PC/WS having Contact Points Emulating Intelligent Power Supply Switch

   Personal computers or Workstations which has contact points
which emulate intelligent power supply switch.  Personal computers
or Workstations which has the function of no voltage contact points
which can emulate Power on switch.

   (MERITS)

   Power supplies of so-called ATX (interational standard of
motherboard) compatible PCs or workstations are very intelligent, so
they can't be controlled by AC source power on/off.  This means it is
impossible to control the power of PC/WS from remote or
automatically.  This type PC/WS can be controlled from out side.
