Possible to disable wifi sleep if monitor goes black?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I would like to keep wifi connection, if the monitor goes black from power saving. More exact, I would like to have a timeout for monitor saving only, and a longer timeout for complete power sleep. Is this possible?

 

Maybe by using "pmset" command?

The Energy Saver PrefPane supports this.

But Apple charged this for Haswell platforms and applied a unified Energy Saver setup for Haswell-based Macs. Haswell platforms therefore require to modify the selected Mac model platform plist file to distinguish Display Sleep and Computer Sleep.

Still, you can fairly easily revert to the traditional PrefPane. I can't remember where I got the details from (possibly MacRumors) but I've described the necessary mod here for my Dell Latitude E6440:

This mod would apply to your Asus B85M-G if that's what your inquiry relates to. Do it according to your own selected SMBIOS/Mac model.

That's plain old Display Sleep and it's still there. Need a user manual?

 

Try this: In Desktop & Screen Saver PrefPane, set your ScreenSaver to, say, 30 mins and, in Hot Corners, set Display Sleep to the bottom left corner. Then move your mouse pointer to the bottom left corner. You'll see.

Jesus... What do you think the Energy Saver PrefPane does? Did you read post #2???

 

Good luck.

 

I am not jesus, gsus. No, seriously, your post was referring to a smbios.plist, which does not exist in clover config anymore. I will put that switch ("UnifiedSleepSliderPref = true") then into clover smbios bios section and see :)

 

Also found these values:

      <key>UnifiedSleepSliderPref</key>
      <true/>
      <key>enabler</key>
      <true/>
      <key>AGPM</key>
      <true/>
      <key>ASPM</key>
      <true/>
      <key>PublishBatteryFactors</key>
      <true/>
      <key>NetworkTimerDelay</key>
      <integer>900</integer>
      <key>StandbyDelay</key>
      <integer>10800</integer>
      <key>ErPDelay</key>
      <integer>28800</integer>
      <key>AutoPowerOff</key>
      <true/>
      <key>NetworkTimerDelay</key>
      <integer>900</integer>
      <key>StandbyDelay</key>
      <integer>10800</integer>
      <key>ErPDelay</key>
      <integer>28800</integer>
      <key>CPUFloor</key>
      <integer>800</integer>
      <key>Frequencies</key>
      <dict>
        <key>2700</key>
        <integer>0</integer>
        <key>3200</key>
        <integer>1</integer>
      </dict>
 

  

Very interesting! Esp. AGPM true / false :)

Oh man, don't start to be a drinker now!   Wow, it works!   Also I disabled AGPM and ASPM and feel like a hacker now!

 

EDIT: Hm, but it doesn't seem to influence nvidia web driver speed. Must check that under High Sierra once...  AGPM also still is loaded...?

 

Also in GFX0 in ioreg there still is "pci-aspm-default = 3" (just like before), so ASPM=false does not seem to have any effect.

 

Thx, that double sleep timeout settings for monitor/computer are nice.
