Even if this idea drops a power supply, they can start. When does not drop an AC power , uses Wake On Lan, and can start.

Figure shows the power switch circuits of The PC.
A. shows the added components for generating the signal from PC power supply.
B. shows the dip switch of enable or disable selection.

(B)Option Enable/Disable
