract the BIOS image from the EXE file using an archive utility. I used 7-zip. Step 3: Find and download the samsung flash utility "sfdnwin" for windows. I found instructions on this page: http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?p=37395 Step 4: Start "sfdnwin" with the "-nocheck" option and it will allow you to flash your drive with the Samsung firmware. Reboot to OSX, and burn, burn, burn. I hope this helps someone. As always, your mileage may vary...
  7. This works perfectly for me on my HP laptop with 256M GO 7600. (iPC 10.5.6 w/ vanilla 9.6.0 kernel) From /System/Library/Extensions/ I deleted: NVinjectGo.kext and copied in the NVdarwin.kext Works perfectly, hardware acceleration and QE enabled. :-) Thanks for sharing!!
  8. Atheros kext won't load automatically

    Sometimes you just need to post in a forum to knock your brain free. :-) I was only looking at the logs from dmesg, and wasn't looking at /var/log/system.log - The problem was my cards ID was in the Info.plist for AirPortAtheros5424.kext. I deleted the line: <string>pci168c,58a</string> from that Info.plist and now the AirPortAtheros.kext loads during bootup like it should.
  9. HP DV9207us w/ Atheros AR5006EX wireless (I think?) Installed from iPC 10.5.6 Final DVD. Everything worked out of the box except the wireless. Some quality time with Google led me to try several things, but I ended up loading Chun-Nan's IOPCMCIAFamily.kext and IO80211Family.kext. Now the command: kextload /System/Library/Extentions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortAtheros.kext gives me FULLY working Wifi with WPA2 support, configurable via the normal Airport tool. My problem: I can't get the kext to load automatically during boot. I have to manually load it after the system boots. I've tried creating a .plist file and putting it in /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ with no luck. I also tried putting a .plist file in /etc/mach_init.d/ again with no luck. SystemProfiler says my card is "AirPort Extreme (0x168C, 0x58A)" There was no line in the Info.plist file for 168c,5a so I added that line... but still no luck. Any ideas? Thanks.
