Default Auto Power On? - 08-12-2011, 10:03 PM

Does anyone know of a way to Make a Mini 9 turn on as soon as it see's power from the power cable?

I have the 9 set up in my Evo to do data logging from the ODBII. As soon as I turn it on it will go into EvoScan and do what it is supposed to do but I would like it to come on as soon as I turn on the car without hitting the power button.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I have never seen a notebook/netbook with that feature.

I am not saying its a standard feature just wondering if it can be done.

Thoughts are:

1) Relay to Power on switch. Don't want to go this route though. I have way to many gauges and devices tapped off of every imaginable and some such as the gauges as well as the ODBII are monitored by the laptop.

2) WOL, I don't think 9's offer this but have no issue running a cat 5 to it and then if it sees 5v or whatever turns on. again relay and DC /DC convertor would be involved though.

You need BIOS support for this. Desktops have it.
