i'm trying to automate the shutdown of my pc by x10 (or possibly z wave). What i'm thinking of doing is using a UPS and an appliance module.

I would then cut the power to the UPS, and get it to do a shutdown. The main problem i see is how can i switch the pc back on, as the power swtich needs to be pressed.

Anyone got an alternative/ideas?

Thanks.

snx.
