it always hangs after like 5 mins during idle. Sound didn't work, VGA is only 1024x768 and its a 15.4 screen, wireless not working. I installed it 3 times the 2nd install took forever and I noticed it already hanged.

Try turning off or changing the screensaver try using a non animated one


Also go into System Preferences and click Energy Saver and adjust all the settings to never


ACPI is not working 100% as it was writen for Mac laptops


Also when you close the lid on your laptop it will crash there is a workaround for this using a program called Sleepless 2.1
