I can't seem to wake from sleep. Every time I turn the computer back on it halts and turns off, and when I turn it back on the BIOS settings are reset. I'm using the D630 with X3100 1440x900 on 10.8.4. I've run EDP and myHack (in that order). The computer also can shut down on its own but cannot restart without hanging at a white screen, therefore I have to force it off.


Thanks in advance!

Try the following things:

  • ensure you have BIOS A17 or A18
  • check your BIOS parameters and make sure they're set as per recommended settings in the pinned thread

You say you've run EDP (I presume you meant doing a System Build) followed by myHack. What was the rationale behind that?
Can you list the kexts you have in /Extra/Extensions?
When you run EDP to do the System Build, you can actually modify the default settings as follows:

  • in Kext/Drivers tab, set everything to OFF (that will get rid of nullCPUPowerManagement, SleepEnabler and Emulated SpeedStep)
  • in Fixes tab, turn patched IOATAFamily to OFF (not necessary on D630)

Then follow the instructions to enable native SpeedStep detailed here. Alternatively, use the files attached below, placing FakeSMC in /Extra/Extensions, SMBIOS.plist in /Extra and HWMonitor in Applications folder and re-run myFix to properly install the kext.
FakeSMC_5.2.678_32-64bit.zip smbios.plist.zip HWMonitor_5.2.678.zip
With MLPF, the kext cache generation can be problematic, so check what you have in /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup. If you see no kextcache file, use the following Terminal command to try and generate it: sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel.
Regarding sleep, use Terminal command sudo pmset -g to check hibernation. If hibernate mode is set to 3 (or any non-zero value), use sudo pmset hibernatemode=0 to turn it off. That usually fixes sleep.


Only reboot once you've done all this, then verify those troublesome items.

You are a god!


Ok extensions are




FakeSMC (yours)





Not sure exactly what fixed my sleep, but it works now. I was already running BIOS A17 with the recommended settings.


I could never get the kextcache to generate, it seemed to have issues with IntelCPUMonitor.kext - no dependency found for org.netkas.FakeSMC. 


Thanks again!

Glad to see it's all working.


IntelCPUMonitor kext works with earlier release of FakeSMC such as v4.0. It's not required with newer versions published by Kozlek and in fact, clashes with them.


I don't know what your IntelCPUController kext does. I don't have that on any of my D series laptops.

Gave me a kernal panic, so I reinstalled everything back to the way it was and it seems fine. IntelCPUMonitor.kext is still in /Extra so I probably won't remove it this time, though generating a kextcache still throws the same error.
