    m1-atx is this working correctly?

    I have my pc set up using the supplied ac/dc power supply which the positive is connected to the ACC and constant battery power. I put a switch on the ACC wire. When I turn off the ACC wire the PC shuts off instantly, fan and led....; When I turn it back on it goes back through the whole startup process. If I had something running (like Frodo) when the pc comes back on there is nothing running. It takes just a little over 1 minute to boot up. I have the jumpers set for the 5sec/2hour shutdown. I thought that when I shut it off it would come right back to life inside of a 2 hour period? Oh and I'm running xp pro sp2 on a MKII

    Does this sound like it is running correctly or do I have something wrong?????

    5s/2hrs means that the PC will receive the shutdown command 5s after you switch the ACC wire off. If your PC is configured correctly it should proceed through a normal shutdown cycle. If your PC fails to shutdown correctly, it will be forced off after 2 hours when the PSU will force all of its power rails off.

    m1-atx is dc-dc; not ac-dc.

    If you wire it correctly (red = constant 12V; white = acc 12v and black = ground) it should start ~3-4seconds after you put the key in the contact and stop 5secs after (as described in the 5s/2h setting). I just installed mine last week and it works like a charm

    I have the ac power brick that converts to DC and is plugged into the M1-atx. The + is hooked to the red and white and a switch is on the white acc wire. I guess I was thinking that when I turned the switch back on that everything would start from where it was previously (frodo would still be open)? It sounds like I thats not how it is suppose to be. It does though seem to properly shut down because I don't get any of the "windows was shutdown improperly checking disk" type message when it comes back up.

    drop the power brick in the bin that is no longer needed. Just connect the battery up to the m1-atx

    I will once I get everything installed in the SUV, wires etc and have all the programs running like I want.

    So when you shut down and turn it back on you have to reload everything???? I thought it would/could work like my laptop, when I shut the lid it goes off and when I open the lid back up everything resumes from where I left it??

    edit.
    Okay dumbass alert. I found that at some point I had switched the red and white wires on the M1atx so my switch was on the battery line which is why I had a instant off . Then doing some searching figured out I didn't have the video driver so that is why no hibernation.....dumbass.....
