    Have you considered using "suspend to ram" instead? That is what I use and it is great.

    hey, will this function on sproggys too? I heard that the supply is on full power eaven with str on, wich currents is the pc using? if its only one or two, I could just make a weaker supply witch only provides the str-currents, in small amounts? and then make the remote cable to the psu get volts at the same time that you resume from str??

    if it saves it on the ram doesn't it need a power flow ?
    if i could find the hibernation instead that would be better because the car could be of and back on and windows would not have to boot and the mp3 player ould not have to restart the last played song

    using STR requires power to keep the data in the ram, althought it should be an amount small enough not to effect your battery's life
    with hibernate you can completely shut down your computer (no power used) but it needs to properly shut down.

    unfortunately i believe both hibernate and STR require motherboard support (ie won't work on just any computer, my sockey 7 in the car doesn't but its a few years old)

    I have the same question as jol, does the Sproggy supply effectively support STR when using a STR-compliant motherboard? i know with my abit bh6, putting my machine into suspend did not reduce the current consumed by the PC at all and my battery was dead within 3 or 4 hours. Although I'm not certain my motherboard is compliant, I am using the MK 2.5

    I don't think the BH6 is STR compliant. The manual says it supports ACPI, but only in part. I noticed it switches off the fan headers in suspend, but from what I can tell, it leaves all other devices powered up and doesn't send a "sleep" signal to the power supply.

    Hibernate did not come with win98...you can get it with winME though. or XP (or even 2k I think)

    Hibernate allows you to suspend and completely power the computer off...unplug...(stores to disk)

    Suspend to ram keeps the info in ram unless power is disturbed, then the ram is emptied, and it is no longer suspended...just shut down.

    You obvously need the newer hardware to take advantage of it...not APM but the ACMI (or whatever the acronym is)

    I have a mobo from 3 years ago that has the compliant hardware.
    I think most of the ATX motherboards will be compliant...again just search the manufacturers web site.
