    standby with ITPS

    is it possible to have the ITPS stay live, just sending a shutdown pulse to the board? rather than having it cut the power completley after a certain time?

    Sure. Just dont wire the PC's 12v input to the ITPS. Wire it to a constant 12v supply from your car battery instead. The ITPS will just push the button then.

    If the PC's input is wired to the car battery it wont be regulated

    If you want to use ITPS to regulate power, then you will only be able to set up for "Hibernation" instead of "Stand by".

    Hibernation recovery is pretty fast IMO. My music starts playing about 10 seconds after computer gets power from ITPS, so total to about 13-15 seconds after crancking... Stand by will definitely be much faster, but I don't really mind it. If you are really anal about it, you should just dish out the extra cash for OPUS or the other more "intelligent" PSUs that support stand-by.
