View Full Version : Restart after power loss???
03-05-2001, 10:49 PM
I've got an Abit BX6 Rev2.0 .... My ASUS board had a function that would restart the computer if power was lost to it...Does the Abit have this? I can't seem to find it...
Here's why I ask...
I got a X10 Appliance Module I want to plug my comp in and have it turn on remotely when I park my car :D
The problem is that my case doesn't have an On/Off switch...it has a button, puch on/push off..
Any other ideas?

:disa: You've taken laziness and impacience to a new level (and i've taken bad spelling to a new level :heh: )

heh...u think that's bad...If i can get this to work I'm gonna put one on the computer in my Roommates room and one on the printer so I don't have to walk over there to turn on his PC and printer when I wanna print :)

You could do a little wire splicing. I've used different kinds of switches (light switch, little twist thingy, etc.) and power buttons. There's no reason you couldn't just splice a switch onto the cable going onto your mainboard (should be two wires with what looks like a jumper at the end). Just remove it from the power button and install any switch that suits your fancy. I think. :)

Yeah...I thought about that...but that would be horrible ugly...Maybe if I could find a AT switch small enough...but no luck yet.

Oh... so you are lazy enough to have to do all of this, but you want it to look nice?? :hmm: :laugh:

Think management will complain if I put them in my dorm to boot my computer, oh wait my computer is always on.
