I think you should be able to alter the behavior with the 0xf2 and 0xf4
registers in the LDN4 block.
Right now mainboard/google/panther/devicetree.cb has this:
device pnp 2e.4 on # Environment Controller
io 0x60 = 0x700
io 0x62 = 0x710
irq 0x70 = 0x09
irq 0xf2 = 0x20 <<<<< PCR 1
irq 0xf4 = 0x0 <<<<< PCR 2
irq 0xfa = 0x12
0xf2 bit 5 and 0xf4 bit 5,6 should have some effect on this behavior.
F4<5> and F2<5>:
1 X : Always ON
0 1 : Memory
0 0 : Always OFF
And then F4<6> seems to be the bit that gates the PWRON pulse from the
superio and lets the southbridge control the default behavior.
I think if you set "irq 0xf2 = 0x20" (in theory if the datasheet is right
F2<5> doesn't matter for always on) and "irq 0xf4 = 0x20" and then do
call it8772f_ac_resume_southbridge() (which is setting 0xf4=0x60) it should
let the superio control the behavior and always power on when AC Is
One other thing to try is to remove the RTC battery and let it reset the
superio state after you have things configured as desired.

took a look at the IT8772F data sheet (well, 8712, closest I could find:
) and it seems that
there's no setting of the PCR1/2 registers that will force #PSON high when
AC power is applied - it's always conditional on the previous system power
I'd be happy for someone else to take a look and tell me I'm misreading

I was wondering if it's possible to have Panther (Asus ChromeBox -
Haswell/Lynxpoint) power on when AC power connected regardless of the
previous power state. Currently, the box will power on if AC power is lost
and the device was powered on, but not if powered off. I have a use case
where it would be convenient to be able to power on the boxes by toggling
AC power (eg, the boxes are not within physical reach). I modified the
CMOS default setting for 'power_on_after_fail' to be enabled and verified
its status with nvramtool. I also tried modifying lpc.c/smihandler.c in
the southbridge code to force MAINBOARD_POWER_ON (rather than
MAINBOARD_POWER_KEEP) in all cases, to no avail.
Am I approaching this from the wrong angle, or is it perhaps not possible
with these boxes?
This might be due to the SuperIO instead of the Southbridge. Panther
does call it8772f_ac_resume_southbridge() which *should* be making the
southbridge the one responsible for the power behavior when AC is applied,
but as a first test you could try removing that call to see if the default
SuperIO behavior is closer to what you want.
Hi Duncan, I tried removing the call as suggested, but it didn't change
the behavior at all. Any thoughts as to where to look next?
