    I have a macbook 5.1 running smoothly on debian wheezy, with GPU acceleration cuda and everything.never had a problem under Linux.
    Though the problem is that I'm running Linux because I couldn't have os x to run.
    Os x boots then goes to sleep, installed on different disks different versions even booting from the installation disk itself gives the same results. Tried configuring os x on a different Mac(no way to boot it from this one): pmset -a SMS 0 && pmset -a hibernatemode 0; still sleeps on boot (suspected faulty SMS). Off course reset smc pram. Don't think it's the inverter (running without a glitch on Debian).
    Verbous mode on boot in is x complains about SMC
    kernel: SMC::smcHandleInterruptEvent WARNING status=0x0
    Previous sleep cause : -128.
    Looks hardware related, but if that is the case what is it exactly and why is Linux not complaining about it.
    Anyone with a suggestion is welcome, similar experience a fix a way to overpass...anything :)
    Thanks for reading

    Try to remove the battery. I have a similar issue and the laptop works fine and doesn't go to sleep when connected directly to the charger with no battery.

    I wonder if anyone has a solution to flash a fresh smc on a macbook (e.i 5.1) without the use of Os X, if it can be done booting linux for example or a bootable disk.
    As mentioned in my first post can't boot Os X regardless of the verst ion or medium. but I can boot it in single user mode.
