weird sleep/wake problem
Recently built a carputer, having a weird problem with my m2-atx, running Windows XP btw.
It seems that when I turn off my ignition, the computer attempts to go to sleep and eventually turns off.
When I start the ignition, the computer first wakes up, turns off, then turns back on fully (starts with BIOS, goes to XP boot screen) and eventually reboots fully (this takes forever!)
Any suggestions? Seems like it's not sleeping/hibernating/or even shutting down properly....
Maybe your power supply isn't surviving engine cranks? How soon after you crank the engine does your computer turn on. If it tries turning on at the same time as you are cranking, there voltage drop might cause loss of power to your PC.

well its more like it shuts down instead of sleep or hibernate.
is there another way to configure the M2-ATX other than those jumper settings?
