will this work to wake the laptop from standby...??
thats the onlything missng from putting my msi wind in the car... i need a way to start it up, and cant get wake on lan to work
It's called your finger.... Just kidding. Do you mean you're mounting it in a location that isn't within your reach?
I couldn't get my Aspire to wake on lan either. If I wanted to I could build the momentary power switch, but for right now I'll stick to pushing the power button and letting software turn it off.
Has anyone gotten the OPs method to work in any form or fashion (hibernate [which I really suspect wouldn't work like others] or standby)?
windows pops right up and im good to go. Now the only problem i get is that the battery doesnt last very long in standby. Not 100% sure why not or how to get it to last longer but its really annoying me now!
power right? If you have a long enough drive to recharge the batteries think about the 9 cell. http://gizmodo.com/5208885/msi-wind-...t-and-day-long
thats work for in vista but the scheduled tasks wake up from hibernation every 1 minute even when i dont dont get ac power.
i check the box "Stop if computer switches to battery" but the computer still make it and then go to hibernation mode (i don't plugged ac power).
what i need to check at the "if the task runing"?
I have solved this problem by activating wake-on-link feature on my laptop (Compaq Mini) network adapter and using mini ethernet switch which is powered when I'm turning my car on.
Laptop will go to the hibernate mode after 10 minutes when it's running on battery.
Buffalo USB mini ethernet switch is really small and can take power from USB port. I have 12V universal laptop car adaptor with USB port and the ethernet switch is connected to it.
This solution works both on stand-by and hibernate.
