<DeadStar> I have a general question that will sound kinda odd
<DeadStar> how do power buttons work on computers
<DeadStar> Im looking in to having a rasbery pi host a web page that will turn on my big power hungry server
<SirWolfgang> it doesnt hold state, it sends a toggle signle on press
<SirWolfgang> which goes to the powersupple, normally brown wire on motherboard
<DeadStar> you think i coud just use a relay across the 2 pins of the power button
<myself> did you check the BIOS for Wake-On-LAN capability first?
<DeadStar> thats a good point
<myself> I mean, not to stop the wheel-reinvention party that surrounds any raspi project...
<DeadStar> didnt think of that
