Old ASUS A52F (K52F) laptop: Sleep/Wake Up and Power off problems

I have a problem with "Sleep" and "Shut down..." functions on the macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 which is installed on my old ASUS A52F (K52F) laptop.


When I choose "Sleep" the screen turns off then the HDD turns off after 5 seconds but CPU is not reached power off and main fan continues to work also. As a result, I can not return from sleep. Only hard reboot saves situation. The same situation occurs when I choose "Shut down..." menu item.


I changed the _PTS method in this way in my DSDT:

     Method (_PTS, 1, NotSerialized)  // _PTS: Prepare To Sleep
         PTS (Arg0)

+            Store (Zero, SLPE)
+        }
     Method (_WAK, 1, Serialized)  // _WAK: Wake

And after that my laptop began to go to sleep mode. But unfortunately, after pressing any key, laptop doesn't wake up but is starting up like as after the usual power on or reboot.


Maybe someone knows some methods to solve these problems with sleep and power off? Help me patch my DSDT properly, I am ready for various experiments!
