I have been working on a system which allows to turn on a PC without physical presence. I'm using an Orange Pi platform with a board designed for testing the embedded systems.
green cable from the ATX power supply is connected through the relay to the mo-bo
power-on button cables are connected to the circuit which acts like an open-collector.
How do I want this circuit to work:
- I turn on a relay (green cable is shorted directly to the mother-board)
- After 1 second I enable for a moment an open-collector circuit.
- If it comes to shutdown, I turn off the relay
Is it gonna work? Remote working is what I want to gain. Orange Pi is connected to the network and I operate it using SSH.
