    Hi,

    i have read many things about a bug in Lion, that you have some problems after sleep with the ATI Cards.

    My ORIGINAL 5770 drops in performance after sleep (Cinebench from 31fps to 16fps). If i make a restart every things is just fine.

    I have done all things possible. Do a clean (only System and Cinebench) install, delete PRAM, SMC, repair permissions ... my problems is always the same like before.

    A friend of me has got the same configuration and he doesn´t have these problems :(

    I have take a look to the ML Preview and of course there is the same problem. In some hackintosh Forums there are a workaround to change the ModelID but this is not an option with my original Mac Pro.

    Any hints for me?

    this also affects the 5870, its been a lion bug since 10.7

    one of the main reasons i stopped playing games on osx steam and when to bootcamp instead

    It is not only in Gaming, it is also at Aperture. The Problem is also in ML for the Mac Pro 3,1 (not for the newest iMacs) :(

    So the sleep is not useful for me.

    I feel confirmed having stayed with Snow Leopard on my 1,1 - no problems with my 6870 there. :rolleyes:

    You could either switch to a PC 6870 as well or make your boot disk a SSD, so the restart does not take long and your problem is mitigated.

    It's shocking to think Apple has left such a bug for their Pro lineup.

    does anyone know if mp4,1and mp5,1 are affected by this bug?

    could be why they excluded the mp3,1 from the ati5xxx support list

    which is a bummer

    Which should tell you a great deal about where their head is regarding their "pro" lineup.

    It would have been shocking a couple years ago. Now, not so much.....

    Which kext i can use from SL? I think till 10.6.4 there are drivers for the 5770?

    Can anyone send me the next? I think i will need three pieces. I have only found the kext from 10.6.2 (with no 5770 kext).

    Many thanks

    It is really creepy from Apple. That won´t be a hardware issue, so if they WANT they can fix it also for Mac Pro 3,1. But they DON´T WANT! I am Appleuser since over 15 years but at this time i think i will change from my whole Applepark at home (Mac Pro, AppleTV, 2 iPhones, 3 iPods, MBAir) to PC and Android :(

    Please Mr. Cook feel free to help me :)

    He's busy "doubling down on secrecy". But if you'd like to wait until he's done putting the word "new" on 2010 technology...

    It would be nice if someone with a 2009 or 2010 mac pro could chime in and tell us if they have graphics after sleep problem. If they don't then its safe to say all mp3,1 owners with 5xxx ati cards are SOL

    Same Issues with these kext from SL:

    I give up and sell the card at ebay and buy me a 4870 :(

    I'm on a 3,1 with 5770 but I got 31,5 fps after sleep

    Is that normal? I don't think I'm affected

    I think there is the Problem for me. I have done a clean Install with Lion. I have heard many times, that my Problem has not everybody ...

    Its so AARGH !

    I have installed 10.6.8 on another disc in my Mac and with SL i haven´t got this issue.

    In german it says " For now, i am finished with my latin" :)

    Yeah, that solves the Problem ... but it is very poor for Apple to do such things to Mac Pro Users :( The iMac gets an Update, but the 3,1 is too old ... :(
