when I turn on my Pi (Media Center) I want the peripherals I use with it to turn on, too. Analogously when I turn it off.
I thought of a master slave socket board where the Pi is plugged in as master and the external Drives, TV and sound system are plugged in as slaves.
The problem with that is that the Pi uses too little energy to trigger the switch in the socket board that turns on the slaves even if that switch is adjustable (current / power). You just can't lower the threshold to such low values.
At least I couldn't find a socket board which would work for me.
Has anyone of you have an idea how this could be done?
Thanks in advance,
