  • centrafuse hibernate on ignition?

    probably a stupid question but there is an option in centrafuse to hibernate/shutdown when the ignition goes off. What hardware is required for this to work?

    I have that set up through my power supply. I use the Carnetix P2140, it's wired into my car's ignition line. When the ignition goes off, the power supply detects it and sends a signal to my computer to go into hibernation.

      but is that actually controlled through centrafuse or just with your carnetix by itself?

        At least with my set up, I have windows set to go into hibernate when the power button is pressed. The Carnetix sends a signal which "presses" the power button when the ignition is turned off or turned on.

          that is understandable how that works, but centrafuse has the option to hibernate when ignition is turned off and i just wondered if there was a way to do that.

            I would suggest asking in the Centrafuse sub-forum.

                I did more research because I was curious. A little searching on your part could have answered this question.

                This thread on the Centrafuse forum answers your question: http://forums.fluxmedia.net/showthre...light=Ignition

                This just changes what the power button on your computer does...

                Most Car-PC's use the power switch to shutdown the machine X number of seconds after the ignition has been switched off...

                Hence the name... It simply changes your computer power button action...
