    OH... I see the angle you are looking at, but still the J8 serves as a pass thru to the motherboard which in turn shuts down the power supply... so J6 wires to the motherboard's "power button" header and J8 is then routed to the power button... that is the purpose of the parallel...

    I agree, there is no "switch" on the power supply to shut it off... this is controlled by the green wire (somewhere near the middle of the connector) which is handled by the motherboard...

    HA! i used the search to find this so you cant say i tarded out like a n00b.

    questioin though: since this is just an ignition switch...all you have to do is run like 14 gauge off the battery to the switch and like 14 to the ign and the m1 right? wouldnt need anything big becasue its not powering the m1 itself..its getting that from the J11. where would you wire it up? solder it to the back of the fuse for the ign?

    could you just ground it out instead of going to the ign and that way you could just flick the switch to turn it on whenever you want?

    I have always gotten my "acc" wire from the stereo harness... the downside is that lead often drops power during the crank, BUT the M1 requires that the "switch" wire go to zero for five seconds before the shutdown begins... so if you are parked and enjoying, cranking will not reset the system... 14 ga is more than ample... you use the word "ground", but the ignition wire is going to be a positive, which is what the M1 wants - so you could put in a toggle switch that has center off and SPDT, then you'd have three options from the drivers seat... 1-ON (regardless of key), 2-OFF (regardless of key) and 3-ON with key... 3 would be your everyday location, but you could get home, flip the switch to 1-ON and the turn the car off... let your wifi sync your files then come out later and flip the switch back to #3... and when at the car wash you could just use position #2 to keep those pesky fingers from exploring...

    best of luck...
