The KB Conn next to the bios chip is a good source for +5v. I used it to power the 3dfx cooler I stuck on the processor after I couldn't get the KB Conn to work as a PS2 port. Pin 1 is +5v Vcc, and pin 4 is ground, using the pin closest to the bios chip as pin 1. Works great here.
Everything is working OK with my WP. The USB works fine but it takes a few reboots to get it stable. Once I get it stable instead of shutting down the WP I just push the standby button and it goes into standby no problem. That way I don't have to deal witht the reboot hassels when I want to use it again.
Here is my question:
I have the Lasagne CPU fan installed and wired to the 5v power jack. When I go into Standby mode the fan stays ON. Before I solder in a toggle switch, is there another place that I can solder the fan's power lead so that the fan will shut down when I go into standby mode?
OK, all finished. I wired the fan to a mini-on/off switch and mounted it next to the Suspend button. Now I just push the button, flip the fan switch OFF and the WP stays suspended.
A simple movement of the trackball or pressing any key on the keyboard brings it back to life. Flip the fan switch ON and the WP is good to go. USB connection stays on the entire time. No more re-boot hassels!
