    Here's another one

    It uses a 16F628 PIC (although it's easy enough to change it to a smaller/cheaper 12C508). The good thing about this design is that it senses the voltage on the +12V and turns on the output relay only when it reaches 13.5V or so (the exact voltage can be trimmed using a trimpot). This prevents your PC from rebooting as the voltage drops to 8V during cranking.

    The bad thing is that you need a PIC programmer and other tools build the circuit.
