  • Opus n00b

    I am new to the opus and was a little confused about some of its features. I know its a DC-DC power supply, but does it interface with the ignition? Will it controll shutdown or standby funtions?

      No.

      Yes. It's a "smart" power supply so it can sense what that status of the motherboard current draw is to it doesn’t doesn't get out of sync like some other shutdown controllers do.

        So, can I make the opus put my computer into standby when I turn my car off, and back out of standby when I turn the car on?

          Yes. Out of curiousity, can you describe the path your research has taken? I'm intrigued to know how your studies on the Opus have missed these very important elements of how it works.

          I'm certain that you did some searches and read some of the forums here before posting your question, can you elaborate on them so we all understand why you need this level of clarification?

          Thanks!

              Well, what I am getting it is trying to understand how exactly the opus does this?

                It triggers the ATX power switch on the motherboard. You can configure that button to do that you whatever you want when it is triggered by the OPUS power supply. It can be configured to do things like hibernate, standby, or shutdown. All of that it software controller by the operating system you have installed such as Windows.

                  Have a read of this - http://www.mp3car.com/products/SFX_D...uide-Rev_C.pdf - then do a google search for ACPI & ATX standards.
