    I would guess that most folks, including the author of the skin, use the hibernate button much more often than the power button. That might explain why the hibernate button and not the power button is at the left of the screen.

    Personally, I do not use the exit screen at all really. I just turn the ignition off, and the computer goes into standby. Start the car, and it resumes.

    As for the layout of the buttons, there is no winning scenario here. If I move the power button to the left, then some are going to want it on the right. So, basically, it is what it is.

    One thing I do not understand, is the need to have a button (based on a 7" screen in the car) 4 inches closer. I would imagine users like this use only the station presets 1-3 on their head unit, as 4, 5 & 6 are just to far to reach

    I don't think I have ever used the standby button...Maybe just to first test sleep.

    Maybe someone can help me with my S&T problem...

    Here is the line from the Skin.ini that corresponds to the Streets and Trips button on the main menu that will not load the app:

    MenuExec_18=LOAD;StreetsTrips.skin||RUN;C:\Program Files\Microsoft Streets & Trips\Streets.exe;Map - Microsoft Streets & Trips

    This line is from the audio_player skin (when you choose Music from main menu?) that does launch the application:

    B,490,82,104,81,"LOAD;Audio_GPS.skin;$gpsname$;$gp spath$;$gpsname$",

    When I use the GPS button in from the audio player, the application launches and I hear the voice speak "Map Microsoft Streets and Trips"

    Here is my settings in RideRunner for GPS:

    I've also included my StreetsTrips.skin file

    I don't remember what your problem is and I'm not a user of S&T, but if it's an embedding problem you might want to try removing the quotation marks from the GPS Window Name.

    My problem is that I can't get S&T to load from the main menu button. I did try removing the quotes and it didn't help.

    I tried this and it didn't make a difference. I find it strange that the application will load from other skins, just not from the main menu.

    Woot.

    EDIT: Except the only thing that seems actually be a zipped folder and only includes a donation reminder patch. Tried changing to a .exe and all I get is the cmd window.
