ATI Radeon HD 3850 on OSX86 10.5.5 (with sleep)

I finally managed to get my Asus ATI Radeon HD 3850 (EAH3850 Smart OC 1024 MB) to work with OSX86 10.5.5 using the following driver from lastExcile / Netkas (see also forum entry on InsanelyMac). Even sleep and wake-up works perfectly, which didn't work at all with my previous Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 3650 graphics card. The card is very silent and Aperture finally rocks (compared to Geforce 7300 GT 256 MB). Trying now another Asus ATI Radeon HD 3650 on another machine if sleep might work with a different motherboard.

Have you gotten the 3650 to wake from sleep in 10.5.6?

I only tested the 3850 with 10.5.6 and that works very well with sleep & wake. The older 3650 I had, never worked with sleep & wake on 10.5.5. So I guess the update might not change much, but like I said, I haven't tried the 3650 with 10.5.6.
