    Question extending a ribon power switch...or where to get a new one

    My BookPC runs uses a 10 inch ribon cable to connect to the power switch. What is the easiest way to make it about 8 feet longer? Even better would be a whole new power switch that doesnt use ribon cable and has a little better "look" to it. Anyone know a website that has some choices?

    I did this, then reliazed it is way easier to just start on keyboard press or power-on.

    It's in the bios.

    One Problem with the keyboad option. I dont have a keyboard hooked up to it :-) I do have a mouse, but when I turn off the car completely then back on. The computer requires it to manually boot once before I can use a hot key or mouse to turn it on. Thus, i still need a way to extend the power switch
