Hi Guys,

Wanted to share this.

I developed a circuit with a fan that switches off using a transister.

The circuit has Power button & led  (many guides online for these)

Fan uses a 5v pin however I wanted the fan nto go off whn the pi was shutdown so i did the following;

The Led uses the serial interface to lights up (which turns off with shutdown unlike the 5v pins)  so i have a transister monitoring the LED circuit and only connecting power to the Fan when active.   Works perfectly.
