    Hello,

    Need to wire an old mobile phone (has vibration) to a PC for remote power on. Now I know it's been done from a few internet vids but can't find detailed instructions. Please, any step by step instructions out there?

    Than you.

    I'm not entirely familiar with the way mobile phones work, but if you're using it solely for remote turn-on, I guess you could just wire up a relay to your telephone's main speaker and the other bit to your PC's on-button cables?

    You'll have to change the BIOS so the on-button won't shut the PC back down again or force it to enter sleep-mode, though.
