Yosemite on Toshiba C55 Sleep Mode and Battery Monitor

Yosemite on Toshiba C55 Sleep Mode and Battery Monitor

Toshiba C55-A5195 Laptop, i3-3110M, HM76 "Ivy Bridge" Express Chipset, Intel 4000 graphics, 6gb, 1tb.

After a couple of tries I have been able to get Yosemite Zone installed on this machine.

I will create a write up on the steps I took for get it working fairly well, and the Half-Mini PCI-E WiFi card that I installed, once I am able to sort out the last few issues.

Here is a list of issues that I still have and hope someone can help me solve:
1) Don't care about this, but the two USB 2.0 ports do not work.  The one USB 3.0 port does work and is all I need.
2) Sleep mode does not seem to work when I close the lid (system stays on)
3) The machine will go to sleep if selected, but when woken up the mouse does not work. This is my biggest concern.
4) Unable to adjust sleep times in System Preferences - Energy Saver when Battery tab is selected . 
5) Unable to check "Show battery status in menu bar" in System Preferences - Energy Saver - Battery (tab).
6) Battery status is not working and the only way to know the battery is exhausted is to have the system shut down without notice when the battery it is out of juice.

While typing this I thought perhaps the system has the wrong machine type.
Originally, after installing the Yosemite Zone DVD, "About this Mac" reported that the machine was an "iMac (Summer 2001)".
Using the Cameleon Wizard I created a SMBios.plist file and placed it in the /Extra folder along with the org.cameleon.Boot.plist file.
I selected MacBook Pro 9,2 for i5/i7 Ivy Bridge.  It had another Ivy Bridge option 9,1 but it was for an i7 only and so I thought that was a bad choice as the i7, unlike the i5 and i3, has no on chip video.
Tried 9,2, and 9,1, and even the 8,2 (Sandy Bridge) options but no joy, the system still will not sleep consistently or wake up with a working touchpad if it does.
Left it with 9,2 as that is the closet configuration and it About This Mac now reads "MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012)".

My biggest concern is getting the mouse to work upon wake up from sleep mode.  The rest I can live with, but having to hard reboot after waking up from sleep to make the mouse work is a major pain.

Thank you for any suggestions or insight you may have on how to fix these problems.

Niresh,
Thank you for taking the time to reply to my post.
As you suggested, I added the USBBusFix=Yes to the org.chameleon.Boot.plist file.
Now the two USB 2.0 ports work but the single USB 3.0 is dead, and when i select Apple-Sleep the system appears to black the screen, write to disk, goes to sleep, and then wake up with the screen back... tapping a key wakes it up and the mouse is frozen (trackpad not working) so i hold the power button to bring up the restart menu and press enter).  And it still does not permit me to check the Show Batter Status In Menu bar (click it and a check appears, the battery indicator appears in the menu bar, and then the battery indicator vanishes and the check box becomes unchecked).
Not sleeping is less than ideal but even without it this is a pretty nice machine.  
Of course any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you!

Well it has been a while with no replies so I am giving up on this.

Will try reloading with something other than Hackingtosh.zone.  Not having sleep function or working battery indicator is a pretty fundamental feature.  Won't bother to post my notes in installing Hackingtosh.zone/Yosemite on a Toshiba C55 as they would only result in the same frustrations as I have experienced with this model laptop and I would suggest using something else instead.

Thanks to all that took the time to read this.

Best of luck with your Hackintosh.

Ofter many attempts i solved a lot of erros during the installation, and finnaly i found out that macOs does not suport SSD. I created a patch for my ssds but now, i have this error: ACPI ERROR; and last: AppleNVMe Assert failed;  2 SSD: // Inject bogus class-code for NVMe SSD to prevent IONVMeFamily.kext from loading

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
