Relocating computer power button
Okay, here's the deal. Using a laptop as the computer. Took it apart, found the button, used a multimeter and determined the following. THe button has 4 leads. When the button is up, each pair goes straight across while when it is pressed down, they switch. Please see the attached diagram. It is horrible, but it gets the job done.
Now, I want to relocate the button so it's in my dash, so I can boot the computer when I want and turn it off when I want. I have this button from Radio Shack:
Can I use this button to replace the one in the "schematic"? If so, how? If not, what kind of button do I need? THanks!
Relocating a computer power button
I am looking to move the power button for my computer to my dash, I do not use the auto startup feature or shutdown feature becuse I don't use the computer all the time so I am just using an old switch from a computer to the MoBo for now but it won't mount in the dash correctly. I am wondering what type of switch I would use. I see many at radio shack. Anyone know what p/n would be a good one for me to use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
