    Hard off is when the power supply cuts all power output.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Hardoff is the term use for the manufactures to describe a brute power off (meaning that if for some reason the OS hangs, the PSU will power off the SYS even if there is an APP open *same action than when you keep the power button press for 5 secs or more*)

    Does anyone know why hardoff is still recommended over the 11.5v cutoff? It doesn't seem clear as to why it would be required to use the hardoff function to prevent battery drainage when the PS is supposed to cut power anyway.

    it is an extra safety feature, incase:
    your operating system hangs during shutdown (softoff) and so your computer is still running
    OR
    your battery voltage goes under a certain level (which will make it incapable of starting your car engine)
