    Sure, you could use IR and have it shutdown with one button. That's easy. The thing is you have to remember to do that, and (if you have an inverter) remember to shut that off whenever you get out of the car. It gets old after a while Not to mention it's kinda of ghetto. A system that turn on and off WITH the car is what we ultimately want. No fussing around with switches constantly and having to think about it.

    Nor I... The problem is getting there.. The more I think about it, software shutdowns should not be a factor..

    Seems a hardware only means of doing it is the best. Just a matter of thinking through.. Being able to shutdown the comp, kill the power to the inverter, THEN turn the dang thing back on with the key.

    Now, I know shutdown hardware exists for ATX boards, and I know they can also kill the power to the inverter, but does any one designed that you know of also turn the power back on with the key?
