Default case power switch mod [antec300]

i want to mod my power on/off button on my antec300 case.. change it to like a safety toggle switch or something, i havent decided yet.. what are the things i should look for in a switch for that mod... ive read so far that it has to be a momentary 2state switch. anything else? has any one done that?, can give me pointers?

I like your idea!

AHH! A rocker switch.. Push to turn it on and then it returns to it's prior position... Maybe with an LED!

Here ya go.. 12v switches.. Look into automotive switches..
Switches, Toggle Switches, Rocker Switches, Push Button Switches, Foot Switches
