I'm using a loopback adapter with a relay to power on my eeepc. The adapter works just fine. If the relay is already energized and I touch the two leads of the ethernet cable to the relay it turns on just fine. But if I connect the leads with the relay not powered then power it on it does not turn on the pc. My theory, is that the electronic pulse created when I energize the relay is somehow interfering with the function. Does this make sense? Maybe I can use a transister instead or a diode protected relay. Any ideas?
