    xenarc usb turning on computer?

    My Xenarc touchscreen turns on my computer when I press the power button on the Xenarc. The problem, however, is that it only seems to work sometimes. Any ideas why? Anyone know how the Xenarc does this anyway? I assume it's somehow sending a 5v pulse to the computer through the USB. If so, why is it working intermittently? Is there a way to tie it to a 5v relay to turn on my computer via the ignition lead?

    I'm guessing your got your motherboard to wake up on USB if it's on a usb hud id plug it stright into the pc and then see how that goes.
