  • Inverter Power

    When I get out of my car I want to be able to press the computer power button that makes the computer go into Hibernation and automaticaly shutdown after. But I dont want to have to stay and wait for it to shut down then turn the power inverter off. Any suggestions?

        My problem is I want to press the button on the computer which sends a command to the computer to go into hibernation and then shutdown. But I want to be able to have the Power Inverter shut off after the computer shuts down. I was thinking of the timer in the Radio Shack catalog that can do automatic stops power form the power line in a certain amount of time after the buttoin on it is pressed. I think I will try this. So when I get out of my car I just hit two buttons and the computer shuts down and the timer begins. Then when I get in the car press the copmputer button and the timer off button so it will open the circuit/Power to the inverter. Any comments or suggestions?

          Will your shutdown controller work with a dc-ac power invertor like most people use to power the computer?

            My shutdown controller gives you a controlled +12V output using its on board 30A relay.

            Take that output, feed it to your DC to DC converter, OR feed it to your DC-AC inverter. It doesn't matter.
