Well, I went searching the forum and found nothing, so maybe I could get some help from my fellow flight simmers.
It seems that whenever I start a flight at the gate with my engines off, power lasts for maybe 10 minutes before everything goes dark. I know this is a simulation of the backup battery. But, is there a way to crank the APU so I can have power on the ground? I use mostly freeware, with the payware being the SMS Boeing and Airbus packs, so none of them have an apu power switch (that I'm aware of).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
(edited for spelling)

They dont have APU simulated. So no there isnt a way to fire it up. The best way with the SMS is to use the battery which will last you about 5-7 mins. That should be enough time to get the autopilot and GPS programmed
You cant have your cake and eat it... What the hells the point in having it then!!!
