    Why do you want it on the power. If its for the servicething use a switch on the ACC, not the power line. That's what i'm doin. This uses little current. Using a switch on the power line is only if you want to completely cut power off the PC, which is not your case. you only want it not to turn on during service.

    Edit: sorry JimmyFitz didn't see your post, but anyways, What JimmyFitz said.

    Okay.. okay.. splitting hairs here..
    this 9mA is drawn even if the PC is turned completely off (shutdown). As long as it has power connected to it. this is needed for the momentary power switch to function.

    i wouldnt want it to naturally shut down. I'd only use the switch in instances where i needed to immediately KILL the computer... for instance gettin pulled over and having my iguidance not load immediately lol

    Kill screen power. Still one switch. It is already there.
