For instance, wire in a relay in line and if it senses a power loss on one of the PC power lines it switches, effectively stopping the bags in their place???

I was at my future in-laws in Birmingham this weekend. He's a hot-rodder and hooks me up with his old Rod & Custom magazines. I was reading one and found an ad that piqued my interest.
