All correct. But I can watch when the pc reboots, and it reboots in line
with the starter going o/c. It's only rebooting it the odd time now.
When I found the cpu thing, I tried a coulpe of times as it was waiting
for a bios password.

This is all going on in my workshop. I have a feed for mains input which
brings phase, neutral and earth through a three phase circuit breaker.
This is handy, as the circuit breaker provides 100% isolation and allows
soldering of the unit under test without fuss or bother (No neutral-->
earth faults).

I have switched on dead shorts occasionally without rebooting that pc. 
I'm not worried about inrush ;-)
