how long am i able to run my carputer in standby (str)?
VIA Epia M10000 Nehemiah
WD 60GB HD
Wondering how long I can run this machine in my car on battery in standby mode (Suspend to RAM)
Sometimes I don't start my car for 3-5 days when I don't have class (like now because of vacation)
I work from my home so not much work travel
Would this work or is it just safer to do a full shutdown?
I really like STR though, really fast. Boots back up in 5 seconds
input power range from opis..
your carputer will be shut down at least if your carbattery is going under 7V! :D
i can't say if your car will be able to start with only 7V of current.. but i'm sure it isn't that good for your battery!
this is the reason why i'm using a laptop instead of a "normal" pc, because it can run at least more than an hour and synchronize sound & moviez over wlan until it wents automaticly into hibernate mode! without using current from carbattery!!
always use HIBERNATE mode if you're leaving your car several days without starting.. it consumes much less current!!
