    If you are running Windows XP run MSConfig and remove anything from the startup tab that isn't needed, you can also tweak the services and boot.ini tabs if need be. www.tweakxp.com has all kinds of neat little tips and tricks to speed up boot and recovery times.

    i've got an opus, obviously they're meant to be able to do that but is it reliable?

    Opus units are very reliable.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    File this under the "someone who has more initiative than I do" department...

    Someone should make a circuit that monitors battery voltage while the computer is in standby, waits until a specified level, then wakes the computer out of standby (like with a Wake-on LAN setting, or motherboard pulse...I'm not sure), and finally hibernates the computer (maybe via a serial command or something).

    Shazaam. Problem solved. Now...just to build it...

    You haven't bothered to look at the specs for the unit.
    I'll allow you time to do just that. Get back to me then.

    I don't know what you are using for a power supply for the whole thing but I have one of the carnetix units, and wired the pulse start option to turn the computer on when I unlock my doors, so now my music is ready by the time I turn the car on
