    Load SD on startup with Navi?

    Is this possible? It seems cumbersome to wait for the computer to boot, than click on SD, than on Navi. Even if it just loaded SD on startup, that would be cool. I could remove everything I didn't need on startup for a faster load.

    I really wish there was a way to run this without windows, but I realize this isn't possible. I believe if I set things to hibernate, it'll drain my battery. btw, I'm running a celeron D w/ 512mb ram, 60gb laptop drive, and opus psu.

    Tav, time to do some testing. I too was worried about draining my battery but through testing found that it was no problem at all with hibernating. Wanting an even better response I tried standby and have never looked back. My system comes back on and is ready in 4-5 seconds after ignition (and that is a generous guess, seems instantaneous really). I've been running it this way for about 8 months and I've also left it in the garage for 3-4 days at a time without a single glitch.

    Have faith in your Opus, they really do provide protection.

    the setting for the opus to put the computer on standby is a jumper right? I honestly forget. I'll have to check that out.

    No, that's setup in Windows. The Opus simply sends the signal to the power button headers of your motherboard.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    The jumper you are thinking of is the time delay for how long to stay powered after receiving a signal to power off.

    Just go to Control Panel > Power Options > Advanced Tab > Power Buttons/When I Press The Power Button On My Computer and drop down the list and select Standby. Good to go.

    If you get any weird problems it could be because of options in your BIOS but cross that bridge if you have to.
