    Then in power settings I set it to turn off after 1 minute when ac is removed.

      does that not require me to open my laptop ?

        This method seemed much less intrusive to me.

        Not all NIC's support WOL, though. If yours does, this is a great way to do it and not worry about opening up/soldering inside your expensive lappy.

              Sure you want to mound that nice tablet under your seat which is prone to getting dirty and wet and get kicked by the passengers?

                I haven't built my carpc yet, because I'm waiting to sell my car...

                However, wouldn't the Carnetix P2140 that supports usb wake and WOL be the best option? Will also allow you to easily switch down the road if you decide to go desktop platform standard wiring.

                Still new at this, but that was my impression of the benefits of the P2140 (aside from the software monitoring)

                  indeed i came to tht conclusion , providing ur laptop uses Wake on Lan its a good subsitute

                  But.. i decided to sell the tablet and cosnstruct a proper PC .. check the worklogs section for my install
