    The reason i chose this way is that i can eliminate one switch, and my inverter do not survice the crank...i don't know how to make it survice yet...i read and search in this forum for a long time now...but i still confused, it seem like everyone has different opinion doing thing...but anyway will my plan still work?
    How about making a system where the inverter is directly connected to the battery. Inline with the power wire going from the battery to the inverter is a circuit where a 555 circuit throws a relay to connect a terminal and complete the circuit. The 555 would be triggered by the "on" line, and buffered by a capacitor so the "on" must be hot for a second or so before the computer starts. When the power drops off, another signal is sent, this time to the motherboard power header, causing a soft off, with a 555 measuring out enough time to allow the computer to turn off before cutting power to the inverter.

    In parralell with the system mentioned above could be an external button to trigger the inverter power as well as the computer power, such that the computer can be started when the car is in acc position, or turned off in mid drive.

    Hopefully that made some sense
