          Sorry for not specifying my goal. Well, the amp is currently connected to remote on.(Ignition on->amp on). I don't want my computer to turn on everytime I turn my ignition, so amp will be directly connected to amp. When I turn on the amp, remote connected to relay will connect 12+V to inverter from car battery. I don't know much about relay stuff....I kinda guessed this:There's coil inside of the relay. Whenever power applies to the coil, coil becomes electro magnetic. I will attract the circuit, thus connecting the line.......is this correct??? I just guessed from the diagram on relay.
          If I am wrong, please correct me...I don't want to blow up anything....

              All I wanted to do is: turn on the inverter whenever I turn the ignition when the switch is ON. cut the power of inverter when I flip the switch to OFF. This way I won't drain my battery when I forget to turn off my inverter. I have 98 Accord. I don't know if there's going to be any power loss issue with amp and computer running at the same time.
              Now, can this work?

                Depending on the size of your inverter and the power consumption of your computer, you might have to use a relay to turn the inverter on and off..

                  1. Take power of the ACC-Line (12v , and is only powered when key is on ACC
                  2. You are gonna use this line to switch the relay to ON
                  3. Between these 2 (Key-Switch and Relay) you put you On/Off switch

                  ACC-----ON/OFF_switch-----RELAY

                  And the relay switches the power-cable which runs from your battery to your inverter.

                  This way it should work how you want it to work: Able to manually turn On/Off the computer, but In case you forget to turn it off, it still turns off when you take the key out

                  hope this helps you out !
