I confirm @rjl6789 comment. The issue disappeared with 4.16.X version and is now back on 4.17.0-1 :(

As with @deimosfr I'm having the issue where I need to push the power button to wake it up after a lid close. Macbook 11.2, linux macbook=4.17.0-1-macbook. Enabled + Disabled macbook-wakeup service and also implemented service modules as per mac arch wiki, power management, referenced forum post ( ). This issue doesn't present itself with linux or linux-lts

Hey everyone, sorry about the lack of updates as of recent. The stable release schedule got super aggressive within the past six months, so it's been a challenge to keep on top it; on a related note some of the diffs weren't cleanly applying and the last thing I want to do is push out a package that uses a fudge factor for patching kernel code.

The latest kernel version apparently finally brought the gmux/backlight code into the official tree. I tested it on my MacBook Air and was able to dial down my brightness using the native GNOME hotkeys. All that's left is the suspend/poweroff patches, so I reverted my last attempt at consolidating all the patches since the latest changes I made appeared to cause issues for some people.

Post here if something isn't working, but equally as important please post if everything is working great -- the more feedback you can give the better the chances the rest of these patches can finally be merged into mainline.

Thanks again for your patience!

@m3thodic I am unable to download the linux-macbook-headers package from your repository (it attempts but fails because no data is received in time). The linux-macbook package, however, is fine. Is the repo not supposed to supply the headers package?

Figured it out for those with the same question / problem. I can get the GPU switch to work from Intel back to the AMD GPU by reversing the Command that shuts off the AMD GPU while on Intel video-

from - echo OFF > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch (on Intel video)

to - echo ON > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch

then run your gpu-switch -d command


This has worked fro me so far.

Running this kernel on a MBPr 11,5 - AMD GPU AND INTEL video. I am having issues swithing from the Intel video back to the AMD GPU. I use the gpu-switch -d command just prior to reboot. My refind.conf is set up correct as well. When I reboot, I get a black screen and I have to then login to the terminal to delete the 20-intel.conf file to get it to boot back with the AMD GPU. Any help is appreciated.

Here is the gist:

It's a MacBookPro11,5.

@deimosfr what version of Macbook do you have? It would be helpful if you could run dmidecode with sudo or as root and post the output to a gist.

Hi, with 4.15.4-1, when the lid I need to push the power button to wake it up. I didn't have this behavior in previous version, I mean it automatically waked up when I opened the lid. Is there any fix for it ? By the way, I enabled macbook-wakeup.service. Thanks
