LarkBox: Automatic boot on power?

Hi everyone,

Is there a way of setting the LarkBox to immediately boot once it receives power? So it automatically reboots in case the power goes out. I need that functionality for an electronic signage application.

So do I and no matter where I checdk in the BIOS I can’t find it - can someone from Chuwi please respond? I live in one of MANY areas around the world where short power failures are not uncommon - my PC defaults to power on but the Chuwi seems to default to power off. Can we change this?

Same issue here and it is quite an important requirement to us as well.

Waiting for Chuwi team response, this issue is very important for me as well.
Autoboot on power is required to use LarkBox as home automation core or small home server.

I wrote to Chuwi tech supportr about boot on power up - and wake on lan (assuming a USB hardwird LSN addition) neither of which work. O don;t think they understood that these are separate isssues as all I got back was:

"Sorry, this machine doesn’t have the function you need

So either there is a language issue or the Larkbox is essentially useless for any kind of remote or headless access. Until I hear more - that, sadly is where things stand - forget home automation as well… does anyone know any differnet, or would Chuwi like to respond in here?

I’ve found solution, but it is hardware. You need to solder wire to power button (you should be very accurate, parts are very small and located close to each other). Connect button through capacitor and resistor to ground. I used 47uf capacitor and 1.5k resistor. When power appears capacitor is empty, and simulates pressed button. After short time capacitor becomes charged and simulate like button is released. Resistor is used to discharge capacitor when power off.

It is your own risk, and after this action you lose warranty.
