SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS
After you figure out how to get High Sierra 10.13 or 10.13.4 installed to a USB with Clover Bootloader, and you're loaded onto MacOS High Sierra:

Download Clover Configurator and MOUNT your partition and OPEN it to reveal your EFI folder. Delete it.
Simply download the attached ZIP and unzip it by double clicking it. Then copy and paste the EFI folder you unzipped to the location of your mounted partition.

Done. Enjoy. Special thanks to Jake Lo !

Sleep/Wake WHILE THE POWER CORD IS PLUGGED IN (Not from closing the screen down, but from clicking the Apple logo and sleep or by timer).
Wi-Fi (AirPort Extreme) via Broadcom BCM43xx.
2 USB ports on the LEFT side as USB 2.0/3.0 and the 1 USB 2.0/eSATA on the back.
KeyBoard.
TouchPad (With MultiTouch - Fully functional)
iMessage, iCloud, FaceTime, AppStore work perfectly.
NVIDIA Graphics work perfectly thanks to the Lilu and NvidiaGraphicsFixUp kext. THIS FIXES THE BLACK OR BLANK SCREEN PROBLEM.

Bluetooth (Works even with Apple HomePod =] )
Ethernet/RJ-45
2 USBs on right side as USB 2.0/3.0
Native Sound (On board Speakers and can adjust sound with buttons)
SD Card Readers
Adjusting Brightness (Download an app from the AppStore called Brightness Slider -OR- use Night Shift [will not adjust brightness, but will be bearable]).

Because this site only allows 10MB of an upload per file and my zip is over that limit, I am providing direct links.

NOTE - You only need to download ONE of these files, but if you feel the need to have both then why not. You're just causing confusion.

 

This ZIP file is the entire EFI zipped into a nice package. It will completely imitate my High Sierra and cause all of the above to work on your system either with Intel/Nvidia graphics, I am sorry for the AMD GFX holders, I cannot help you. Your search continues. All you must do is delete your entire EFI folder and replace it with mine and restart. Enjoy.

      SleepOnLowBattery (“SOLB”)
      by BugsB, based on a script by Toggi3 * + more code snippets from the www
       
      For those of us whose HackBook/ MacBook does not go to into power saving mode automatically on very low battery but just powers down coldly: “SOLB”, a small and low load footprint AppleScript based utility that checks the battery level every 2 minutes. You can choose between two versions, either with or without sound. Both display a notification in the top right of your screen.
       
      Between ≤10 and >8% battery charge:

       
      Between ≤8 and >5% battery charge:

       
      On ≤ 5% battery charge you will see a 10 seconds countdown dialog box in 1 second intervals:

       

       
      which you can cancel, or have your your *ac*Book be sent to sleep when down to 0.
       
      The version with sound uses the pleasant macOS US female voice Allison. If the lady is not installed, you can download "her" via System Preferences, Accessibility, Speech (pane tab should get opened by the install script), click onto the two arrows to the right of System Voice, Customize, English (Unites States) -- Female, activate Allison, OK (macOS downloads voices to /System/Library/Speech/Voices - Allison consumes 120 MB).
       
      If you want to see/ see and listen first, disconnect your Mac from its power supply and double click the “run Demo” file in either folder, with or without sound.
       
      The launcher is installed per user, so one user can use the script with and another user the script without sound.
       
      Run your desired install.command, with or without sound. The script should be active right away without restart.
       
      Regarding the sound version, you can also:
      - download any other English voice of your liking and edit the name inside the script at the very top
      - download any language voice and translate the text inside the script
      Edit with Apple Script Editor, save, install, reboot.
       
      Tested working in macOS High Sierra 10.13.6, Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina 10.15.1.
      Please feedback if this utility also works for you.
       
      If you have ideas, experience bugs, etc., please contribute as precise, succinct, productive and friendly as possible. In case of a bug, always include your version of macOS for me or others to try and help. Thank you.
       
      ENJOY
       
      VERSION HISTORY:
      2019-11-15 v. 1.1
          •    BUG FIX: changed all occurrences of ExternalChargeCapable to ExternalConnected in all Apple Script .scpt files (SleepOnLowBattery.scpt, SleepOnLowBatterySound.scpt, demo.scpt) to restore functionality
          •    IMPROVEMENT: made queries of MaxCapacity and CurrentCapacity more compatible to work with hopefully any system
          •    NEW: added Catalina compatibility to install scripts; verified Mojave compatibility
          •    NEW: Sound script uses voice Allison if installed, otherwise automatically defaults back to another English standard voice (Daniel, Alex or Fred)
       
      2018-11-10 v.1.0
          •    initial version
       
      IDEAS TO IMPLEMENT IN FUTURE RELEASES:
      Have the sound version install script check if Allison is installed, and if not, offer to download and install it. Purely cosmetic: find a way to have the display notification in the top right of the screen not display the Script Editor icon but the one of the utility without turning the utility into an app but by maintaining a script to keep the load footprint low. This is currently neither possible with an Apple Script nor with an Apple Script Bundle file, only with the script compiled into an app. One possibility might be a Perl approach, if someone volunteers. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      THE CODE (of the version with sound):
      install.command:
       
      LaunchAgent SleepOnLowBatterySound.plist:
       
      Script SleepOnLowBatterySound.scpt:

      Hi All - quick thing - I have a NUC 8i7BEH with 32GB RAM and 2 x 1TB SSD drives. Each drive has its own OS - Windows 10 and Catalina 10.15.
       
      Clover works well - Catalina Boots, so does Windows.
      Catalina - has sound over HDMI (to my monitor's speakers)
      Windows - no audio device found - It does show Realtek and Intel Display Drivers - but the speaker has a red"x" and in Devices, there is no entry for Microphone Array under Audio Input/Output. It does, however, show Intel display over the HDMI - but actually no sound.
       
      I have tried reinstalling Realtek drivers - now here's the thing...when it installs, it first uninstalls existing Realtek drivers - at this stage (and it's important) the sound starts working - as if uninstalling did the trick. As part of the installing, I have to reboot and upon reboot, it actually reinstalls the Realtek drivers. After that, I'm back to square 1. Unsure if it's the config.plist or boot args in clover. But something with Clover for sure.
       
      I have tested this by removing the Mac Drive with clover and just booting directly to Windows 10 bootloader and everything works as it should, I have sound over HDMI and the audio device shows. Just not when I boot with Clover.
       
      has anyone experienced this and have thoughts or pointers.
       
      Thanks a ton!
