    Just another friendly tip. this may be a one time thing but possibly worth the effort. I noticed if the config.ini file is damaged the program wont run. You can simulate this by saving a blank config.ini file.

    Well my system didn't hibernate correctly and the config.ini file got damaged. I had to restore from a back up. In a car this could get cumbersome so I created a fix.bat file to automate it. Maybe you could add some code to restore to defaults if the file becomes corrupt..Just a thought. Again Love the program, hope you can look in to my issues thx man!!!

    Hi,

    I stopped working on this project a short while ago (about a year). When I get home I will crack open the code and have a browse through for you. A little donation wouldn't go amiss if you want a bit more haste

    You can be assured the donation is in order. Once I saw what it could do I was very tankful. Unfortunately with out the features working I could not really use it. Currently it is being 1/2 used and I wrote a few bat files to make up for some of the other 1/2. I would be happy to resume the project for you as well. C++ is my coding trade but I can handle VB when I have to .. Either way I will show my appreciation.

    Thanks for the great information.

    I am interested in building a loopback adaptor. Can someone please provide some more information on the relays (maybe Radio Shak partnumbers)? I'm not well "learnt" on electronics yet and I would like to cut down on my trips to Radio Shak as much as possible.

    My system is already 12V all the way through, but currently wired to straight 12V. I have been looking for a good IGN alternative. Thanks!


    thanks,

    Schematic?

    I'm just wondering if the directions to make the actual circuit are really at the bottom of post#1, or if I'm slightly retarded :-)

    I can't find it anywhere! (for the RJ45 wiring needed for wake on LAN solution)

    Yeah great app ;-)

    I use a Danish XP. When I install shutcontrol, it does get installed in C:\Programmer which is the danish equivalent to C:\Program Files. Unfortunately shutcontrol doesn't work, unless I move it to C:\Program Files.

    So, somewhere in the code C:\Program Files is hard coded, instead of using a variable.

    I know, it's a tiny thing, but if you're going through the code, you might as well fix it ;-)

    I'm not sure what your question really is, but the diagram is here, on the first page of this thread.

    To answer my own question, I went by Advance Auto parts and picked up a "light relay". That did the trick and now my WOL works perfectly. Thanks for the great information.
