Finally got my carputer installed into the LX450 =) still needs a little cleanup but the bulk install is done. I'm running a IBM Thinkpad T23, Lilliput TS 7", D-Link usb radio, usb 2.0 dvd, serial gps. Problem Im having is power supply. I currently have the laptop connected to switch power and monitor connected to constant power. But when I turn off the car the laptop senses this and go into battery conservation and the monitor goes blank in 1 min (no video signal) but the laptop stays on battery. This drains and eventually run the LT battery down. Then I have to power on the LT for the pw switch (Located in the ps front foot well!!) The wireless keyboard and TS doesn't wake up the LT from standby!! One option I was thinking was to swap power and have the lilliput with the switched power and LT with the constant.... but will this drain my car battery to a point where it won't start? How long will it last? Any suggestions would be great. Pics to follow
