  • really, you would just need to pull high* one of the contacts on your power button. You could do that with a PIR and an arduino. You could use a spare 12v off the power supply** inside the computer to power the arduino and hook up a digital pin to the power button.
    * or low. Not sure.
    ** not sure if you will have spare power lines. YMMV.
    P.S. If you meant a laptop, you can ignore this.

  • Is it possible to bend the MOSFETs over to enable you to put another shield on top?

  • +1 to that! Don't get many chances to do things like that here in the UK.

  • No, because the red area is more in the $90 - $100 range, so each unit of area is worth more money.

  • Yes, but you will need to seal it again. You can do this with heatshrink. Ladyada has a good tutorial for EL wire .

No public wish lists :(
