Hi, I was just wondering since my carputer takes FOREVER to start (Damn HP) if there is a way to make the shutdown controller send the computer to Hibernate instaed of turning it off? Anyone know about it? Thanks!
Hmm, I tried that, but still, when I turn off my computer, I guess the shutdown controller powers off the computer... I hate waiting 5-8 minutes for my carputer to start!!
Does the shutdown controller stay on long enough for the computer to run the hibernate procedeure? If it cuts power too soon after the key is turned off then the computer won't hibernate right.
On a side note, 5-8 minutes to boot??
Spent so far: $1,755

Wait, I was just confused with the hibernate option. It does go into hibernate and it works fine too. BUt the HP Invent screen gets stuck on for 5-8 minutes so I have to resolve that!! But Hibernate works and resumes after those 5-8 minutes are up!! Ahhh.. So close, yet so far!
change the bios settings to shut off the hp logo .. also change the settings to make a quicker self test etc
Hmm, I'll try shutting the HP logo, but I don't know if I saw that in the BIOS, and I don't think I saw a quicker self test.
Maybe their's a BIOS update you need apply... Or totally wrong settings in your BIOS... that is plain wrong even HP servers are only a minute on the BIOS, SCSI controller.. ILO screens and that's a Pain in the arse to wait for!!!

err.. well first off as far as the Hibernation your shutdown controller needs to support hibernation or standby. Than you can set windows to standby or hibernate instead of power off.
There is something fishey going on with that HP, not even a win95 machine or a 450 MHZ machine with XP takes 5-8 minutes to load... your load times should be between 45-90 seconds. Anything more than this then I would assume there is an issue with the machine...
What speed is the HP, how much RAM what Operating system.. what kind of harddrive... what is the temp. that its usually booting in... is it in a normal case or a custom case ? How is the IDE connector connected to the hdd is it loose ??
