    It uses a 19v DC power supply (Circle head) which i run of an inverter mounted under my passenger seat.

    Certainly no performance issues with whats installed. Takes about 20 seconds to boot to windows and about 10-15 secs to shut down.

    I am using centrafuse as my front end with Map Point 2009 as my GPS. One thing to note is that i have stuck an extra gig of ram in it from factory spec.

    No mate.

    Basically you enable ACPI on the motherboard which is included with the latest bios update. What this allows is for you to set the machine to auto power on after a loss in power to the motherboard. Thus the scenario that when you turn the ignition off on the car the motherboard looses power from the invertor thus turning off (yes i shutdown before turning the engine off) When you start the engine the inverter starts giving power back to the EEEbox thus turning it back on.....Genius i say.

    You dont have to faf about with trying to get it to wake on lan and all that mollarky.
