dGPU on Dual GPU Laptop Wake

(Computer Model: Acer PH-315-53-72XD)
(dGPU: RTX 2060 Mobile)

Hi, as the title says the computer I am trying to patch has been having some issues regarding dGPU and wake. This laptop refuses to keep the dGPU off after wake, and it consumes more than twice the power it did when it was disabled.

The OpenCore ACPI Guide suggests one of 2 methods to disable your dGPU on a laptop; one of them is the Optimus, which essentially is what most laptops use. Then there's the Bumblebee method. More information over at

I've tried both of those methods and both work perfectly fine. But according to Intel Power Gadget, power readings are higher when the laptop is woken from sleep.
(Before Sleep: 0.80 Average, 2 Hours and 57 Minutes of Charge Remaining)
(After Sleep: 12-15.3 Average, 42 Minutes of Charge Remaining)
The OpenCore ACPI Guide on disabling dGPU on Dual GPU Laptops links to a thread which is 7 years old documented by RehabMan. This guide is very detailed and goes over many of the steps, but it is complicated and I couldn't comprehend it.
I am aware of SSDT-PTSWAK, but it didn't appear to work in my case, maybe I did it wrong.
Are there any modern solutions to this that are easy for everyone to do? If so, please comment down below and any help would be really appreciated.

(Please read thoroughly, as everything I've tried and done has been documented above to avoid unhelpful replies.)

Bluetooth Mouse / BT auto connect

Is it me or does Mac OS generally have an issue auto connecting to anything Bluetooth that is not an Apple product?!

I have the MX Master 3 mouse and without a wired mouse I cannot really go in and connect to this.

Is there a setting to change or perhaps a script I can write to make this happen or is this a Hackintosh issue?! I’ve seen these issues outside of Hackintosh on the internet, but figured it could’ve been a case by case basis

GPU options for Hackintosh?

Hi, i'm planning on building a Hackintosh in the next few months and I was wondering what my options are for GPU's? I've tried looking this up but it seems opinions seem to vary. I'll be using this machine for Logic Pro X and some light video editing as well as casual games like Minecraft. Gaming performance is really not a big deal to me so I don't want to buy something like a GeForce and go through the process of installing drivers. I also don't want to spend more than $200. Basically I would need something just good enough. I am currently daily driving a Macbook Pro 2015 15 inch which has an AMD Radeon R9 and I am more than happy with performance on there so take that as a reference. Any help appreciated!

How to get started with MacOS Ventura

Hello, so I’m extremely new to mackintosh and had no idea there was a community who actively created them in different machine, I have seen some Ventura action going on but I would like to sail the same boat as they are but I have no clue to how to get started, I know about the get started thing on top but I wanted to know if the set up of the different os version is different or the same, I haven’t seen much about it so knowing how this works would be an amazing help. Thank you in advanced to all who helped me!

[Question] Anyone else have problems getting signal when two monitors are plugged in at boot?

Alright. I Hackintoshed. I use the Nvidia Web Drivers on High Sierra. I’ve noticed a strange issue where if I have both of my monitors plugged in during boot, it’ll send no signal when the Apple logo is supposed to appear. When I remove one monitor suddenly it shows it and login fine. Any other Nvidia mains get this problem?

Opencore i7 3770 (Ivy Bridge)

Hello! I just bought a PC with the only purpose of turning it into a Hackintosh Monterey and, guess what, it's my first time. Well, let's begin. First of all, my build:

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 which is Ivy Bridge

GPU: I plan to use the my GPU because there's no display port in my motherboard so it would be RogStrix GTX 1060 6gb OC. I know that my GPU is not supported since high sierra, can I use it for the purpose of display only?

RAM: HyperX Fury 2x8gb located in the 2 slots next to the CPU

Motherboard/Desktop model: Asus Sabertooth P67

Bios Brand: American Megatrends Inc.

Ethernet Card: Realtek 8821CU, but I plan to use a Wireless USB Card

What files/config I am using:

I started following the guide and all went well during the preparation of the USB drive and boot the USB and I'm stuck at at the end reports a common " [EB|#LOG:EXITBS:START] " error. See the picture in this error

When I'm checking in the dortania's guide there's a guide for troubleshooting in [EB|#LOG:EXITBS:START] and I see about this section.

If your firmware supports MATs:

Enable both RebuildAppleMemoryMap
and SyncRuntimePermissions
then disable EnableWriteUnprotector.

Actually it says that MAT is supported only in newer firmwares but I assumes that I do have MAT so I changed it.

Again after I boot the USB I'm just pass in the error but there's another error which is stuck in this " ** In Memory Panic Stackshot Succeedd ** ". See the picture in this error

I don't know now to fix this error. I'm stuck this for almost a 2 weeks

Here's my EFI and Log file that uploaded to my drive. I already shared to public so that everyone can access.

Can a computer with dual GPU for Mac and Windows have issues with overheat or performance?

I am going to buy a new computer in the next 4 months and i wanted to try to make a dual boot with Windows 10 or 11 for gaming and Mac OS Big Sur for programming.

One of the options i thought about was to get a Ryzen 5950x, 32gb of ram, 2tb SSD m2 with a 3080ti and a cheaper 200 euros AMD GPU compatible with Big Sur as i don't want to get an AMD card for gaming. (I don't name brands or concrete products on the ram, SSDs, motherboard, etc because i don't know which one i should get or i will get).

The thing is that with hardware i am really noob and i am worried of the possibility of this causing any issues of overheat, performance or any of this nature.

Is there a risk about anything of this? Should i worry?

And do you guys have any recomendations on the rest of components for what i want to do? Like maybe the motherboard or anything else.

Thx in advance! <3 <3 <3
