  1. Yup. That did it Wow, thank you. I was even looking the the right area of the DSDT but it would have taken me weeks to work out what to change. Thank you so much. My laptop is now fully working with Mavericks. Time to share with other S3 owners.
  2. Yeah, looks that way. At least I know now where to look to fix it. Thanks for point me in the right direction Sorry to ask for yet more help but is that a straight forward thing to do? Would you know by looking at my DSDT what I'd need to change? Just had a quick google and there seems to be some info out there talking about DSDTs and Design Capacity so hopefully I can find a fix given enough time but I am really struggling with getting my head around this.
  3. So I checked and the battery is indeed rated 3280mAh and I am using your fork. Using the debug version and got his in my system.log...

  4. The official specs on the battery are 3260mAh. I'll crack open the laptop just to make sure though before I go any further.
  5. I see. I missed that but it was in the early hours of the morning. Just off the top of your head would this be something I need to fix in the DSDT. i.e. change/set the design capacity?
  6. The status looks fine to me (see below). I'll take your advice and try the debug version when I get the chance. Thanks again. { "PostChargeWaitSeconds" = 120 "TimeRemaining" = 65535 "InstantTimeToEmpty" = 65535 "ExternalChargeCapable" = Yes "CellVoltage" = (3148,3148,3148,3148) "PermanentFailureStatus" = 0 "BatteryInvalidWakeSeconds" = 30 "Voltage" = 12592 "MaxCapacity" = 3340 "Quick Poll" = No "AtWarnLevel" = No "Manufacturer" = "SONYCorp" "CurrentCapacity" = 3340 "LegacyBatteryInfo" = {"Amperage"=0,"Flags"=5,"Capacity"=3340,"Current"=3340,"Voltage"=12592,$ "FirmwareSerialNumber" = 4980 "BatteryInstalled" = Yes "CycleCount" = 536 "DesignCapacity" = 6560 "AvgTimeToFull" = 65535 "ManufactureDate" = 0 "AtCriticalLevel" = No "BatteryType" = "LiP" "InstantTimeToFull" = 65535 "BatterySerialNumber" = "AP11D4F- 1374" "PostDischargeWaitSeconds" = 120 "Serial" = " 1374" "Temperature" = 0 "InstantAmperage" = 0 "MaxErr" = 0 "FullyCharged" = Yes "DeviceName" = "AP11D4F" "IOGeneralInterest" = "IOCommand is not serializable" "Amperage" = 0 "IsCharging" = No "ExternalConnected" = Yes "AvgTimeToEmpty" = 65535 }
  7. I'm going to need to do more reading up on DSDTs just to understand what that means But yeah, just tried the ACPIBatteryManager.kext with the DSDT as it is and it works. Sorry for the trouble. I'm getting a message about the condition of the battery and that I need to replace it but that's easily ignored. Many thanks. You've been a great help, not just with this but from your many other posts.
  8. Hi, I'm really struggling to patch my DSDT. I've attached a copy of my current DSDT. It'd be great if anyone with the expertise and the time could apply the edits for me. It's for an Acer Aspire S3-951. I DSDT I'm uploading is one that's had various edits applied , let me know if it's better to have a clean DSDT. Hope someone can help. Thanks for all the good work. dsdt.aml.zip
