been using this board for 2-3 months now. works dandy except for a few things:
1. sometimes when the power is too high (unregulated power) the system will reboot and cannot find SSD. press and hold power button +4 seconds, then turn it on again works. this was annoying when i did not use sleep. btw, my boot time for my vista 64 was 12 seconds (loaded, no hour glass, ready to work). i once booted in 3 seconds. this was done when i swapped system drives and windows skipped device loading.
2. if in sleep mode, usb devices are still powered! my car looks like a christmas light with all those usb devices on. i haven't figured a way to turn it off. it is in S3, meaning only memory is powered... usb should be off, but they arent! actually, with all those lights, theives wont want to touch it thinking they are alarm systems. i think those devices put a larger drain on the battery
3. while in sleep mode, it seems the car should be ok in a day and a half. i didn't use my car for 2-3 days and when i went to crank, it almost did not start. you can hear the engine trying to start but barely makes it. this wasn't a problem when i use to live at home where i park into my auto charger (clips that touch two metal plates to charge the system).
other than that, the system works well running all these systems:
-gps mapping (1%cpu)
-logitech cam in record mode (10%cpu)
