Resolving the Dell Mini OSX 10.5.8 update

There are two main issues I had with the 10.5.8 update:

1. The Battery showed that it was on Power even when it was not connected

2. Sleep stopped working

I wasn’t to worried about the first issue, and did not want to waste time resolving it so I just installed slim battery (which shows the correct status) and removed the Apple Battery update from the menu bar (hold down the command key (ALT) and  drag it from the menu bar).

Sleep was more of a problem, and the way I solved this was by using Kext helper and installing this Kext file (I didn’t seem to need the patch file that is also with this). Also I had legacy USB devices disabled in the BIOS.

After this sleep worked fine.
