    p-2140 and acpi ?

    Hi All,

    I managed to get my mini pc with laptop wiring rigged up.

    it gets power and I than have to manually hit the power button, when switching off ignition the pc shuts off immediately.

    Where should I wire the ACPI to the power button ? does anyone have an explanation of how ACPI functions ?

    I had to use the 19V+ rail + 12v line and ground.

    Follow the leads from the power button to the motherboard.
    That's where you connect the ACPI headers.

    Some basic info about ACPI: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ACPI
    Google for more detailed info.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
