    The MacPac is the new power cable to be used between the CarNetix CNX-P1900 power regulator and the MacMini. The cable lets you plug in the MacMini and not tear up the power brick, hence, I can leave the power supply in the car and bring in the Mini when I want to play inside!! Hope that helps.

    The P1900 does not the cable. Visit www.carnetix.com and check out the CNX-P1900 Power Supply for all the details. I have not installed this PS yet, but from what I read, these guys have covered the bases pretty well.

    You shouldn't talk unless you own one. The P1900 and 2140 don't do anything about shutdown on a mac mini. View the carnetix forum and see the popular thread 'shutdown on mac mini'. You'll find there is no solution. The best that can be done is standby.

    I have been hoping they would fix this for a while now but they have not yet. They claim they are not mac developers and their usb driver is not supported on mac. However, one guy was able to make a mac version of their program (severely crippled) that does talk to the P2140, so it proves that they are wrong and it can be done. However, that doesn't help you with shutdown.

    To answer the origiginal question, I use the macpac to send signals from teh 2140 to the mac mini. However the signal can only do exactly what pushing the power button does. Go into and out of standby. Note to other mac users: Mac mini does NOT shut down when you push power, standby only. I hope they fix this in leopard.

    It's too bad cscreen isn't still available.

    Does anyone know another solution?

    I wouldn't mind if you were willing.

    Unless you know another way to make the resolution come up at 800 x 480 at start up.

    I'm looking at another program called SwitchResX.

    http://www.madrau.com/

    Looks like it solves all my issues.

    ^ Hey is SwitchResX pretty easy to setup or do we have to configure it like before with cscreen. I just want to find out if you had any difficulty setting it up with Leopard before I download it. Thanks
