    Does that smiley face reflect your opinion of your purchase?

    Soft power switch

    In one of somebody's photos, it looks like there is a green wire to the PSU. That should be pin 14 on the ATX connector, if its got the wire, I'm thinking the PSU is standard. Doing a little research turned up that if you short pin 14 to ground, the PSU will run all the time its plugged in, sound familiar? I'm thinking somewhere on the MB pin 14 shorts to ground. Maybe on the back of the MB between the two PWR jumper pins?

    Probably the culprit is the power suply, mayby it doesnı support being "controled" by the motherboard. Theres one way to be sure. Just plug a standard PSU, and try if you can switch on/off by shorting the PWR pins.

    Okay, after a shutdown it finishes up at the "It's now safe to power off" screen, at that point I shorted the PWR pin with the one next to it and it rebooted, is that what you'd expect? Shorting them does not seem to cut the power. Hope this helps!

    to those that already have theirs, how is the screen brightness? what would you guess the numbers are? if it was put in the car, would it be a bit on the dim side?

    i would say about 275 NITS at the brightest setting. Comparable to a laptop screen, through the touchscreen overlay.

    Interesting... Which O/S do you have loaded? The fact that it does not auto power off may indicate no power management through the BIOS. I would have hoped that what you did would have turned it off but sounds more like it was a reset. Still waiting for tracking number and the UPS guy
