    I am thinking in starting my carpc proyect. but one think worris me. the power on and of off the pc.

    Iam planing to us a 300 w converte and then directly into the computer power suply.

    I want to be in control of the power on and off switch in my computer. just like my desck top that if I want to use my pc I have to push the pc botton to turn it on .

    I want to install one swich to turn on my pc and turn off.
    and another swich to turn onand off the 300 w converter.

    I dont want to use the the car acc key swicht for my pc.

    if any one can send a diagram or tell me more about this subject I apriciated alot

    I like tu run my pc only with this swichs i dont think I need the car key acc on to start the pc

    you can run the pc direct to power, and then use a button loacted just about anywhere. the only problem is even when a pc is off, it will draw some sort of power. long period of times and cold weather and that draw will drain your battery. Not only do the dc-dc power supplies with the startup shutdown controllers built into them start and stop your pc, they monitor voltage and will hard off the pc to make sure you dont drain your battery.
    Just wire invertor direct to the battery(dont foget to get the correct wire gauge and a fuse good enough for the invertor) put a switch on it and wire the pc like a normal with a switch. I guess if you turn the invertor off by switch it wouldnt drain the battery. Not what i would do, but to each his own.

        Just extend the wires for the power switch you're going to use and place it where you want it.
        Unless I'm missing something crucial, that's all you need to do.
        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
        How about the Wiki?
