    solution for the power button?

    Has anyone thought of a solution for the on and off button? The power button is in the back of the mini and since most people plan to install the mini in the dash , how are you guys going to turn the unit on or put it to sleep?

    .

    I bet that system board uses ACPI.. you could probably use the startup and shutdown controllers we use for PC's.

    Just so you know if you didn't see this is the MAC forum :P

    We don't know if the system uses ACPI yet and we can't use a ITPS untill we know if it will work
