Hi,

I am triggering a pc on-off by a rf remote.I placed my arduino sketch at startup menu at that pc.But sometimes it doesn't start up or there is a problem with remote.So when there is a problem, I have to go near remote pc.So I thought that if a led blinks on and off for one second when the sketch is on,and when I turned the pc another led blinks from another pin.

Any suggestions?

I have no clue what you just asked. Could you please restate the question, clearer.

Yes very confusing on what and how you are doing this. An arduino board plugged into the USB port, if it already has a sketch loaded into it, does not need any software in the PC to start it up. Once the PC's USB port has +5vdc power on it the arduino board will start running it's sketch code. Perhaps if you posted the arduino's sketch code here we could see at least what it is trying to perform.

OK.I will try to be more clear.

I am running an arduino sketch on a remote computer.I am turning this computer on by a radio frequency controlled relay.It often works but occasionaly it doesn't turn the computer on.When it doesn't,I assume that it(so the arduino) is running and that takes time for understand me the arduino isn't running.So I wanted to be sure that the sketch is running by observing the led connected to an output pin.It will blink on and off for just a second.

Sorry you are right.It is an application that interacts with the sketch .
