    Thanks for the diagram! I went to RadioShack and picked up the correct parts for the relay. The P/Ns for the RadioShack resistors are for the same 10k 1/4w resistors I used in my original switch, so I just reused them. Soldered it all up and... same problem.

    Guess I will give the relay method a shot, because I already have one I can use.

    Edit: I tried the relay and you will never guess what happened... yeah same thing! Is this a timing issue?

    Have you played with the settings in the bios? What is it set to do after "Power Fail"?

    Can you take a movie and post a video of whats happening?

    Bios is set to "Former-Status"

    Movie?? I don't know what that will show.

    Here is a quick summary:
    1. Turn key on accessory position
    2. 5 seconds later the fan begins to spin, PC and LCD turn on.
    3. 5 seconds after this, the PC shuts down, before the BIOS post screen is displayed.

    Alternate:
    1. Turn key on accessory position
    2. 5 seconds later, the fan begins to spin, PC and LCD turn on.
    3. Immediately remove the power switch from the motherboard header
    4. PC boots normally

    I can shut the PC down by plugging the switch back into the board.

    When you have the relay power switch method hooked up. Can you hear the relay click twice or is it just clicking once for the first startup?

    Try setting the BIOS to "Stay Off" and see what that does.
