    Wire it to an ACC-controlled line?
    Use a relay to turn it on/off with ignition?
    Power it w/ the PC's PSU?

    Lots of options.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I guess i had confused....i mean...when the tft power is on...the power button must be pressed to turn on....so how can i make it to turn on automatically instead of pressing the button ?

    If you have a lilliput monitor, you can set it up to auto turn on after power is applied-check the LCD section for more details-- I think it is in a sticky...

    then you might need to talk to curious(a member here)http://www.curioustech.net/. i know he has done some small actuation boards like this before for other members(notably, for hijack--who needed a board for a camera display that pressed a button 3 times every time power was applied), but am really not sure what all he offers..

    You née a momentary contact relay. Just do a quick Google search for 12volt ones.
