    Question about motherboard on/off switch

    I'm thinking of useing the motherboard from my shuttle pc in my truck. I want to be able to have it turn on with the engin, now if I hook it up to an opus and take off the on/off switch from the motherboard will it automaticly turn on with the engin or will I still need some kind of switch?

    Does the opus have some kind of hookup that goes to the on/off pins on the motherboard? Sorry for all the questions but i'm just trying to picture all this in my head
