I have searched throughout the net and found nothing other than presss release information, Cyberlink's website included.

Seems that Power Cinema is a chip on the motherboard. So, unless a laptop ODM decides to put it on their board, you're basically out of luck. If you're looking for hardware specs, I'm sure you need to pay through the nose and sign an NDA before you see anything.

Plays CD/MP3/DVD/View Photos -- without loading full Operating System

Another nice thing about Power Cinema used with the Sentia is that it boots up at a slower clock speed for DVD and media play only to save on battery.
I have version 1 Sentia which does not have the P button and did not come with Power Cinema.
