    can the Opus stay powered up indefinately for STR? ie: no shut down after 20 minutes?

    Im confused all I read about shutdown controllers is this 10 second to 20 minute crap and then it shuts down, I sorta think that sucks unless im just not understanding it correctly...

    I want my computer to SUSPEND... not shut down after 10 minutes, 20 minutes, whatever... I want to come home, shut off the car... have it suspend to ram, goto sleep and wake up in the morning... start the car and have everything the way it was when I got out within 10 seconds... I dont want the computer to reboot basically...

    Is this possible? I know you can do STR and what not, but then people say it cuts power after 20 minutes at the longest no matter what, if the computer was suspended would it still cut power then turn it off afterwards as well?(ie: be useless)

    Or does the 10 second to 20 minute "power off" trigger actually make the PC suspend to ram and not cut full power? if that time will make it suspend andnot turn off completely then I will order the Opus.

    I want to order it now but Im still confused

    it just sends an atx pulse like the power button was pressed so you can set it in the power management for example with windows

    You can set up it the way you want it yes....it will take a tiny bit of configuring....But it will draw power in suspend. So if you leave your car not running for week or so....(DEAD BATTERY)
    I'm running mine in hibernate and I'm up in about 9 secs....So I go for the hibernation. Doesn't use power then.
