Crashing after sleep & wakeup.

Hi,

 

I've installed SL on my Dell XPS 13 and have pretty much got everything working, except the battery monitor (which I can live with) and a problem where the machine just crashes after waking up from sleep (which I can't).

 

I've got a patch DSDT which is from someone with exactly the same laptop, thus I am not using SleepEnabler.

 

I've tried all sorts of different kext to try and fix the problem to no avail.

I've also got system-type=2 in my com.apple.Boot.plist.

 

One recommendation I've seen is turning off USB legacy support in the BIOS, but my laptop doesn't have that option.

 

 

What tends to happen is that when it wakes up, the keyboard & mouse (USB or touchpad) are dead and sometimes the screen is dead.

 

Occasionally I can press a key, and then it just starts bleeping like the system has crashed.

 

 

I'm on 10.6.6 that I installed using MyHack installer.

 

 

Does anyone have any other ideas of what I could check or do to fix the problem?

Hi,

 

make sure you have all 4 boxes in Energy Saver checked. Then use newest FakeSMC, you can install it via [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] from http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/ for example. If your bios have any setting like power management etc., use S3 hibernating mode and HDEF to 64bit.

 

Also try to search the forum for your laptop model. I think you need to have your GPU installed properly or it will prevent sleep from working. It was my case, I had to switch to 32b kernel in order to get my GPU work with sleep. If you have HW acceleration and resolution working, it doesn`t mean that sleep works too.

 

Regards

Yay.... Thanks.

 

After using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and installing the latest FakeSMC, sleep and wakeup work fine, as long as I do sleep from the menu.

Closing the lid will just leave me with a black screen on wakeup.

 

One step closer.
