he can't cut it off he needs the power switch

HINT: an ATX power switch is a momentary push button. this should help anyone who knows about electronics

or how about connecting the AT switch directly to the ATX PSU. it would have to be connected to the right wires

that is pretty lateral so i'll concede to that apokalipse. he could forego having a reset button on his case and use his reset button as a power switch as the reset button an AT case is the same kind of button as an ATX power switch. plug the reset into the power header pins is the solution i had in mind.

edit: apokalipse you can either write the next question or pass

edit2: remote switch. that is an interesting idea. i was just going over it in my head i think it could be done with a remote doorbell and a capacitor.

Timmy has a wireless network set up in his house, and he is unable to connect to his router. he has WPA-PSK on and has forgotton the key
(also, just say he is not able to use a wired ethernet card for some reason)

yep, that's one. there's also another.
sometimes it doesn't work, because some routers only show asterisks.
