10.8.1 Wake From Sleep Causes System to Hang

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have an ECS 945GCT-M3 Rev. 3.1 successfully up and running with 10.8.1. Everything works great except for wake from sleep. When waking my machine from sleep I get one of the following three issues:

  1. System wakes to desktop, but the system is almost completely frozen up. The mouse moves small amounts every second or so, then the system eventually becomes completely unresponsive and goes to a black text prompt.
  2. System wakes to a white screen. No mouse cursor, system is not responsive and eventually goes to a black text prompt.
  3. System wakes but monitor does not and system is not responsive.

In the case of both 1 and 2 the text prompt displays:

 

Kext loading now disabled.
Kext unloading now disabled.
Kext autounloading now disabled.
Kernel requests now disabled.

 

Then, eventually, the system reboots.

Specs:

ECS 945GCT-M3 Rev. 3.1

Nvidia 8400GS 512MB

Intel Core 2 Duo E6700

 

What's Working:

♦ Audio - VoodooHDA

♦ QE/CI - Native (add device id to NVDANV50Hal.kext and NVDAResman.kext and DSDT Nvidia desktop hack)

♦ Native SpeedStep (I think, I have no NullCPUPowerManagement.kext installed)

♦ Network - Added AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext to IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/

 

If anyone is able to help me get my system to properly wake from sleep, I would really appreciate it. I'll try to post some images of my bios settings in a few...

Sorry to bump this thread so soon, but I'm trying to get this build to my grandfather sometime this weekend (Windows is too difficult for him to use).

 

Sleep seems to always work just fine, but wake is very inconsistent. I have read similar reports from people about having an unresponsive desktop on wake, but there doesn't seem to be a consistent root cause in those cases. If anyone has experienced the freezing desktop on wake and has found a fix, please let me know what it was. I'm assuming something in my dsdt is just no quite right.

 

FYI, my original dsdt extraction did not contain a reference to an HPET on my system so I manually added that entry. This enabled me to remove nullcpupowermanagement.kext and have native speedstep (I think) but there could easily be an error in the HPET code I added.

 

I also found users complaining about the freeze in association with an IRQ conflict with their SATA device. The problem in my case is that the 945GCT-M3 does not have a bios option to enable AHCI and only runs in IDE mode. So, the solution that has been posted to this problem is not something that will work for me.

 

Again, I appreciate any help.

[solved]

 

So, I randomly found a post (and of course didn't bookmark it, so I lost it again) that talked about a mouse stutter and system freeze caused by a cpu tsc sync error. I installed VoodooTSCSync.kext in /S/L/E and Voila! My system will wake properly every time now. Still have to fix EHCI. Does not properly wake. Will post updated dsdt when I can.

I have the same mobo and wanted

with SL and wanted to reformat to new osX.

Thank you for posting a follow-up on this, this problem has been bugging me since I upgraded my Sandy Bridge system from 10.7.2 to 10.7.5. VoodooTSCSync did the trick!

I always use retail from App Store installed to a USB drive using myHack. It is pretty straight forward from there.  If you have trouble booting, try with -v to see what the error is.  I usually boot from the USB installer drive using the boot options -v UseKernelCache=No  If you have an nvidia video card and get stuck at [PCI Configuration begin] try appending npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000.  Whatever works.

Hey I wanted to ask if you had Lion running on this board and what kind of sleep behavior were you getting. I have Lion 10.7.5 running on ECS 945GCT-M v3 board and I can get it to sleep but when you wake it only CPU wakes video doesn't come back on. I installed the VoodooTSCSync.kext but it made no difference. Any other tips you could pass on would be appreciated. Other details on my system are Myhack install method, E8400 cpu with Nvidia 7300gt video, patch DSDT with maldon auto patcher for this board. Using Graphics enabler= Yes and npci=0x2000. Sleep is just one of this details that just bugs you until you can get it sorted so I'm on a mission to get it figured.

Up Up!
My system hangs during sleep for the second time in a very long time sleep, approximately 6-7 hours.

ECS H61H2-M12. Thanks

      I am a novice in the field of Hackintosh, and this is my first post here.
       
      I have managed to setup and install my hackintosh and it is perfectly working other than this one issue.
      I am unable to figure the exact cause of this issue. My Hackintosh is unable to go into sleep mode after the set time. This is what happens (see the attached video file).

      You can see that the screen turns off, then I see the power on the graphics card and fans turn off.
      Immediately it comes back ON and the screen TURN's ON.
       
      I have followed various threads in several forums trying various options suggested for sleep related issue, but have been un-successful.
      If anyone is able to guide me through in resolving this issue, I would appreciate that.
       
      I am unsure what files need to be attached for you people to help me, feel free to ask and I shall upload the necessary files.

      Hi,
       
      I have High Sierra 10.13.6 installed on a Gigabyte h360m d3h, an i3 8100 processor and a GeForce GTX 760.
       
      I'm having some issues with sleep, shutdown and reboot not working correctly, this is what happens:
      Sleep: the machine restarts
      Shutdown: the OS appears to not be running but the machine is left on
      Restart: the same as shutdown
       
      Everything else (audio, video, usb) appears to be working correctly.
       
      Do you know how can I fix this?
       
      I'm attaching my config.plist and clover bootlog
       
      config.plist
      bootlog.txt

      The display sleep does not work correctly. Starting with Mac 10.12.4, the display sometimes does not wake up. The backlight works, there is no image, a black screen. Currently installed 10.14.1. All the same. If the display is sent to sleep, then sometimes it can wake up in a black screen with a working backlight. From the description, it is not difficult to guess that the display sometimes wakes up correctly and sometimes wakes up in a black screen. In the course of the experiments, I also saw that the display sometimes woke up and showed the boot screen (the Apple logo and progress bar), a second after that the desktop appeared. This behavior occurs only when the display wakes up on a black screen and then I close and open the laptop cover again, after which the boot screen sometimes appears for a second, but sometimes nothing appears, the system just hangs.
      I hope I clearly described the symptoms of the problem.
       
       
      The screenshot was taken after the experiment. I sent the display to sleep, then woke it up. He woke up in a black image with burning lights. Then I closed and opened the laptop bucket, pressed the space bar and waited a few seconds. After a few seconds, the boot screen with the Apple logo appeared and then the desktop appeared. Immediately made a screenshot.

      Hi, my hackintosh won't sleep!
      It often sleeps for 3-5 seconds and auto wakes up.
      sometimes it can't enter the sleep mode even you click the sleep button.
      I have uploaded my DSDT file.
      but I don't know how to patch DSDT.
      If you know how to solve this issue, please help me!
       
      Cheers,
      Brian
