    A basic shutdown controller would just turn the power to the inverter via relay and press the power button on the motherboard...this start up the PC.

    On turning off the ignition (after a delay) the power button on the motherboard is again pressed...this then shutdown the PC. After a few second (enough to shutdown the PC properly) the power to the inverter is then cut off.

    Hope that thats clear

    Im currently in R&D of a new ATX ****down Controller
    This is the funniest thing I've read in a long time! I have been laughing uncontrollably for the most part of half an hour.

    I can't decide whether its a laxative or an anti-diarrheal!

    Cheers,

    (****down controller) Whoops my bad! gotta say ricki im impressed with your controller, if it wasnt for the fact i would like to control mine via the comms/usb port for adjustable timed shutdowns etc, then i would almost definatly go for yours. to be honest i havnt really thought about any of the features youve mentioned but they do serve there purpose. do you have any objections to me using similiar features on mine?, such as amp control for one.

    The original design must have evolved 3 times now, lots of thinking has gone into it.

    Sure you can put a wheel on your car..I cant stop you
