    Turning on your PC

    How do most people turn on their PCs in their car?

    Is your PC near your car seat, in your trunk? Do you have your power supply always on when your turn the ignition on?

    Man dude you're setting yourself up to get flamed. You need to before asking questions like that.

    OK, an actual proper answer now, rather than the smart-arse remarks that the Newbie forum seems to gather

    My PC is turned on/off by my Opus power supply, which detects when I turn the ignition on/off, and starts up and shuts down the PC intelligently.

    The same features are found on the equally awesome Carnetix regulators.

    I also have an excellent Opus power supply that automatically awakens my computer when the car powers on. It comes out of hibernation and, voila, is alive. When I turn off the car, the computer enters hibernation a few seconds later and is quiescent until I next need tunage or navigation.

    ...put on some soft music. "Hey baby," I say. "It's awful hot in here, let's dance a little and see if we cool off."
