Posh surge protector

Does anyone know where I can purchase a surge protector with master slave facility?
Now I do not mean any old surge protector what I have seen is like any other surge protector with a master slave function. This is a very definite plus for us Computer geeks.
Let me explain you plug your computer into the master socket & plug all your other hardware into the other sockets [the one I have seen had 4]. Now once you just close down windows the other 4 peripherals are automatically switched off. The same works in the reverse switch on the computer all slave sockets are now live.
your help would be appreciated.
Have found some help via Google, but not a retailer or a price
TIA

Yeah , but at least you have confirmed that they exist ( or did )

Mega quick respose thanks! Perhaps others ?? will come up with some ideas?

I'm sure I saw these in my local B&Q. One socket is black &, turning this off turns off the power to the other sockets. Thought at the time what a good idea and how i wished I could use it [my set up does not allow it, so i have to power down everything manually]. About £30 I think.

I have tried to look on their web site, but it is not listed there.

turning this off turns off the power to the other sockets.

sjould read

turning of something using this socket would stop power being supplied to all the other sockets

Rayuk , saw those since posting. but was quoted only £195 ( will get Bill Gates to provide Xmas present)
They were a touch over the top but on the right lines.
