If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

Thanks! Amazing you spotted that, that was quite buried in there. I will give this a try hopefully this week, slowly guttering my device tree, starting with some likely culprits. Let's hope we get a happy Mac and no bricked Mac. 8)

@Jubadub did you have any luck with this? I ended up coming back to this a few weeks ago to see if I could disable some devices to allow sleep. I didn't get very far, when trying to disable a lot of the devices OFW would tell me that the devices don't actually exist.

I didn't look into it, in the end. I had one of those "Mac breaks", so to speak. Honestly, I don't see myself coming back to this anytime soon.

But if someone jumped between us right now, and said "oh hey guys, I got it boot!!!", I would INSTANTLY follow all the steps. :D
