    Re: Carputer 101

    I just finished my carputer for all you loyal subscribers to this thread, here's my writeup :
    http://s87301718.onlinehome.us/carputer/carpc.html

    Since it gets extremely cold here in the winters I decided to leave the computer wired to the ignition and not the remote start. That way I can remote start the car and by the time I get out there its warmed up enough that the HDD isn't frozen and the computer will actually boot when I turn the key. I just leave the computer in hibernate, I dont actually turn it completely on or off, so it boots pretty quick anyway.

    Big thanks to megalomaniac, he helped me a lot early on in the process.

    Re: Carputer 101

    Same thing happened to me actually. I use hibernate though and not standby, I just wanted to test standby to see if it was any faster and I could get it to work. Wasn't a big deal that it didn't work so I just kind of stopped trying, don't know why though...

    Also if by standby you meant hibernate, it won't work until you have enabled hibernation. The checkbox is under the hibernation tab of the power options.

    No standby is not the same as hibernate. When you hibernate, everthing that is on ram is written to the hard drive and the computer is shut off. When you resume it will reload the data from the hard drive to ram. The load time will depend on the ram size.
    with standby everything is kept on ram. Everything is turned off except the ram continues to receive power. So when you turn the computer back on the resume time is 100x faster.

    I come back from standby within a second.

    Yes I'm a member but I don't post. Haven't gone to any meets.


    I hibernate, too. Standby just never worked.

    Where in NY are you? Last winter was the first winter for my carpc and I never had problems with the cold, save the touchscreen and a dull picture for a few minutes.

    how much power does the computer use while in standby? i'd hate to have dead batteries everyday.

    Re: Carputer 101

    First of all DragonClub I know the difference between the two, I just thought the person whom I was posting that in response to might have gotten them mixed up. Did you read my post? Anwway, .:uD3::., standby uses much more power than hibernate. I don't recommend using standby in a carpc unless you drive your car absolutely every day for a long time. Even then I wouldn't do it.

    I don't mind the boot time and I don't even have mine wired to the remote start. If you're driving someplace that takes less than 30 seconds you should be walking anyway.

    Most likely not. It depends on the support from your motherboard. are you able to go into standby manually?
