Quoted from rubberducks:
Does anyone have any fixes to share re: the PC powering on automatically when the main power switch on the pinball machine is flipped?
Initially, the Danesi board which indicates state of power, PC and switches (P-ROC?) with the LEDs was taking nearly a minute to flip the power on to the PC, but the PC did boot automatically. I thought this length of time was faulty or incorrect.
Now it's flipping the power to the PC almost instantaneously, but the PC isn't turning on automatically. Only if you press the button to manually do it on the Danesi board, or the PC itself.
Engineer reckons the pulse time is too short.
Anyone any ideas? Is it fixable, or is the board faulty?
First, I'd ask Scott directly. But also, I've had a similar problem and my solution was to shut everything down, move the USB cables to different slots on the computer. Unplug the power cord from the computer and let it sit for a while. Plug the power back in and turn it back on. It's weird how it just seems to get out of sync with itself. I also have a Belkin power strip that detects when the computer is off and cuts power to the monitor and amp. Sometimes I've had to take that out of the loop. Since I replaced the failed SSD, it has been booting better overall.
