turning a pc on
ok, is there a way (even if it includes duct tape) to have a computer turn on as soon as it is plugged in?
also, i assume that i can have windows boot up and have a program run automatically from editing something in the registry, correct?

Stick a tooth pick in the side of the on button. Easiest,cheapest,fastest way.

will the computer turn on and stay on if the button is permenantly depressed?

Yes....press it now and no difference, all it does is latch an SCR to the on state. Reset you know.

Look at the front panel header on the mobo. Put a jumper on the PWR BTN one. Done.
Why do you want to do this is the next question.

turning a computer into a full size juke box with touch screen. my brother wants to be able to just plug it in, and have it turn on automatically

butch I am mistaken on that, that only works on some machines.

Plugging it in and pulling the plug seems more tedious than putting a toggle switch on it.
notice no one said anything about turning their wife or girlfriend on by plugging anything in, we must be growing up

it is going in a full size arcade cabinet and will also have a ddr type game on it.
if i cut the wires from the current on switch, can i just add more wiring, and buy a switch at radio shack?
