    VIA EPIA M10000
    Segate 40GB 5400 rpm
    512MB PC2100
    Toshiba CD/DVD-ROM
    Lillput 7" TFT VGA
    AutoEnginuity Scantool
    some GPS unit
    and possibly a FM/TV Tuner.

    I'll prolly hook up a USB hub up to this too. It sounds like alot of stuff to me. Will a 90W do it?
    The OPUS 90 watt should work with this setup.

    So, if the 90W Opus cuts all power on shutdown, does that mean that you can't use Standby?

    If so, then you are missing out on the best feature of the Opus.

    <-- Only has a 150

    I would get the 150W. Sure you can save a few bucks with the 90W but it is sure going to suck if you ever have to upgrade. I wouldn't worry about it draining your battery. Mine goes into standby and I have left it for plenty of time without it draining the battery. Frankly I don't think I have even heard of anyone's battery dying from using a 150W.
    AMD XP 2600+/512MB RAM/120GB hard drive
    Opus 150W/DVD/GPS/7" Lilliput TS/802.11g/Bluetooth
    Installed.

    No. It has a user selectable jumper. Standby power is enabled by default, but removing the jumper will disable standby power. This choice is yours.

    This only applies to the OPUS 90 watt.
