    computer Power switch connected to ignition.

    How can I connect the ignition key to turn the computer on when the car starts and shut the computer down properly when ignition is turned off? Did anyone do that already?

    If you're planning to use the Opus, then that is one of it's features.

    If you're using a case with an internal 60W PSU, then look at the Carnetix product linked above
