  • auto start/shutdown with tower switch

    i have a computer tower with a button on the front for start/shutdown, when i push the button the computer will soft shutdown. my question is, would i somehow be able to hook this button up with a relay and a vehicals acc. port to control start and shutdown when the car is turned on/off?

    (when i start the car the comp starts and vice versa?)

    That's build into the Opus power supplies....
    There are other products you can buy (or make, if you're feeling truly handy) that will accomplish what you're looing for.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

        look up 'pulse relay' and the various startup shutdown controllers. There is one in a remote laptop startup/shutdown thread
