Remote Flex6600M Reboot  Turn-On Problem if my 12V Supply goes off 

Question 

How to Turn On Remotely ???

Push Green Power On Button Remotely ?? Can not do that Remotely !! 

Does Flex have a way to Turn back On again the the Flex6600M remotely with a
Control Line can turn back on remotely in case I lose 12V on back of radio
due to a power outage - etc ?

Have a Data Loggers Web Power Switch to Turn 12V Supply On & Off but 
Once Flex6600m goes off and I lose 12V and not turn the Flex6600M back
ON again to boot up Flex6600M

See page 24 of your 6400/6600 User manual. The "Remote Power On" jack does what you want. Use a Data Loggers relay to short this input to turn on the radio. Open it to turn the radio off.

When opening the relay, does the 6400/6600 go through the "normal" shutdown process or does it simply disconnect power?

The relay acts just like pressing the power switch. The radio does its normal boot-up and shut-down routines. You need to have 13.8V applied before closing the relay, and keep it on after opening the relay until the radio has shut down.
