  • Standby, Shutdown or hibernate???

    Just out of curiousity, what do most of you who have the opus 150 have your computers set up to do when you turn the car off? Standby, hibernate, or just shut down all together?

    Mine shuts down... for some reason Windows gives me a BSOD when I try to hibernate. I tried to figure it out but just gave up. It is a kind of pain to have to wait for Windows to boot up, though.

        Standby

        I use the car twice per day, so the small drain on the battery is not noticible.

        I don't see the point in getting a power supply that has the potential to leave your computer in standby, and not use it.

        I love the 3 seconds it takes to resume from standby and to playing music

          hibernate for me. 40ish seconds from ignition to music. though the DC thud every time is annoying but thats not hibernation specific.

            I have mine go into hibernation. It takes 25 +/- seconds from IGN to playing MP3s.

                Standby with hibernate. The ignition pulses (with relay) power off switch (which is set for standby) then my computer is set to hibernate after 1 hour.
                Standby = 3 seconds to MP3s
                Hibernate = 20 seconds to Mp3s

                No amp thud due to pulse timer relay

                Media Engine has slight burp with hibernate resume. Frodoplayer works fine.

                    Hibernate... and it only takes about 10 seconds to come back up.

                    I've been told that GPS devices can have a problem with Hibernation though, so I'll see how it goes when I started implementing that!

                        opus 90, using hibernate for now (testing). Mediacar and frodo work fine after upgrade of XP to sp2 and disabling power management for the usb root hubs etc...

                        Not using my gps yet though...
