    thats not the best way to wire your power button. the best way is to switch the BATT+ power wire to the M2 itself. that way, if you get stuck, you can easily cut power to the m2, which not only resets the motherboard it resets the power supply logic too. the power button on the motherboard is controlled by the m2, you cannot use it manually unless you disconnect it from the m2 first (more work)

    your motherboard should not be losing track of time though. if it continues to happen, replace the cmos battery.

    Hope someone can help solve both problems:
    -why does system not restart after I press the button
    -why is system time and date reset when I finally get it back to live (by pressing the button a million times or by disconnecting power)
    ok dude,

    i found the reason for not being able to reboot was my USB hub - which led me to create two switches (just like on a desktop pc) - one switch for a soft shutdown/startup and a second for a hard shutdown/startup.

    The soft switch setup you have leave as is. The second hard switch (on/off button) you connect between the pc and battery. You can place this button next to the soft switch.

    Although this may not be related to you, i found after doing this that my system was still hanging. I'm leaning towards a defective hub. Since removing the hub (which is powered by a 5v cable) now my system response to a hard shutdown/startup. I will keep checking in the next few days to confirm that that was the problem. Hopefully it was.

    P.S. i did the same thing for my monitor.

    hope this helps.



    I'm loving the motherboard. Can't wait for Win7

    No, not that I'm aware of. Isn't that only a Vista/Windows 7 option?

    I agree, the CMOS battery probably needs to be replaced.

    yes hybrid sleep was introduced with vista, xp does not have that option.

    OK, i need help. I purchased the 4-pin S to rca adapter and it is not recognized on the system. I then take a (what looks like) 9-pin s-cable, plug it in, go to settings, add tv out option (it is now available), disconnect that s-cable, put the 4-pin cable back in, and i'm able to see the video. So what's the problem you ask? When i turn my computer off and turn it back on - i no longer get video! WTF!

    Is this a bios issue or am i missing a step here? Please help...

    sounds like the svid output on your pc is designed for communication to the video adapter. some are designed to work fine with the 4pin, others are designed to use that 9pin setup for various things... when you first plug in the 9pin and it works, its only working with the 4pin at that point too because it still thinks the 9pin is installed. you really need a special adapter (that should have came with your videocard) that goes from the 9pin to a breakout pigtale that includes all the in's and out cables.

    HOWEVER, in most cases, there should be an option in the video control panel to allow "Force TV Detection". this will enable the 4pin cable to work all the time...

    thanks trader007

    i agree. there should be an option somewhere to force tv detection. Before i dive into the settings or even registry, i'm going to reach out to intel for support.

    Couple of things. (Since I have this board running very succcessfully in my 740i).

    Switch: Yes, putting a switch inline with the +12v line from your battery/distribution box is the best way to go. As others have mentioned, that cuts power "completely" to the system, including the power supply. (Mine's an M2-ATX as well). I ran about an 18 ft length 3-wire harness to the front of my car and the switch is mounted right near my left foot. (This is where the hood release, and the trunk release is, in a BMW 740). No issues with either the length of the wire (it's just simple 16ga wire), or the switch. The switch has to be ON for the system to function at all (and then the M2-ATX settings take over), and if the switch is off, the system is completely off.

    I have my system set to "sleep" when the power button is pushed (very very important) and hybrid sleep is enabled in the power settings. This is all on Windows 7 release version (I have MSDN), 32 bit. You MUST set your system to "sleep" when the power button is pushed, i.e. the software setting, so that when the M2-ATX sends it a power down command (when the ignition is turned off), it doesn't actually power down, it goes to sleep. In the BIOS I have enabled S3 sleep, so when the system goes to "sleep", it's in S3 sleep. Hybrid sleep is nothing complicated. It just means that the system also writes a file to the hard disk that is an exact replica of the RAM at the moment the system goes to sleep. Remember, when the sytem is sleeping, you CAN'T turn off the power to the system completely otherwise it breaks the sleep cycle.

    My system has a DVD drive connected (powered through a 5V harness from the M2-ATX itself), a SpaceNavigator, a powered USB hub (the power to the hub is external to the system), USB Bluetooth adapter and other stuff like a network (I have an in car wireless router as well). In S3 sleep, the entire system consumes less than 50mA. I could let the car sit for almost a month and it would be fine.

    And waking from S3 sleep is literally instantaneous. 2-3 seconds. By the time I put my seat belt on, the system is ready.

    Video Out. S-video/composite video on this board is tricky. If you are using an S-video to composite adapter with this board and it's either not showing any video or you're getting black and white image (or something funky like this), then that adapter is NOT compatible with this board. Trust me, I tried about 9 different adapters. I had listed a compatible adapter a lil while ago, it's not the "best" adapter out there (the image is slightly on the fuzzy side, when looking at text, moving video is fine), but it works 100%.

    Hope this helps.

    @kapone

    for the working s-video adapter - did you provide a link? i purchased one recommended from here and it doesnt work - granted it cost under $3 bucks.

    When using the S3 feature for sleep mode - what is your wiring diagram? ARe both your constant and switch cables from the power supply going together to the battery?

    thanks
