    Use an Opus power supply whih powers up the mobo on ignition, and shuts it down when the ignition is turned off.

    For ATX motherboards it has to be momentary.

    In LA we had this place called All Electornics about 30 minutes away from me. I wanted to do a linux computer in a old apple case, and I wanted some of those military style switches. So I went to that place and got myself some, and they work. I even wired up my CD-ROM so that it doesn't have a button in the front.
