Sleep E5540

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

 

When i want my Dell E5540 with Sierra 10.12.5 to go to sleep, it goes to sleep but immediately afterwards turn on again and then turns off again and turns on again and that continues until i press the space bar and the desktop appears again...

 

Is there a way to solve this?

Have you tried this?

 

11. Make sure to disable hibernation as it's a prerequisite to get sleep & wake to work Ok on a Hackintosh:

  • sudo pmset hibernatemode 0
  • sudo rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage
  • sudo pmset hibernatefile /dev/null

it takes about 30 seconds before the power light turns off, immediately after that powerlight turns on again, then you hear the CD player make a sound and the powerlight turns off again, this happens a couple of times. until the laptop stays on.
