Greetings all

Now that (I'm sure) there are quite a few people running this board in a
frontend, perhaps some help in getting suspend to RAM working might be
available! Suspend to disk is not really an option as the f/e is diskless
- I boot over the network

The m/b I have has the link to enable USB power but no internal PSU. I'm
using a Minibox pico-120 PSU
(http://www.itx.co.nz/product_info.php?cPath=25&products_id=334) and an
external 12v brick and I've a feeling there is something missing with this
combination when in suspend mode.

My experiments a few months ago got me as far as suspending and getting
back up with the power button but when in the suspend state there was no
flicker from the USB Hauppauge IR receiver so I was never able to get it
up using the remote. Even when using the power button there was a fair
chance that it would reboot rather than recover from S3.

In particular I'm after BIOS settings as well as basics for shutdown and
restart. I think I may have to check the PSU connector for volts in the
correct place when in suspend as well!! Can anyone advise on pin numbers

Cheers all
