I'm also having the same exact sleep issue as others here. Fresh install from a retail disc with 0.8.4 rc1. 32GB Stock ssd, 2GB, BT, webcam, no other items installed.

Any ideas?

Mine is working now.
Turned off USB Legacy Support and ran the sudo pmset command.
I am running 10.6, which I installed earlier today.
I don't have enough free space to install the 10.6.3 update.

Default 10.6 ok 10.6.3 ng - 04-28-2010, 11:31 AM

3 Points.

I have the Dell 32 GB SSD
I have a Mini 9 NOT a 10v
Legacy is always OFF and pmset hibernation is always 0.

Erased and formatted the SSD.
Retail install 10.6 with Netbook bootmaker 8.4 RC1
Everything works, Camera, Network, WIFI, Bluetooth, speaker, and sleep.

10.6.3 and sleep no longer functions.

I am out of ideas except maybe the next release of Netbook installer

Default Solved my sleep problems with 10.6.3 on Dell Mini 9. Thanks! - 04-29-2010, 10:32 PM

Thanks again. After days of searching, this finally solved my slepp problems with a dell mini 9 and SL 10.6.3. Much obliged!

Open Terminal and type pmset -g

If hibernatemode has a value of 3, that means hibernation is enabled. NetbookInstaller 0.8.4 RC1 doesn't seem to properly disable it.

To disable hibernation, type sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0. You'll be asked for your master password. The "-a" parameter tells your mac to disable hibernation on battery and plugin power.

For more information on the pmset command: pmset(1) Mac OS X Manual Page

There's also the issue of BIOS settings. I currently have bluetooth and usb wake disabled and USB legacy enabled. I will continue testing different BIOS settings for any changes.

Update 1: I have confirmed that enabling bluetooth while usb wake is disabled and usb legacy is enabled breaks sleep

Update 2: I kept BT disabled but enabled usb wake and disabled usb legacy. Sleep continues to work.

Update 3: Ok, the correct BIOS setting is this: USB Legacy must be disabled. This is not surprising, as previous versions of OS X on my mini 9 required the same setting. However, the difference this time is that NetbookInstaller .0.8.4 RC1 does not properly disable hibernation, or so I believe.

To recap the steps I took to fix no wake from sleep:
Disable hibernation - Open Terminal and type "sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0"
Disable USB Legacy in your BIOS settings

I still have Sleep problems. Hibernate mode is set to 0, Legacy is Off...

When I wake from sleep, the Airport kicks back in, but I get a few spurious items at bottom of drop-down when I click on the Airport icon;

It says;
kAirPortOtherKey
kAirPortCreateNetworkKey
kAirPortOpenNetworkPrefsKey

After waking from sleep, if I have Safari open, I can use it for a while.... until I open a new tab etc. or try to run something else... it then hangs....
If I press the Power button, nothing happens...

Apart from sleep, I have everything else working fine.

Mini9, 2Gb, 8Gb SSD, 16Gb SDHC, SL 10.6.3, SOund fix without Voodoo, Bluetooth Mod, NBI 0.8.4

exactly same problem here.

tried every possible combination of bios settings: no work.

regenerated dsdt again: no work

Hibernation is turned off, USB Legacy is off

thinking we've got to roll back to 10.6.2 or wait for the brand new NBI or something.

Yesterday I decided to really go after some of the issues with my mini running 10.6.3. By turning off USB Legacy support and Bluetooth (which I don't have) and CD, I did get sleep to work for a short while, and then while trying to fix the problem I have with using a projector and I got the black screen of death that would return on start up.

I started over and loaded only up to 10.6.2 and new everything is working right. Sleep works, Using a projector works. Life is good.

I seem to have gotten sleep to work.

I turned of hibernation by typing
Quote:
sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0
in terminal

Then is the BIOS (A03) I have:
USB Legacy Support: Disabled
USB Wake Support: Disabled

After I open the Mini a little static comes from the speakers and the WiFi searches and the Bluetooth is disabled for a second. But then everything gets straightened out in a couple seconds and it works completely.

I just reverted back to 10.6.2, everything just works perfectly now. I don't suggest anyone install 10.6.3 ATM.
