Private First Class (3/17)



  1. Thanks for that info. It was starting to seem like it was "heat" related, even though it would crash even when temps (shown via temperature monitor lite) were only in the 70's. Although the unit did feel hot which appeared mainly to be from the memory chips (2x2GB). ?? I checked the fan and it's clear. I've stopped using it for now. Going to try an installation ML later in the year.
  2. I'm interested where this leads as I have the same issue on my Dell D630 Intel 1440x900 OSX 10.7.5 system. It randomly crashes (ie. KP). Seems to do it after I've been using the system for a couple hours.
  3. I enabled the USB-Wake in the Bios, did a repair permissions via Disk Utility and no luck. As soon as I put the system into sleep it wakes up. My D630 must be "special".
  4. I believe mine is T9500 and it works fantastic!
  5. I have one and it works fantastic! I can leave my mouse plugged in, close the lid and when I resume the next day the mouse has power. When coming out of sleep and when not using a dock, the mouse has to be unplugged and plugged in again for the system to recognize it. I haven't tested the video though.
  6. I'd like to offer my 2 cents with my regards to OSX 10.7.4 on my Intel D630... I had to set the timed sleep to "never" for sleep to work at all (otherwise BIOS reset issue). I didn't need a bios/system password of for sleep to resume properly. Close lid or initiation of sleep via menu or power button works every time. By using a Dell dock it allows all plugged-in USB devices to wake when the system is resumed from sleep (obviously only good when it's plugged in). Enabling the USB-Wake-Support in the BIOS makes it so the system never sleeps, so I had to turn it off. Hope this helps.
  7. Also, is there a way to get trackpad prefs pane back in system prefs?
  8. So, this morning I reran EDP and set PS2 to #2 and Audio to #2 with the rest of the options as same as the predefined. Also, and I think this might be related, is that I turned off sleep in the Energy Prefs pane. I closed the lid and went to work. Came back and was prompted with login to OSX. Saweet!!! Not sure what I did to make it work. But sleep seems to be ok, with the one exception that I had to turn off auto sleep. The only issue is that my usb mouse does not work after it resumes. Almost there. Any ideas / thoughts on all this?
  9. Yes I did. I'll redo the config tonight, do the hibernation fix and then touch S/L/E and then test from there.
  10. Oh, I forgot to add that I've also run the Option 2 in Fixes to disable hibernation. Doesn't seem to anything.
  11. Update: So I decided to redo the installation but using EDP 3.0 this time. I installed Lion via the MyHack USB installation method. Added support for my wifi card and then installed and ran EDP 3.0. I only have one issue remaining now... Sleep. Again. "Short term sleep", as I like to refer to it, works great. What I mean by this is, if I close the load or hit Fn-Esc to put the D630 to sleep and then resume in under a minute or so, the system resumes without issue. Works great. However, if I do the same but let it sit in sleep mode for, let's say, 10 mins or so. After opening the lid or hitting power button (if I've done a Fn-Esc) the system appears to resume, but immediately powers off. Then I have the dreaded BIOS reset issue upon power up. I've tried the "preset" configuration from EDP as well as trying different ones as well. I even setup a BIOS System Password and set the password bypass on. Nothing seems to fix it. Anyone have any ideas. My D630 specs are in the OP. Thanks!
  12. Oh forgot to ask; from which EDP? 2.2 or 3.0. I didn't use an EDP which mush mean I'm using the one from the USB install disk which is from the "http://www.osxlatitude.com/packs/Dell/Dell_Latitude_D630-intel2-lion.zip" bootpack as far as I can tell.
  13. Ok. I can do that. Do I also need to install a specific sleepenabler.kext?
  14. Well, at least I have the right one. But it doesn't work / prevent the Bios resetting itself when I put the laptop to sleep. Should I copy it to S/L/E and then do fix permissions, rebuild kext from Kext Wizard as opposed to using myFix?
