    M1-ATX goes into standby, but wont come out of it

    Purchased in March, dont know if it has the updated firmware with it. Is there any markings on the board?

    I set my power options in windows XP to :
    Power Button: Standby
    Sleep Button: Standby

    My M1-ATX is connected at jumper B.

    Now, when I take the key out of the car, the m1-atx shutsdown fine into standby mode.

    I wait until the whole process is over (about 10 secs) then I put the key in and turn to ON/ACC again, and here I hear the amplifier "thump" sound meaning the computer just did a hardoff and booted on again. (Yeah I did not connect the amplifier-on jumper yet, thank goodness, or I probably wont understand whats going on)

    Then I notice that the computer is rebooting, windows XP logo and all.
    Everytime I turn the key off then on it will have this thump sound and the computer even if its running will boot from scratch.

    Consequently, whenever I have my Power Button set to Shutdown or Ask Me What To Do, nothing happens. I think that's a windows problem but anyone can give a hint here?

    The only setting that works is if I enable Hibernation and set power button to hibernate, but hibernate causes problems with my system since I did the eWF install.

    My system is M10000 EPIA and M1-ATX supply.

    I did a couple more tests.

    I took off J12 from the ignition and manually connected it to +ve (same as J11 but through another point). The PC boots at this point.

    Once the PC has finished booting up and is showing the front end, I disconnected J12 from +ve and in 10 secs the PC goes into standby mode.

    All is fine.

    But now, I connect J12 to +ve again, and the PC goes hard off for 1 sec and turns on again. So now I've confirmed its not car electronics but its the M1-ATX itself.

    Does J12 need amps as well or does it just monitor the voltage (12V on J12 sends J6=0V and 0V on J12 sends J6=infinite)?

    The second test I did was, after the PC goes into standby mode, I manually short J8, and the PC boots on and resumes from standby. Then I put the key in the ignition, turn it on and the PC shuts down, and reboots again.

    Almost 20 people read this, is it me alone that experiences this problem with the M1-ATX?

    Probably you have the older firmware version. Send an email to [email protected] with your shipping address and we will send you a PIC replacement.
