    number of fonts shouldn't matter since windows 3.1.
    Windows 3.1 used to load in a list of all the installed fonts when it started up. Windows 98 and later removed that. Number of fonts mainly effects disk space.

    Thanks in advance!

    That's a very good advice. Did he also tell you to put a fuse very close to the battery?

    ive actually timed my system to about a 20 second reload from hibernate boot time. and this is with 512MB RAM. of course it also helps to have a nice bios which can be set for super short post times (just short of a second on a soft restart or about 5 seconds or less on a cold start due to HD spin up)

    Just get a CarPC EZ to solve your SDC problems. It is the solution to all your issues and even includes inverter control (if you were to ever use one). MP3Car sells it here in the store.

    Shutdown controller

    Try www.mini-box.com they have an ITPS with shutdown controller for under $40. If you already have a power supply remove the voltage regulator and use it just as a shutdown controller. Sorta expensive but it will work and it's easy.

    Booting into the OS takes us 30 seconds with Windows XP. Our bios with everything tweaked takes 8 seconds and then it takes about 22 seconds for the OS to boot from hibernation.

    We wrote a tutorial on it. It only helps users running XP.

    I have never heard that using hibernation can damage LCD's. Do you have any proof or docs I could look at. I would be very interested.
