    definately a BIOs problem if your OS loads pretty fast. Try checking some of your settings...I had a similar problem because 1) i didnt have my hardware settings saved and it had to check them every time....and 2) there is a quickboot and a normal boot do a quickboot and it will go much faster.

    There's a guy who claims to have 7 second resume from suspend.

    mines about 25 from hibernation. 512MB RAM though so thinking after CF upgrade might go over to EWF now most things have been straightened out

    I would try hooking up the staring of the car to your alarm remote so when you unlock the car it starts up. That would give you at least a second or two more time.

    Check out Soekris Engineering. They make fully small scale 486/586 machines that run linux. They have no monitor output, you just use hyperterm over a serial connection (dumb terminal). They have no hard drive, instead you install the OS on a flash card, just like a digital camera uses. These things can supposedly be runng in less than ten seconds. This would be great for ignition work...

    I'm working on two different projects that will use the Net4521, but I haven't received them yet...

    I think when I finally get mine to the installation phase I will use win2k pro.

    Even better, use an inexpensive fingerprint reader to login, and again to do ignition. Sure beats having to remember PINs, and it gives you the ability to grant access to others to the car. I was tempted to use one in my rig, but since I have manual transmission, I shyed away from it.

    14 seconds from hibernating to playing music. I also have my alarm's aux output set to trigger the pc so that if I hold it down for 3 seconds, it turns on. When I'm walking to the car, I turn it on, and it's timed perfectly.

    That is kinda what I want it to do, but I just want it to start when I unlock the car. It would be pretty easy if I had an aftermarket alarm, but I don't. I was a little bit worried about mucking around with the electronics, but I think I have a good idea of how to do it now, when I get the time.

    I am also at about 15 seconds from hibernating to music, and suspend is only 5 seconds or so.
