    That setting mentioned is for automatically starting after a power loss, the Ļafter power lossĻ is what your after for this HPīs bios.
    ^ THANK YOU!! I switched the "After Power Loss" to ON and everything seems to be hibernating and resuming properly now!!
    I didnt switch the headers tho, is that something I should still do? Or just leave it since its working properly now?

    No problem. But did you actually get a cable for the motherboard on/off button to use? If you did, then ya, check the 2 pins/wires for proper polarity, as if you do have it, it should be starting on itīs own without that bios entry.

    Sorry, I havent been able to figure out what motherboard cables your talking about? The PSU is connected to the PC via USB and spliced AC cable only. Are you talking about the polarity of the spliced AC cable?

    So thatīs a no then. Donīt worry about it then. Iīm guessing youīve never put together a desktop? Thereīs just a thin, like .26 gauge 2 strand wire that connects to the motherboard headers for ACPI on/off headers. If you look inside your PC, you should see the 2 wires from the front power button going to the motherboard as Iīve described.

    A couple of the carnetix wiring packages that I previously linked has it. But if your happy how itīs operating, your good to go.

    Heh no, I'm a complete newb when it comes to carPC and computer stuff, I'm more of a engine tuner rather than a audio/visual/computer guy.
    But nope, definitely don't have that cable. My power button connects directly to the motherboard.
    But ya, it is working the way I want it now, EXCPET it is still randomly going into hibernate for no apparent reason (not hard shutdown as I originally thought). It will happen right when I turn my car on, or half way through my trip. Completely random. Other than that it seems to be operating fine..
