3.1.1. Bypassing the power switch

The power button on the front panel of the PB-A8 baseboard is typically used to power on the system.

If a link is placed across J41 (FORCE ON), the power is forced on and the Power push switch has no effect.

A jumper must not be placed across connector J40 (POWER). You can, however, use this connector to attach an external push button if the Power push button is not accessible or the board is mounted in the enclosure.
