    Put a switch (NOT a momentary one) on one wire of the two pins (cut the wire in 1/2 and connect both points to the switch). If the switch is in the ON position then the computer will receive all of the startup/shutdown commands. If its off, it won't receive any

    ok what you mean by a non momentary switch. e.g. i have a oem switch in my car which has 4 pins underneath it and you push the switch down it moves down from one side and raises from the other. So is this switch alright?

    Its a bit like this
