    Yeah, the external program is kind of overkill, but I had it already on my computer, and it pops up a warning window, which lets me cancel the hibernate. You could also use shutdown.exe

    The idea for the warning window, and external program is to let me turn off the car, start the hibernation countdown, then turn the car back on, the countdown is stopped, then turn off the power again, but the countdown doesn't go this time (so I can connect to it remotely, or if I know I am only going to have it running from the battery for a little bit).

    I wan't to make an application out of it, so I can make it a little bit more general.

    I don't know if your switch is bad, but you might check the If Availability. I had a hard time finding any documentation for what the availibility value is supposed to represent (iirc) and the value there is just what happened to work on my computer.

    Also, I had some problems with disabling devices directly (worked for some, but not for others) but disabling the hub the device is connected to seemed to work better. are you disabling the GPS or a hub? If you dont have an external hub you might try disabling the root hub.

    hope that helps.

    I tried disabling the gps itself. I have a work around going on now with a batch file and a button press in frodo so all is good hehe. Just wish these darn manufacturers would make quality drivers that work. grrr
