    Peace,

    I believe you need a line emulator, ring generator or other circuit to produce the approx. 90vac 20-60hz ring signal.

    jeese like half this thread's words were "NOOB".... hm... it IS the newb forum though...

    Searching isn't always best, otherwise forums would have no point b/c people would have to look instead of specialized help... and people (cough the guys that half their posts are just negative "NOOB" accusations (^^^) would have.. well... less posts to brag about!!!

    lmao thats my two-cents..

    But seriously I'm going to try and use a laptop and it took me 20 minutes to find info thats half-way worthwhile.

    lmao... i dunno I just felt compelled to say this

    Hopefully, you used the terms "Laptop" and "Shutdown". It would have gotten you this result: SDC's

    The best defense is a good offense aye

    Unfortunatly my lappy has a seperate board (that the buttons are soldered directly onto) that pushes onto pins on the mainboard. No luck for me, haha. Lifebook B btw.

    I DO appreciate the usefull info though.

    I think the best way, and possibly the way I'm gonna do it is with a linksys WRT54g or WRT54gs router with an upgraded firmware (hacked) that upon start up sends a lan wake up signal to the specified computer... do a search for "WOL" and "WRT54g"... a little bit more expensive, and bulkier but it gives you more options... like a portable wireless hotspot...

    Incidently I actually own that router... But My wireless g usb adapter (wusb54g) shuts off when the pc hibernates.

    ~being a usb adapter it won't work for this - does anyone know of any software to keep a usb port/touchscreen "Awake" during hibernation so you can wake it up as you would with a ps2 mouse (fyi my lappy has win2000pro)
