    Offdelay/Hardoff

    Hello, sorry for asking dumb question.........
    What is offdelay/hardoff ? On the user guide I read that we can set the jumper to define the time scheme for offdelay/hardoff. For example, it read offdelay/hardoff 5sec/45sec. But if the computer shuts itself down after 5sec we turn off the ignition, how can it "hardoff" again after 45sec? Am I missing something?

    What power supply are you using?

    Without that information, we can't help you.

    From reading the instructions, it looks as though the PC will shut down after 5 secs, but if it hangs on shutdown then the system will be turned off via the "hardoff" setting after 45 secs to ensure the PC doesn't stay on and drain your battery.

    Offdelay/hardoff

    Ooops...yes, it is M1-ATX. Thanks Curly.......
    If it's true, it is neat that the power supply has this kind of mechanism, isn't it? Is it common for a car PC to hang during shut down?.
    My colleague suspects that the computer will turn-off itself after 5 secs but since it still consumes about 100mA on the 5V rail, in order to avoid the draining out of the battery, the power supply will 'hard-off' to cut all power from the battery.................
