na its 2 wires, usually named POWER SW or PSW
I am running desktop pc hardware with a dc to ac converter. I plan to put a power (toggle) switch inline on the inverter power wire, leave the inverter on and just use the toggle switch to turn it on/off. But you know these newer pc's, once the power current is turned off, you have to manually hit the "on" button to turn it back on. How can I wire this pc to "stay" on and just use the toggle switch? (The power switch on the pc has 5 or 6 wires, so I wasn't just going to jump wires to accomplish this).
I saw no threads on this...

Yeah, I see that option on my home pc. But I will be shutting windows down before I turn the toggle switch off, in which case the pc will not power up/boot up when I turn the toggle switch back on.Originally Posted by noam
So I need to somehow hardwire it "on" ?
OK, I'll try it...Originally Posted by noam
Wire the toggle right to the 'pwrsw" (or like... power switch) on the motherboard. That way when the computer is on and you throw the toggle, it'll start a windows shutdown. When the computer is off, it will boot up normally (you could always et it to hibernate) However, it will keep draining your battery in such a set up.
See this thread for my soulution (I want the same thing but I'm using a 12v input PSU) Note, the CNX-P1260 can be found here: CarNetix
OK, dumb question , please answer it anyway. How do I get in the BIOS again. I tried the F2 key on boot up and the the delete key, I just plain forgotOriginally Posted by muldrick
