Standard Bosche (sp) type automobile relay.
You CAN'T put this relay inside any LCD monitor.
To do this mod, you have to run 2 wires from the power button to outside the case where you put the relay.
Yes, that a circuit that will "Push" the power button for you.
ive just had a idea. Im going to be using the M1-ATX psu and it has a additional power on so im gona wire that to the switch and it should power it on when the computer comes on. but if thats works you could use it with any strt up/ shutdown controller that sends a pulse to the mobo. ill update this in a day or two when i get the M1-ATX.
that is a diode, a 1n4001 diode should work fine. that protects the lcd from a voltage spike that occurs when the relay de-energizes.
Is that Diode built into the bosch relay? Can I use a regular automotive relay from Autozone for this?
And because I'm a noob at actual electronic components, what would it look like on the package at Radio Shack? The titles of the resistor, cap and diode? I love to solder, but this will be my first time working with resistors and such.
