    Is there a way to completely stop & lock a Win7 laptop hard drive and at the same time use the laptop ram to play an audiobook while driving?
  2. it is called an iPod.

    Running an OS in memory is a really fragile task.

    Get a SSD or buy a $40 12V>>120V power inverter.

    What you are asking is possible - but it is one of those "if you have to ask you can't (afford, understand, pull it off, etc.)" type things.

    Do you have a reason for wanting this other than not draining your laptop battery?
  3. It seems that playing an audiobook is not a good reason to use a laptop in the car. You need to flip up the screen and such.

    How about some iPod-like devices? I am sure they have made some playback devices that takes audio files from a USB thumb drive or a SD card or sync-up/download to it via a USB port.
