So, I'd like to put [U][URL="http://www.frozencpu.com/products/5804/ele-237/Military_Style_Switch_w_Red_Chrome_Cover.html?tl=g4c401s318"]this[/URL][/U] toggle switch in a series with [U][URL="http://www.frozencpu.com/products/6100/ele-273/Red_Illuminated_Bulgin_Style_Momentary_Vandal_Switch_-_22mm_-_Black_Housing_-_Ring_Illumination.html?tl=g52c341s316#blank"]this[/URL][/U] momentary switch to power on my computer (Flip the military switch then press the vandal switch to power on) with the LED in the vandal switch acting as either the power LED or HDD activity LED. I'm fairly certain I've got it sorted out, not very hard.
However, it doesn't look like I'll be able to do anything creative with the LED in the toggle switch since its only got the one terminal marked "ACC", unless I'm completely mistaken and its power is incorporated with the other terminals or something. Would it be at all possible to incorporate another [U][url=http://www.frozencpu.com/products/6587/ele-321/Bulgin_5mm_Red_LED_Indicator_-_Recessed_Black_Anodized_DX1090RD.html?tl=g6c455#blank"]LED[/URL][/U] with the toggle switch that turns on when the switch is flicked on, even when the computer itself is off, maybe by using a battery?
The led in the toggle switch will light up when it's turned on.
BTW you can get much cheaper switches from an auto parts store.

Even when I exclude the "ACC" terminal?
I saw that switch for $7 somewhere else ......
Then what's it for...
Also, if all you're basing that on is the connections in the picture, that might not be the best idea.
