Sleep issue

Recommended Posts


I'm experiencing issues in getting sleep to work.

I've been looking into the logs and found this:

2019-07-05 12:22:33.157845+0200 localhost kernel[0]: (AppleACPIPlatform) System sleep prevented by pci8086,a2bd

2019-07-05 12:22:33.157847+0200 localhost kernel[0]: (AppleACPIPlatform) System sleep prevented by pci8086,a2bd

When i look into the PCI list in hackintool:

IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/[email protected]/AppleACPIPCI/pci8086,[email protected],3


It's suppossed to be an Communications Controller /Serial Controller - I'm wondering if it's the internal Intel Wifi/Bluetooth card?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

[ref]MaLd0n[/ref], It worked...! Thanks alot m8! I have another model at work doing exact the same problem! Can you tell what was wrong by any chance?

And can i do the USB SSDT and Configure Audio Layout in Hackintool now or will it brake everything again? Or was the fix in ACPI section?

Added in 11 minutes 10 seconds:


Ohh i see all the PCI, and the USB are done already!..

Is there a tool that can do these DSDT automatically?? Or can you point me somewhere on the site to a guide on how to do an DSDT?

Okay i can respect that!, can i upload another run-me from an Q270 chipset in this thread tomorrow that you can patch for me or should i use the DSDT patch request thread?

Is there a thread where there is an tutorial for doing the DSDT patching my self in the future, im eager to learn how??

Thanks [ref]MaLd0n[/ref], everything is working besides sleep :(

It goes to sleep but wakes again after 2 seconds, with black screens, i can only get it working again after i shut it down.

I have switched off Wake for Ethernet access in Energy Settings and checked the power settings with Hackintool yet still no luck :-/

When i have shut it down it freezes when the Apple logo appears, then it stays there for like 5 seconds then reboots itself and it goes in cycles, i fixed this by removing one of my 2 monitors and reconnect when it has boot into Mojave.

Do you think it's something you know the fix to?

[ref]MaLd0n[/ref], wow the latest DSDT bunked it totally... Sleep not fixed same as before, goes to sleep and wakes with black screens after 2 seconds and the mac dies. But now i can't run dual monitors either. i can only boot with one screen and when i connect the other screen both screens go black. If i boot with both screens connected it freezes at the Apple logo for 5 second then reboots and this goes on forever.


I tested to revert all the way back to the first EFI zip you sent me, now when i boot it also boots with both monitors.. [ref]MaLd0n[/ref], what is the difference between the DSDT from the original first EFI.zip you sent to Pandora-mac-mini and the modified DSDT.aml.zip file you sent me, other than regarding sleep? The only difference i can see is that the startup drive is External in the first package and Internal in the second DSDT?

*update 2*

I got it to boot with the second & latest DSDT you sent me, but only with 1 monitor connected, when i connect the second monitor both screens instantly go black, and even when i disconnect the second monitor i cant get it running again unless i reboot with one monitor connected. When i boot with both monitors it still goes as far as to the Apple logo the freezes for like 5 seconds then reboots (goes on in cycle until i turn off power). It's weird cause the original DSDT from you first EFI.zip works with booting both monitors but then my startup drive looks like and external drive! Can you please fix it m8? It would be nice with sleep but if it's at the expense of these other problems i'd rather skip it.

I attached a new run_me file with the latest DSDT you sent me!

Send me Pandora-Mac-mini.zip

Sleep doesn't work, goes in and out of hibernation all the time, nor does bluetooth because of error in config.plist, kext ?

Bluetooth works in Mojave. Incredibly slow boot during startup again error in config.plist, kext ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Send me with your config2.plist booted.

use Olarila clover folder for ur chipset


Hi Daniel,

Your DSDT patches that tells the kernel to ignore my laptop BIOS-supplied table are really good!

How did you make mine without me sending you an F4 dump with native files to EFI / Clover / ACPI / origin ?

Is it enough with those who are generated by "Send me" ?

Most of my hardware works fine in Catalina now :), bluetooth too thanks to headkaze

Have 1 question about brightness control :

Installed acpi support base (0.142-8) acpid (1: 2.0.28-1 + b1) on my Debian 9 partition with apt install acpid -y

Then ran acpi_listen in terminal:

fn + down arrow key = video / brightness BRTDN 00000087 00000000 K

fn + up arrow key = video / brightness BRTUP 00000086 00000000 K

Downloaded RehabMan´s AppleBacklightFixup and made a patch for DSDT :


into method label BRTN replace_content
       // Brightness Down\n
           If ((0x87 == Arg0))
               Notify (\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.PS2K, 0x0405)
       // Brightness Up\n
           If ((0x86 == Arg0))
               Notify (\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.PS2K, 0x0406)

My CLOVER originated from CATALINA Olarila

Brightness Controll works with the arrow keys as planned, but suddenly my keyboard stops working and I have to restart to correct it.

This only happens when I adjust brightness after a while with the arrow keys, what can this be ?

Have I loaded some wrong kext's or can you see if something is obviously wrong in what I've listed above ?
