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 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.
Arduino is powered by computer via usb.Relay has its own unit and no relation with arduino.The relay unit just turns on the computer.
QuoteArduino is powered by computer via usb.Relay has its own unit and no relation with arduino.The relay unit just turns on the computer.Soooo, the arduino is being powered by the same computer you want to turn on and off?Off, I can understand, but if the computer is OFF then how will it turn back ON if the arduino has no power?
