It's up to you. Do you want the PC to stay on for a short time or not? This is really self explanitory. Perhaps you're just over thinking it?I have a M1-ATX PSU - My first Question is what power setting do I want to use?
Again, it's up to you. With a DC-DC PSU, you just leave the car like you would normally. Just turn it off and pull the key.The reason I ask is the lead into the Next question which is (I looked everywhere for this and I didnt see a write up or FAQ about it) what do I do when I leave my car? From what I did read but still un-sure about is use Hibernation is this correct?
Depending on how you have your OS set-up, the computer will do one of a few choices based on your decisions on how you have your CarPC set-up
- Shut down completely
- Wait a predetermined amount of time before it does any of the above
The choice is up to you. If you're not sure which one fits your needs best, I'd recomend researching what Suspend and Hibernate actually are then decide once you have that knowledge in hand.
No - it will tell it do do what you have it set-up to do.ATM from what I have read is use Hibernate but what happens afer the Recommended option on the M1 which is 5 sec / 2 hr. Does that mean after 2 HRs it completelly kill the comp and it will force reboot anyways when I restart the car?
If you set windows to go into hiberantion when the power button is hit, it will go into hibernate once the PSU has timed out.
I don't know, do you?Do I want to use the smart power option 30 Sec / Never?
I'm going to move this thread to a more appropriate forum. This is probably why you never recieved a response in the first place.
