Change computer Auto-on settings

Auto-on is an important feature of any industrial computer, which provides the automated mechanism to restart the computer after power failure has occurred. However not all customers really need the computer to restart automatically in such cases.
fit-PC3 BIOS can be configured to determine computer behavior after power failure has occurred: AMD -> Chipset Settings -> AC Loss Control Settings

  • Power On: Computer will turn-on automatically once the power is returned
  • Stay Off: Computer will remain off when the power is returned
  • Last State: Computer will keep it last state once the power is returned (will remain off if was in shut-down during the power loss, will auto-on if was on before the power failure)
