    Just had an email back from Carnetix support and it is indeed the ACPI wiring... no real difference between v2.1 and v2.2 apparently.

    I'll still test with a multimeter before wiring everything up....

    The problem is the manual is kind of unclear on this spot. It looks like this is where JP3 is (which is supposed to be the isolated ACPI relays) but it also says they're supposed to be green and...

    P1900 is this pair of wires for ACPI?

    Hi all - I just received my P1900 v2.2 and I'm trying to identify the pair of wires in the pic below. The colours don't seem right based on the manual but are these the isolated ACPI wires?

    Would you be able to describe how he has it wire up? Or how you'd recommend a Carnetix P1900 be wired in conjunction with a Minispark?

    I'm trying to figure out if the Carnetix would supply 19V...

    Thanks for the post about Minispark... its definitely still roaming around in my head as an option. A couple of questions if you don't mind:

    RJ45 loopback problem... sooooo close

    My HP Mini is alllllmost working like I need it to. Last step (well, prior to wiring in Carnetix) is to get Wake from anything (LAN, Link, USB) working.

    After some playing with Wake on Link in...

    Thanks for these ideas Soundman - I have no problem replacing the power button on the HP as its a pain as it is. Silly little plastic slider. Just so I understand the idea, the mating connector would...

    I like the sound of the xobyte solution but its the cost that's throwing me... xobyte (~$150 to Canada) still needs a regulated power source. So I'm looking at a minimum of $300 (xobyte + Carnetix,...

    Thanks Soundman... is there any chance you could point me to a DIY or guide that uses something like this? Sounds like a great option, just not sure where to start!

    Has anyone had any luck with the various non-soldering laptop startup methods? I've read about wake from USB, Wake On LAN, Wake On Link and even separate hardware devices (xobyte). Can't find alot of...
  18. Temporarily using inverter - is anything going to blow?

    Right now I have an inverter powering my netbook...

    doh! Point taken... lots of good info in there. Sounds like there are certain components that will work better than others when the temp goes south. That helps to narrow down the list. Thanks! :)
