I see that on the HTPC header pin 7 is defined as #Power_Button. On the front panel header is the standard power switch pins (pins 6 & 8) with pin 6 defined as POWER_SWITCH# and a note that says:
Pins 6 and 8 can be connected to a front panel momentary-contact power switch. The
switch must pull the SW_ON# pin to ground for at least 50 ms to signal the power
supply to switch on or off.
Are these 2 pins tied together on the motherboard? I'm designing a custom controller board and would like to use that to interface/control the system. Am I correct in assuming that I can directly interface a microcontroller pin to pull the pin low?
I have a couple of other questions that I hope can be answered as well:
Thanks in advance for anyone's help in getting these questions answered so I can finish my board design!H61AG
