    Remote power button....

    Where would you buy such a thing?

    I don't want to relocate the one that's in my computer case. It's kinda really built in there to stay.

    I don't have a spare system laying around I can hack up for parts either.

    Where could I find just the momentary power button, preferably with an LED in it that I could convert into a remote button? Is there and internet store that sells such minor parts individually like that?

    get a momentary switch from Radio Shack. Mount it where you like and run some wires from it to your machine and use the same connector to attach it to your motherboard. Just cut off the 2 pin connector from your previous switch or another computer somewhere and use it.

    The Rat Shack isn't that cheap for parts but if that's all you need then it may be your best bet if you can't find a donor one from junked computer case. Check your local dump or ask at a computer repair shop. They usually have plenty of junked systems piled up in the back. Shipping charges or minimum orders online would cost more.

    Is there a limit to how long the wires on the power button and LED's can be before they won't draw enough power?

    My remote button location would be about 15 feet of wire from the computer. That's 15 feet out and 15 feet back.

    I really doubt there would be enough resistance in the wires to cause a problem.

    Skipjacks, you should do a search prior to posting. I posted PC Power Switch w/ Wired Remote back a few months ago.

    I searched. I came up empty. The product you listed came up in my search. It's not what I'm looking for. Hence my own thread.

    If this isn't it, than your description is wrong. Are you looking for wireless or wired? Are you just looking for spare parts? Spare parts and project box from Radio Shack and use ethernet cable to wire it up.

    You could also look into these remote systems.
