But this may not work at all. The 12v on the Opus might not be rated high enough to do this, plus, I might loose the ignition sense and off delay features. I guess I wonít really know Ďtil I get the Opus unit and see how it works.

    Does this sound feasible to you, Jeff? See what a pain this is not having the supply INSIDE the cabinet? I would be in a better position to tell you how much yours would be worth, after I get the Opus and see what it does. What Iím after is a smooth power-up of the computer when I turn on the ignition. When I shut off the ignition, I want the computer minus the display to stay powered up for about an hour, and then a smooth, automatic shutdown. The thinking is that this will do two things, I hope: Allow me to transfer files over the wireless net without having run back out and shut everything off afterward, and prevent a boot cycle from just having to run into a store for something.

    A bulkhead connector is same a regular connector, but usually with little tabbies to hold it in a slot in the case.

    I never thought of doing it that way. I would think you would loose the functionality of the opus if you only use the 12v line, but I am not sure. I would e-mail or call Kris at opus and ask him.

    What would a good price for it be?
    hmm, i dont know what a good price would be. The opus is rather expensive. I bet more people would buy it if it was lower in price than the opus. Is there any room to fit the shutdown controller built in? would you offer any type of warranty?
