    Question AOpen mini-PC power button pinout

    Hey all,
    Searched for this and couldn't find an answer. Before you shout n00b, this has nothing to do with setting up the P1900 and ACPI, I've done that once already and shouldn't have a problem this time around. I'd just like to know if anybody has a pinout for the LEDs. I'd like to disconnect the ones behind the power button and place new ones somewhere more discrete, as the PC sits visible in my lower dash/console. It'd mostly be an anti-theft mod, but also a bit of a style correction, because I'd rather them be red. I do like the power button where it is though. It's a welcome change after having to pull the Mac Mini out of the dash for manual power-up.

    Thanks,
    JD

    I would really like to know this also. i find those lights the most annoying thing ever.


    I was just going to solder them right off, but a pin out would be much better.

    Sure thing, pics of my install can be found here. Although that shows the Mac install, the Pandora will be virtually identical on the hardware side of things. I am going to try to recess it in the dash a bit more, just gotta find time to tear it all out again and trim another 1/2" or so off a bracket back in there. I need my HD to get here first though, so I can get the AOpen up and running at all.

    OK, found out from MikeH at Carnetix that the Purple and Black wires are for the button itself. Hopefully that eliminates 2 of the 6. I'll take a closer look and see if I can't trace the circuit while I've got it out for the HD installation.
