    ACC-->|-----cap+resistor--relay--power button
    PC --->|--/
    got a schematic possibly? I'm a visual person....

    TIA

    Can't you just set the BIOS to start the computer on power failure? Then, whenever the PC is supplied with power to the power supply, it will turn on. Oh, that assumes that your BIOS supports that feature.

    Nobody said it was anything new... I was asking if my diagram was right, because I used your diagram, and a diagram from two other people, to combine it into one. All I'm looking for is advice on whether I have it right or not.

    Cheers.

    yea, and i'm finding that it won't power on automatically when running with an inverter. a buddy of mine built a regulator an is running 12vdc into his and it powers up automatically....

    I think i may jus stick with a button to power it on, especially with the colder weather on it's way. I wanna start letting the car warm up before i go turning stuff on lol

    Ummmm, so, i went to wire up a switch to test the generic UPS and it didn't work. I took a wire from Pin 8 (+5v) to a switch and one from Pin 4 to the other side of the switch, and got nothing at all. So, i decided to test my com port to see what pin i was getting voltage on, and I tested all of them and only got one wire with +12v, and one with -12v and nothing else...I'm stumped here

    I believe it was pin 7 that had +12v and I can't remember which had the -12v. I'd really love to see this work......

    I got it to work using a 5v line from an old AT power supply i had lying around, cause i didn't wanna open up my carputer yet again. I already have a 12v line out of the case, can i use it, or is 12v too much??
