  • Startup/Shutdown Idea

    This guy uses a BASIC Stamp to control when his PC boots and shuts down. Its a great idea that could replace the power button in your setup.

    BASIC stamp is overkill for a shutdown controller, its cheaper to use PIC microcontroller. A PIC 12C508 can do the same thing for like $1-2.

      I agree, a pic would be the way to go, but Paralax won't put that on thier site!

      It just got me thinking.
