M2 doesn't want to power up after hibernation.
OK, Iíve had enough and am now driven to asking for help. Iíve searched every thread I can find but cannot find an explanation or a conclusion for my problem on the M2.
Specs - Mini-itx motherboard (J&W Minix 780G). 2GB Ram. Only a generic USB keyboard and mouse plugged in, nothing else. Toshiba 320GB HDD. Windows7 professional 64bit. Put it all together in the case with the M2. Connected J4 to a negative wire on a 300W desktop PSU and J1 to a positive wire on the desktop PSU. J3(IGN) is connected to a yellow wire from the PSU.
Now the hibernation part seems to work OKÖbut, if I plug back in J3, I thought the computer would bring itself out of hibernation and restart when itís in anything other than P0? If I plug J3 back in within a minute, the computer resumes windows but after that this doesnít happen. Itís almost as if the M2 has switched itself off and nothing will bring it back. I have to completely remove all connections, leave it for a few hours and then it will resume windows but only after several attempts at restarting. I tried simulating with P3 and let the computer go into hibernation. Waited a few hours and plugged in J3 and nothing. I have no power going to the motherboard.
I think Iíve tried everything. Even down to replacing the jumpers in case one of those wasnít working. So now Iím at a dead end. Where to go from here? Is the M2 fubar? Does BIOS over rule windows or the other way? Can someone give a detailed explanation of how the M2 powers down and then up again?
I need helpÖand with the M2.

Further to above.
In P3 mode when I plug J3 back in, the led on the laser mouse starts flashing but the computer does nothing. When I remove J3, the led stops flashing.
