My carputer works great and i have been driving around with it few days now.
what you guys are talking about isnt my issue.. bugs arent my issue.. and M2's sequences arent what i DONT understand.. i just know that i dont need to waste time here.. and i dont need to be talked to like im stupid, just cuz your comprehension do not go beyond the obvious. Perhaps if you have worked for over 20 yrs in F50 companies leading major IT projects, then you would start seeing what is usually hard to explain or may be too far fetched for some to comprahend.
Im not here to change M2, The intention of the discussion was to come up with better options and behaviours which are more robust, less painfull to setup, quiker to impliment and more fool proof.
anyways, i found another forum where there are a few EE's and a couple of guys from intel and i got a much better feedback.
may be ill build one of my own ! that would be truly "intelligent" and free of flaws.
if M2 was built to ATX standards and has no flaws, then the startup problem (the capacitor replacement) shouldnt have happened. Mini-box told me that it was due to the LV677 mobo that is "different" which isnt true. The PS had a flaw and LV677 mobo had nothing to do with it. cuz the home ATX supply out of my 7 yr old compaq had no problems.. and it still doesnt. you know why? "CUZ ITS ATX COMPLIANT" and it was built when COMMELL didnt even exist..
So my friend, M2 really isnt a very robust piece of hardware. it could have functional flaws but you dont have to defend it and accept them as perfect. The forums are full of M2 wierd behaviours, which seem to appear out of no where, people are having problems that come and go. So calm down.. and take part in the discussion instead of uncovering your guns and going to war.
My bios settings in power management are:
When i press the button = shut down (not "ask me what what to do").
M2 should not reboot. and hybernate should not be my only option..
On power failure = Do not restart.
I agree with what m2 does, and dont agree with how it behaves in some cases which i think could be better.
anyways.. this is my last visit on this post.. so good luck with your projects !
