Default Power Switches.

I am looking for one of those switches that they use on airplanes or the power switches on race cars, you know the ones where there is a cover they flip open and then flip the switch. Was wondering if you can buy one for computer cases?

They might have that at car websites too. They use those switches for lighting, NOS...etc

Awesome, that is exactly what I am looking for. You wouldn't happen to know how to hook one up so it works to turn my PC on and off?
