    M2-ATX jumper settings

    whats up guys, I recently bought a carPc setup from an individual online and I finally got it installed. My only issue is that I cant get the power settings right. I believe it has a combination of 1 or 2 issues, first as far as startup it boots up perfectly, Im running Centrafuse 3.0 on XP by the way. But when it comes to shutdown, I shut the car off and it goes immediately to standby, and eventually shuts off. After 1 min or more, if I restart the car, it reboots all over, and does not resume from standby or hibernation. If I manually select standby or hibernate the PC will go into the selected mode, but start right back up again! But if I select Turn off, it shuts down and does not comeback on unless I start the car again. Does this have anything to do with the J10 jumper settings? I looked at the M2-ATX manual but its not making since to me as far as the settings and the ABCD diagram, anybody know how to set this?

    Right click the desktop and select Properties, go to Screen Saver, set Power Button to hibernate.

    Do this. The jumpers on the power supply are only for setting how long the M2-ATX stays on before initiating its shut down. And how long it waits before shutting off hard.

    ok its been an few months since the install and having this issue. It appears to be an issue with the atom 330 processor I'm using in combination with windows 7. MOST of the time the system shuts down properly, hibernates as its supposed to, then resumes at ignition. I would say 1 out of 7 start ups the system does not come out of hibernation properly. It would say system did not shutdown properly or whatnot, which is very irrating when youre hoping for a smooth quick startup each time. I'm still trying to figure out the cause but its hard to tell, anyone have a similar setup with this issue?

    Most likely a driver is causing Windows to fail to hibernate. Usually you'll see a dialog pop up showing the reason, then after the PSU times out it will cut the power. There should also be errors in the event log.

    No. Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer. Should be under critical or error.

    I checked the event log and it said the kernal power task had a critical error. error 41, task 63 i have no clue what this means. Would antiviris cause the system to freeze or shutdown? I watched the system go into hibernation and the screen went blank immediately and did not show the system slowly preparing to hibernate.... im still stumped
