my eeepc 900ha had a magnet (that i removed) in the screen's bezel used for sensing if the lid is closed.
this pic is from this eeeuser thread:
sorry one last question for you. so i soldered wires onto the switch and for no am going to just press a switch to turn on the eeepc. ive noticed that you cant do this unless the lid is open. i was wondering if you by anychance knew where the lid switch is so i can trip it and make it think that the lid is always open. Thanks in advance!
so if i remove that magnet, it will think the lid is always open?
any pics of the mimo screen installed in the headrest??

lacning74 - How are you powering the LCD now? Using the secondary 12V?
Also - regarding soldering the ACPI wires to the power button, does it matter which lead I solder the green and white wires too or is there a specific +/- on the power button leads? Thanks!
as for soldering, it doesn't matter which one. it's just a relay that completes the circuit.
well, i don't know why i didn't try this earlier, but i set my Carnetix 2140 on standby mode. now i got instant resume.
the Carnetix 2140 will keep power going to maintain standby as long as the current draw is less than 0.5amps and the car battery level is good. i wasn't sure if it would work with my laptop since it draws too much power when plugged in with the laptop's battery to maintain it's charge. i thought of just letting the laptop battery maintain standby, but the laptop battery quickly drains overnight.
well, i removed the laptop battery, and standby mode works! interestingly, while the laptop was on, the amp draw (as monitored by the PSUmoni app) dropped from around 3 amps to just 1.1 amps after removing the battery (my usb monitor was not plugged in). i was wasting power by keeping my laptop battery in for all this time.
i'll see if standby holds up well this week. this better justifies the use of my "intelligent" Carnetix.
hey lacning could i trouble you for one last bit of help? i just ordered a Directed 528T Pulse Timer with SPDT Relay and i was hoping to get some advice from you on how to hook it up. if you by any chance have some pictures of what you did or anything at all i would greatly appreciate it. thanks in advance!
