Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

I have applesmc in /etc/modules, and here's some output (still a little high, right?)
Is applesmc not loaded properly?

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

I installed mbpfan-git which works fine for me.

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

"two fans" in the early retina. (11,1) this thread is about "late" 11,2.

11,1 has many things working like webcam etc. Whilst 11,2 does not.

This is RE MBP 13".

I use fancontrol by applesmc from the kernel works a treat. I used to use mbpfan-git but had problems of it not starting then laptop overheating.

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

I found the issue -- it was the runaway kworker process hogging up 100% of one of my cores. Did the "disable" > /sys/firmware/acpi/interupts/gpeXX trick mentioned earlier in this thread and on the wiki page.

This thread is about Late 2013 rMBPs which include:
- MacBook Pro 11,2 (15" with two fans)
- MacBook Pro 11,3 (15" with two fans)
- MacBook Pro 11,1 (13" with one fan)

11,1 is not early 2013, that's 10,2 and 10,1, see this page for more: https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT201300

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

has anybody being having problems with sleep?

When in mains, if I close the lid it doesn't go to sleep. Also, when on battery when I close lid it goes to sleep but then wakes again. I have to close the lid again.

It's like I have two acpid demons fighting each other. If I disable/stop acpid then the machine won't go to sleep at all.

Yup, also having problems with sleep. Gave up on trying to find a solution. Workaround: sudo pm-suspend. Works like a charm.

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

The disable usb wakeup ability works for me.

I used the systemd-tmpfiles-setup service to disable XHC1 on startup (even though tmpfiles.d shouldn't really be used for /sys or /proc, this seems to work fine for me):

echo "w /proc/acpi/wakeup - - - - XHC1" > /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/disable-usb-wake.conf

Works for me as well. Added both powersave udev rules as well as disabling XHC1.

Seriously, awesome - thanks!

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

Hmm, new problem arose. When the computer resumes from suspend the battery information disappears from /sys/class/power_supply/

Anybody else experience this?

EDIT: Doesn't seem to be a problem with kernel 3.19.3-3...

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

Is it just me, or does the battery life get worse with every kernel update? Seems like it peaked around [3.16|3.17] and has been on a downward slide since. I used to be able to get ~5 hours with my normal workload: a mix of php/js code-dev w/ PHPStorm & Firefox and web-browsing (tunneled through an SSH connection). Now, I'm doing good to get 3 hours. This is with a MBPr 11,2: screen at 40-50% brightness, and all available powersaving options turned on in powertop. Granted, there have been other software updates, as well, but it seems to track with kernel updates.

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

Yup, 4.0 even worse than 3.19. Used to get about 4h30m and now I barely get 4h. Also on 11,2.

Seriously thinking about going back to 3.17 or linux-lts. But I fear the moment when linux-lts will get the same regression.

linux-lts has no thunderbolt hotplugging, right?

Hi. I noticed my battery life was very poor recently (acpi predicts 3-4hr). I looked at the kworker interrupts, and one was really high, I disabled it using this systemd service, and my battery life has significantly improved (acpi predicts 6-7hr), see: [SOLVED] Macbook pro - CPU Temperature.

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

I just upgraded the kernel from 4.0.6-1 to 4.1.3-1, now the resolution on one of my screens is all fucked up. One is plugged in through HDMI (no issues with this one), the other one is plugged in through thunderbolt (with a VGA <-> thunderbolt adapter).
After the upgrade, it looks like the display is stretched although the resolution is correct.

Downgrading hmm

I can confirm that while using the Thunderbolt to VGA adapter, Xorg doesn't seem to detect resolution modes above 1024x768 for my external monitor. All is well with a miniDP to DP cable. My workaround was to add manually new modes with cvt and xrandr, automated by a shell script.

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

Weird problem: if I add the rules from the wiki and I reboot my keyboard is totally unresponsive. At least I think it's the keyboard; tried logging in blindly and playing a sound and nothing. I checked the idVendor and id Product and they aren't related to the keyboard.

Any idea why this happens? Did this happen to someone else too?

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

Hi,

Do you know if it's possible to prevent the pointer of the trackpad from moving when I do a click? It's a little annoying to click and see the cursor moving. I'm using mtrack for my trackpad. I tries a few options but nothing worked for now.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Macbook Pro Late 2013 Retina

Many of the issues you guys face share a similarity with us MBA 2013 6,2 users.  One thing, could be placebo, was mentioned in our thread was to use 'acpi_osi=' you can search in our thread for the reasoning but placebo or not, in combination to other tweaks/fixes (gpe, tlp/powerdown, and powertop) many of us are back to fairly good battery life.  Something to try out at least.
