    Power Supply for a T41

    Webmaster,

    I have sent you a couple of emails requesting a power supply built. I was wondernig if i sent you a spare AC adapter that i have for the laptop, could you create a power supply with a connector that would plug right into my laptop?

    I am hoping to avoid the teardown, and soldering of my laptop.

    Not sure what's happened with the emails, but I don't actually build or work with power supplies. The module I build doesn't supply power to anything, but mearly replicates someone manually pressing a power button. It just does it automatically.

    Ok, after even more additional questions / confusion, the schematic for my Auto Power On Module has been updated and more information added.

    Cheers

    I'm using a laptop with no battery, running off an inverter... the inverter 'on' signal is from my deck.... at the moment, I have to turn off/Hybernate the PC manually using the power button I mounted on the cash... but I'd like to install an off-delay relay for the inverter and a pulse relay from the ingnition....

    So the pulse will be for the power button and the off-delay will be for the inverter on signal and it would need to be on for about 15 seconds.... long enough for the PC to hybernate...

    That's what I need to do.... I know how and what I need to do it... but some of the parts are expensive and I don't have time to do it right now, so it'll have to wait until next summer..

    But I like your auto on function... I'll have to try that sometime... and thanks for sharing the circuit...
