Here's my problem... The power switch on my LCD monitor is a momentary switch, and if I disconnect then reconnect the power to the monitor, I have to manually push the momentary switch again to turn on the monitor, which is a pain because the monitor is behind a control panel. So I want the monitor to turn on automatically whenever I plug in the power. Any ideas? AFter much consternation I came up with a super simple circuit. I animated the function of it here: http://brainstep.com/circuit2.html Obviously I'm not a EE (EE's: please keep the laughter down to a dull roar), so... will someone tell me if am I completely whacked out - will this even work and if not why? I've seen some possibilities using a 555 timer circuit, but my idea seems so much easier (less soldering) - I could even probably do it all on a long terminal block and cover it with heatshrink tubing. Thanks in advance for ANY feedback!
