Auto On/Off Using Hibernate *and* Sleep?
I've read through many of the threads in the first couple pages of this forum, as well as the vendors' pages on the Carnetix and Xobyte units..
Basically, here's what I'm looking for:
Car turns off. PC enters standby.
-- Car is turned on within 30 minutes; computer wakes fast from standby.
-- Car is not turned on within 30 minutes; computer enters Hibernate mode.
-- Car is turned on after 30 minute mark; computer resumes relatively quickly from Hibernate, but not as fast as from Standby.
If I go ahead and use a laptop-esque PC (computer with its own battery, with Windows XP/7), could I easily do this through Power Options, and simply have a non-controlling PSU? Meaning these rules would automatically take effect as soon as the computer switches to its own "battery power."
Please give me your thoughts on this, or another approach you think I should take. How would something like the P-2140 suit my needs?
