    Intel Mini and standby?

    Just wondering if anyone who has Windows XP running on the Intel Mini with the P1900, knows if u can put it into standby?

    Yes, Windoze has a standby if the hardware supports it.
    On a regular PC, there are power settings in the BIOS configuration to enable standby mode.
    I don't know if there's an equivilant on a Mac Mini, though.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    OSX and Windows when it comes to sleep, are vastly different.

    Windows standby keeps the CPU and everthing running, but shuts off the monitor. Windows hibernate shuts everything off, and takes at least 10sec+ to come back (windows is restarting and whatnot)

    OSX sleep....shuts everything off, and upon wake turns right back on in about 2 secs.

    I havent seen anything on an Intel mac besides the OSX sleep.

    Sleep in windows is not the way to go. Using my p1900 I setup windows to go into hibernate. When I boot into osx it goes into sleep. Hope this answers your question.

    This is why I like OSX better than windows for a carputer.

    Instant wake from sleep.

    Acutally sleep in windows turns off everything and supplies a small amount of power to the ram, this way the PC can resume in < 4seconds just like the mac.

    cheers

    Here's the deal. On the Mac, there are only a couple of options; Shut Down, Sleep, Restart. It is possible to do something equivalent to Hibernate in Windows, but it is a hack and I don't know of anyone doing it.


    -----Windows-------------Mac Equivalent

    1...Shut Down................Shut Down
    2...Suspend..................Sleep
    3...Restart..................Restart
    4...Hibernate.................Safe Sleep*



    *Available on recent Powerbooks
