    Apple Keynote September 12

    We are awaiting in excitement the new fall Apple Keynote event.
    Some of our users are speculating to see a few new items which might include:
    New iPhone X New Macmini New Macbooks - A more "accessible" version.  
    Update!
    Well, in this Keynote we have more news about "mobile" devices, about Desktops/Notebooks, unfortunately not this time...
     
    And you? What do you want to see at the next Keynote? Share with us 😉

    • Hi,   I managed to install Catalina on E5430, but I am facing a strange problem. If I try to put my laptop to sleep on battery power supply, everything works fine. But if I try to put my laptop to sleep with AC power supply attached, it prepares for sleep, I think it enter the sleep but then it wakes again in a second. Display stay black, but according to less, it is not sleeping. Anyone can try to help me with it please?

    • Latest release already have that implemented. https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleALC/releases/tag/1.4.3
    • In a post dated Oct 17, 2019 from a guy called Taeyon at a forum not allowed here. I can send you the link by PM. He said: "[...] AppleALC 1.4.3 has a fix (workaround actually to disable HDMI/DP audio to avoid the kernel panic), but there isn't a release yet. So I have built it manually with the HDMI/DP audio being disabled always. For this, please find the attached kext. In my case, this has addressed the kernel panic problem. FYI, I have attached the code changes I have made based on the 1.4.3 code base. Also, I am asking the AppleALC maintainer to use a boot argument so that it'd be easier to use it."   and attached the following 2 x files: AppleALC.kext.zip AppleALC_fix.diff.txt.zip  
    • I have E7240 (DW1550 for wifi and BT) running Catalina 10.15.1 (19B88) with Clover r.5093 and I don't have any issues. I have attached my bootpack. Please make sure to shuffle the serial number in the config.plist with Clover Configurator.   I hope it helps you and anyone else who is trying to install Catalina on E7240 laptops.   E7240+DW1550.zip
