    Yes, you could. You would either need one of the latching type (on/off) or the momentary type (power switch on a ATX power supply).

    Not bad prices either. I tried to build something like this myself a while back, and it turned out pretty ugly. $20 for a set, not bad.

    Good find.

    I actually want to be able to turn my system on manually as I will only use it when i'll be in the car for a decent amount of time (not my 5 minute runs to panda express), so the only thing that's important to me is a shutdown controller. This might be an interesting way to be able to turn on the machine, but I will probably just end up installing some sort of switch on my dash.
