I bypassed all the cable issuses buy cutting the plug off one end, quick pin check and wired it direct to the driver (built in optos). not pretty or a long term solution but good for initial testing :naughty:
I had no intention of using the laptop for "production", it was merely for testing and satisfying my impatience while I was waiting for the desktop. Understand 100% mel, as you say laptops are designed to work but save power when idle, and in order to do so tend to cause issues.

Ok, I would need a sowester and hat to reach my shed tonight due to the adverse (perhaps not unusual) weather conditions, so it's a night of for the build. Perhaps i'll read the mach manual instead
