i've been using my netbook to source my carputer for a few months now. my only complain is booting up the system whenever I start my car.
I've read articles from other sites like mp3car.com and here as well but no direct way to automatically boot up my netbook externally. I guess I've been in denial all these months that I may find a safer solution, I'm starting to believe I was wrong.
I've also searched the bios if there's a "boot on power" with the Asus, but i found nothing. I also tried the hack where my netbook "wakes" upon LAN, it works, but it'll just heat up my machine while i'm away. My only option is breaking into the netbook and hotwiring the power with a momentary switch.
if there's someone here who have tried hacking their machine (specifically the Asus EEE netbooks) with an external power switch, can anyone guide me to where to start?
My issues are: - Some hidden switch that disables power up when the netbook is closed (some sort of magnet?) - Which part of the netbook should I solder or glue?
If you have other suggestions, feel welcome to comment. Thanks!
