    Its relay that shuts off after a few seconds.

    The coil is energized until the cap finishes to charge. Once you stop giving power to 86 the resistor removes the the charge the capacitor built up. This way the next time you give power to 86 the capacitor can build up a charge again.

    on all 3 laptops that I have opened up, the power switch had 5 or six points on it. It turned out I would always have to short opposite corners. For example: by shorting the top left and bottom right, the power would come on. Heres a pic from the thread I posted earlier:

    first i tested which leads to use on the power switch, then i sautered 22 gauge wire, ran the wire outside the laptop case, add a connector to the 2 wires, ran wire to dash and connected it to onstar switch (i dont use onstar, so thought i would make use of their buttons)

    My solution is like Shotgunefx's:

    I then mounted the pushbutton switch in a convenient place.
