Power up front (laptop in back)
I have an older Dell lattitude laptop under the rear seat of my 2001 Silverado.
I need power up at the dash to power a hub and the Xenarc (still being installed). I also want to power a dvd player up front.
If I was using a regular PC I'd have a power supply that I could tap off. Not so easy with the laptop.
The laptop is mounted into a docking station. I intend to tap into the docking station power switch to contol power on up front. Is there someplace in the docking station or using one of the docking station ports that I can get 12v and 5v to run up front. This would (presumably) give me control so that when the laptop powers off so do the other devices.
