    Will an OPUS power back up once the battery is charged?

    I've been having an issue with my OPUS 90watt shutting off completely after it's sat in the driveway over night. Basically I will start the car, but the PC won't boot. When I check the status LED on the OPUS, it does not flash at all. It's like it's shut itself down.

    So the question is, if my battery voltage dips too low over night (my USB devices are always in standby), should it or should it not automatically come back to life once the car started and full power restored? Mine won't unless I disconnect all power, wait about a minute, and then plug it back in.

    I sent OPUS tech support an email about this and didn't get much of an answer.

    P.S. My battery is a brand new Optima Yellow Top.

    i have the same problem sometimes with my 90w opus; however, just wriggling my crappy inline fuse holder does the trick to get the thing blinkin again

    I wish it was just a simple bad connection.

    Anyone else?
