    m1 atx is killing my battery on taxi mode

    i set my m1 atx to 7, or the 3 hour/taxi mode. now according to the guide it says when my battery reaches 11 volts it will shut down the system. but still my battery is always dead after it sits over night... or even for like 5 hours.

    also if i have it set to this and the battery reaches 11 volts will it slowly shut down the computer or will it instantly just cut the power.

    i just want it to stay on for a little while when i get to my house so i can goto my room and sync up any new music or hatever before it shuts down. also it would be nice if i didnt have to wait for start up every time i go into a store or get gas or whatever.

    what exactly does taxi mode even mean?

    Often stops, without killing your PC (up to 3 hours)

    Do you really need 3 hours for OFFDELAY? That could kill your battery alone.
    Then, if your battery is not dead, try STANDBY=never (mode7) that will take your battery to low, lowe levers (20% capacity).

    Please try mode #1

    ive had it on mode 1. that mode works fin. but the computer shuts down immediately. i ned some time to be able to access my drive from my other computer before it shuts down. what about a wake on LAN setup? could i maybe have it set up in a way were the computer will turn on when i tell it to over my network then shut it back down when im done?

    If you use Wake on LAN, your PC in standby mode has to have the LAN hardware powered up and that takes power, not as much as you full PC (right now mine is 3amps running vs. 180mA suspended with EVERYTHING off) but it's still some power.
