    Question BT5 on Macbook Pro 2011 (8,2)

    Howdy, I've recently dual booted my Macbook Pro 2011 (8,2) with BT5 using rEFIt. BT5 is working fine except for a few bugs in the installation that I'm trying to iron out.

    1: If I close my Macbook and allow it to sleep, it will not wake. (Extremely annoying!)

    2: The backlit keyboard is no longer 'backlit'.

    3: The multitouch trackpad is barely functional. (Tap to click, right click (using both two finger and physical 'click') and two finger scroll no longer work).

    4: The resolution is wonky, and the ATI drivers dont fix it. (resolution is 1440x1050 instead of 1680x1050).
    ATI Drivers sourced from [http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...on_linux.aspx]

    I'm not worried about the internal Airport card, because from what I've read around these forums, it either doesn't work or doesnt support injection (therefore no use to me). Besides, I have an Alfa AWUS036H coming in the mail in the next week or so.

    Does anybody know of any solutions or could possibly point me in the right direction for fixing these bugs?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers
