Post Automatic Boot when power applied
Hi All

When I originally installed the Fitlet-B everytime the power was applied, the unit would boot.
However with the latest batch of Fitlet-i I need to press the power switch everytime.
Because these are inside industrial control boxes to which operators don't have access
this is a real nuisance.

Is there a solution to this.

Regards

EDIT:
Note that my Bios is as follows and does not have the Restore on AC Power Loss option.
AMI 4.6.5.4
Build Date 06/27/2015

fitlet-i latest BIOS is SBCFLT_0.08.08 (not 4.6.5). Also, fitlet-i features HW auto on and is not BIOS dependent.
Are you sure you ask about fitlet?

Hi All

Yes it is definitely a Fitlet-i Barebone.
However, I misread the BIOS info.
The "Core Version" is 4.6.5.4
But the Bios is SBCFLT_.08.4

Interestingly, if I turn the power OFF for a few minutes the Fitlet will power up when power is re-applied.
Then leaving it in power Off mode for 10 minutes, it failed again.

Note that the power has been applied in previous times for a full day during testing.

Regards

What is the time duration between power off and power resume, when the PC won't turn on automatically?

I've a similar issue. I'm running Ubuntu in Fitlet PC, and once I press 'Shutdown' button, the system performs the shutdown, but then it reboots automatically. Is there any solution to this?

Hi All

I had 4 units with this problem.
Last Friday I received 4 replacement cmos batteries and sofar have fitted
3 of them. The first time you turn the power ON after that, it still does not boot.
But once I set the date and time it seems to boot each time the power is applied. Will watch it for a while and see how long it lasts.

It is REALLY DISAPPOINTING that the manufacturers can't be bothered to post here and say what the problem is or was, and what the cure is.
