  • laptop power and car alarm?

    hey guys. soon to install my car pc and also a clifford avant guard g5 alarm, has any body managed to wire the 2 together? i start my truck in the morning, stop about 6 times a day for an hour or so and work from it so its unlocked then park up at night. was thinking of connecting the laptop to turn on and boot up when i disarm the alarm in the morning then switch in and out of standby when i turn the engine on and off all day then shut down again when i rearm the alarm. i know the clifford has some sort of link you can buy for a pc and also has some trigger wires that you can change the time via the remote fob but thats about it. will prob use the power button for on and off by soldering into the switch and the switch that senses when you shut the lid for standby. any ideas? thanks!
