Hello everyone,

I recently got a computer speaker, and was wondering if there is a way to make the speaker turn on automatically as soon as the computer turns on. So far it seems that, with plugging it in through the av ports and through an adapter, the speaker does not turn on automatically, and I must do it myself. I also have to change the "source" for the speaker to av each time. Would plugging it into the computer through line-in instead fix these problems? Is there any other way, or am I just going to have to turn it on and change the source manually every time? Thanks!

If your speaker has a power adapter, you need to plug in the speaker power adapter in 

the Master Controll Outlets of a UPS Unit. The speakers should turn on when the computer

turns on.

It would depend on how that speaker works. If its manufacturer has a website, you may be able to download a PDF of the user manual, and see if it is supposed to power itself up when it detects an input, or if it will come back on to the same input that was used last if the power is turned off and on again. If it will, then you could use a power source with a master controlled outlet (you can get power boards that do it too) that turns on when the computer powers up, or work from the power outlet switch.


If the speaker simply doesn't have that function and it's made so has to be turned on and source selected each time, then there's no real way around that (other than leave the speaker on 24/7, which is probably not a great idea!).
