Windows Help and Tips
is the codeword behind Shuttle's new Spacewalker ME64
FlexATX Slot-1/Socket 370 All-in-One mainboard. Designed for
the budget PC market this mainboard is sure to find favor with System
Integrators, OEM's and even a few do-it-yourselfers. Built around Intel's
810E chipset on the new FlexATX form factor offers a ton of features and
comes with what has to be one of the best manuals ever conceived for a
mainboard - at least in my experience.
The ME64 ships along with a Universal Retention Mechanism for Slot-1, an ATA/66
IDE cable, a FDD ribbon cable, a 9-pin COM port connector, and it's excellent
manual. Shuttle has also included a CD with all of the software drivers
for the i810E including VGA and audio drivers.

Micro/Flex ATX Form Factor
System board conforms to the Micro/Flex ATX specification.
Board dimensions: 228mm × 190mm (9.0" x 7.5")
Dual Function Power Button - The system can be in one of two states,
one is Suspend mode and the other is Soft-Off
mode. Pushing the power
button for less
than 4 seconds places the system into Suspend mode.
the power button is pressed for longer than 4 seconds, the system
the Soft-Off mode.
Keyboard/Mouse Power-On - This mainboard implements a special
jumper to enable a system power-on function
by keyboard or PS/2 mouse.

a network card that supports this function to wake
up the system via the
Modem Ring Power-On - The system can be powered on automatically
by activation of the modem ring.
Voltage Monitoring - Monitors various voltages of key elements, such as
the CPU, and other critical system voltage levels
to ensure stable current
reach to mainboard
System voltages include Vcore/ VTT on
and +5V, +12V, -5V, -12V on system.
