    I'm sorry, that's not correct. When the DSSC disconnects power, it disconnects it _completely_, it's because the devices are disconnected from the battery (which they are by the relay's). There is...

    Bump.

    So how's she doing? They haven't announced the results yet, but I have a feeling she's going to Vegas.

    Mike, you might want to keep an eye on it after you turn your car off. The Inverter fan may still power up intermittently to cool off the inverter components. The fans use quite a bit of juice...

    It sounds like your Inverter may not be getting enough power.

    Does your inverter turn on if you connect it directly to your vehicle's +12v and GND?

    Some inverters have 'cooling fans' that continue to run after the computer has been turned off. Fans consume a significant amount of power (as compared to discrete components).

    A shutdown controller is probably overkill here, but we're running a very limited sale on the DSSC for a couple of days.

    It will easily do more than what you want.

    I think Windows is much more pervasive in schools than Mac's.
