    What is the power problem for using the Mini Mac in a vehicle?

    Its a perceived problem. The mini drains about 200 ma when in sleep mode and that might over time drain your battery.

    I have used my PC in sleep mode for about a year with the same kind of power drain with no problems. So I think using the Mini in sleep mode will not be a problem.

    Cheers,

    The problem is the powerconnector, wich seems to be a Apple special. So the only solution so far seems to be an inverter.
