Ikea tracks are not meant to be connected together (usually they're too short for that to work).
I replaced the switch from an ikea ansluta power supply with a pushbutton switch that I ordered from  ebay.
After that you just follow Ikea's instruction for installing the doors, and then you're done! We spoke to some of the local suppliers, and for a basic murphy bed and cabinet with no additional storage space the price would have been about $3,500.
Neither of those were what we were looking for either, but they inspired me to try something similar with some tweaks.
If I were doing it again, I would probably increase the spacing to 180cm, just to get a few more inches clearance. Sorry, I've tried to reply to this twice but my responses keep disappearing for some reason.

The fact that is provides a full mattress makes this more suitable for a small apartment or flat as opposed to student housing. With laptops today a person can work anywhere and therefore, does not need to be tied to a desk. I do like the darker wood stain and think that this would be a sharp model for a living room. Combining seating with bedding may prove more useful than a desk-bed combination depending on how your time is spent each day.
I see that a student may need the desk-bed combination whereas a worker may need the sofa-bed combination. The concealed twin bed is at the bottom of the shelf and appears quite natural upon first glance.
This Murphy bed would be great in a one room floor plan where there is less structure and perhaps the living room, kitchen, and bedroom are altogether. I really like this bed for a student since the desk is a nice size allowing for students to spread out assignments and have enough work space.
The mobility of Isola would come in handy for students that need to put-away their bed when not sleeping and perhaps even roll it to a specific area.
I like hidden beds such as these since their purpose is to make guests not see the bed at all. This model is well hidden away in a storage unit that might appear as some type of shelving to help organize a home. The queen model also has a fold down work table that can be used for many different activities. Hide” is a sofa bunk bed that folds out into several sleep areas that can accommodate three people. Of course, this is very cozy for a family to be so close together and hopefully a feud would not erupt! This design is intended for quick sleeping arrangements that might be suitable in a shelter, fire station, or another public area that provides assistance to the community. My first impression is that this piece would be much more difficult to move due to its size. On the other hand it does provide a full room of furniture in one unit which may save time in shopping for complimentary furniture pieces.
There is not a real fancy element to it which makes me picture it as a part time solution for accommodating guests.
The challenge with a tall piece like this may be in finding a closet in your home to store the bed. It does fold up and can remain on a wall though it may not look that is serves a dual-purpose.
