OK - this REALLY has nothing to do with SQA. I don't know where to ask this question, so I thought I'd start with some (computer-savvy) people I know.
I want to use a standard PC switching power supply (with remote on/off, which is how they come these days) to drive a couple of fans. But I don't know how to jumper the motherboard connector (assuming it's even possible) to make the power supply "permanently" on.
Is anyone familiar enough with the power supply to help? Failing that, do you have any suggestions where else I could ask this question?
I am using a (stand-alone) PC power supply (i.e. no PC) to power a couple of muffin fans to cool my stereo. In order to do that (and I'm sure the power supply is well capable of the load), I need it to come on immediately that I power on my receiver. I will, of course, plug it into the "auxiliary" power output on the back of the receiver. But as it stands, without a "trigger" to turn it on, it just sits there, quietly sleeping.
Incidentally, however, running the fans while my <u>PC</u> is off might not be a bad idea - it DOES get pretty hot in the summer!
